Yet the CLA Class is an important model for Mercedes-Benz nonetheless.

The wraps have come off the second generation of Mercedes' compact saloon, the CLA, at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

In terms of size, the new CLA measures 4688mm long, 1830mm wide, 1439mm tall and has a 2729mm wheelbase. The growth was primarily driven by Long Wheelbase E-Class sedan, which continued to remain the single highest selling model for the brand in January-December 2018 period. The rear of the auto features narrow tail-lights created to make the vehicle appear even wider. Driving dynamics of Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe has been significantly improved as the front and rear tracks are wider with 63mm at the front and 53mm at rear with lower center of gravity. Mercedes-Benz claims that the CLA continues to have the same drag coefficient of 0.23 as before.

It has grown in size, which has resulted in more cabin space. The voice recognition technology is improved and now recognises more complex commands. Low drag coefficient means better aerodynamics and that can make a vehicle go faster and more fuel efficient as well. A larger stabiliser bar and optional active adaptive damping which should ensure that it drives extremely well.

LAST year was the fifth consecutive record year for Mercedes-Benz Malaysia (MBM), which recorded an "extraordinary" performance of 13,079 vehicles sold, translating into a 9% overall growth.

The new 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 is a tech-heavy, style-centric sedan with a more potent turbo-4 and the automaker's latest infotainment system.

Mercedes has only unveiled the new CLA 250 variant that comes packed with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol which makes 222 hp and 350Nm of torque. However, Mercedes-Benz promises there will be a "broad range" of diesel and petrol engines available featuring manual or dual-clutch transmissions and all-wheel drive at a later stage.

Also worth noting on the CLA are its new set of taillights and redesigned rear bumper that further highlight the car's sporiter character. Other functions can be activated with gestures contextually, like extending a hand toward the rearview mirror in the dark to activate reading lights. The current model starts at $34,095, and we expect the new one will be at least as much, and probably a little more, and it'll be above the A-Class (which hasn't been priced yet, either).
