The 2024 Mercedes CLA has just been unveiled and it’s been given somewhat of a fresh new look.

That’s not all, though, it gets improved tech and powertrain upgrades, too.

They’re similar updates to what was seen on the mechanically-related A-Class towards the back end of 2022.

The 2024 Mercedes CLA gets very slight styling revisions, which include a redesigned lower front bumper and revised grille that uses Mercedes’ trademark star pattern.

The LED ‘High Performance’ headlights have a new graphic signature inside the lamps, and are now fitted to all CLA models as standard.


At the back, Mercedes‘ designers have tweaked the diffuser, too.

Mercedes will also offer the refreshed CLA models in two new colors, ‘Hyper Blue’ and ‘Spectral Blue’, as well as three additional 19-inch wheel designs to choose from.

On the inside, the 2024 Mercedes CLA now comes with a 10.25-inch screen for the instrument cluster and infotainment systems as standard.

The German automaker has also introduced new ‘comfort seats’ that are trimmed in artificial leather and made from 100 percent recycled fabric.

No longer do you have to fork out for all the options, as the new CLA comes with more equipment as standard.

The equipment list includes a reversing camera and advanced LED headlights with high beam assist, which is rather handy.

The Driver Assistance Package has been updated to improve the steering control for the lane-keep assist system.

Same as before, the 2024 Mercedes CLA will be available in a four-door coupe bodystyle, as well as Shooting Brake bodystyle.

Petrol engines now benefit from a 48-volt mild-hybrid system to allow for a smoother response and bring fuel savings.

There’s even a plug-in hybrid option, the CLA 250e, which boasts a slightly more powerful electric motor, with faster charging available as an option, too.

35 and 45 AMG versions continue to be offered on the CLA, both of which benefit from new upholstery, with the 35 getting the same mild-hybrid system as non-AMG models.

If you seek something unique, there’s the special-edition ‘AMG Street Style Edition’ which comes with a matte ‘Mountain Grey’ paint job and fluorescent detailing inside and out.

2024 Mercedes CLA price

Pricing has yet to be announced, but expect a slight increase on the outgoing car’s $38,200 starting price.
