For Europe only

If I am being honest, I am not a real big fan of the style most Mercedes cars off this side of the SLA. I do really like the new CLA Edition 1 though, it looks very cool. The car will be a limited edition only available for 12 months in Europe. No love for the US Mercedes fans out there.

The CLA is a 4-door sedan and will launch in the Spring starting at 34,402.50 euros for the CLA 180. The car gets mountain gray, cosmos black, night black, cirrus white, or silver colors. Inside the car will offer leather with black microfiber Dinamica with yellow top stitching.

The top of the line CLA Edition 1 will be the CLA 250. It will pack a 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder with 211 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. It promises 0-62mph in 6.7 seconds and AWD. the car uses a DCT 7-speed transmission. The cars will also get sport tuned AMG suspension. A CLA 45 AMG version is also offered. The CLA 250 Edition 1 starts at 44,625 euros.
