Three of them share the “Engineered by AMG” catchword, even though they're not exactly part of the performance sub-brand some recent reports were mentioning, but of the “Sport” package line, recently introduced at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show for the CLA as well.
The A 250 Sport 4Matic is simply the all-wheel drive version of the the earlier-launched A 250 Sport, while the CLA 250 Sport and CLA 250 Sport 4Matic are - you guessed it – the two “Sport” variants of the CLA 250.
October 7 is also the day when the new entry level diesel in the CLA model range, the Renault-powered CLA 180 CDI, becomes available for ordering.
The pricing including 19% VAT for the new Mercedes-Benz versions in Germany starts at EUR 39,954.25 for the A 250 Sport 4Matic, EUR42,304.50 for the CLA 250 Sport and EUR44,506.00 for the CLA 250 Sport 4Matic. The Mercedes-Benz CLA 180 CDI starts at EUR31,178.
