Santa Barbara Auto Group anticipates the arrival of Mercedes-Benz newest luxury sedan, the 2014 CLA-class.
Santa Barbara Auto Group is excited about the newest line of sedan expected later this year. Mercedes-Benz stole the show at Super Bowl XLVII this weekend, introducing the world to their newest car, the 2014 CLA-class, and Mercedes-Benz fans have been sharing in the enthusiasm ever since.
The 2014 CLA-class is an entry-level sports sedan that will be available in September of this year at just under $30,000. Production specifics are still in the works, but the sedan is expected to offer engine options including a 4-cylinder turbocharged, BlueTec diesel, and enhanced AMG as soon as the car arrives in showrooms.
Stealing the Spotlight
The Mercedes-Benz Super Bowl commercial lived up to both Mercedes-Benz and Super Bowl commercial standards and featured celebrities Usher, Kate Upton, and Willem Defoe. A preview of the ad prior to the Super Bowl revealed no details but hinted that something incredible was coming, and the follow-up commercial during the national event caused quite a stir among viewers. According to Edmunds.com, internet traffic for the CLA-class jumped 3,000 percent after the ad was played.
In addition to garnering attention for the Super Bowl ad, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-class is already setting records before it has even hit showrooms. According to recent reports, the 2014 CLA180 BlueEfficiency Edition has officially become the most aerodynamic car in production today. The luxury sports sedan features a drag co-efficient of .22. It stole the title of most streamlined from another Mercedes-Benz.
Elevated Efficiency and Design
What gives the CLA180 BlueEfficiency Edition its minimal drag coefficient is the small frontal area and a collection of trim-specific design refinements including a reworked front apron, improved headlamp seals, altered airflow guidance to the radiator, serrated spoilers, improved mirror housings, and other aerodynamically optimized design features.
Thanks to the aerodynamic design, the CLA180 Blue Efficiency Edition is incredibly fuel efficient. Powered by a 1.6 liter four-cylinder direct-injection gasoline engine, it boasts 120 hp and 147lb-ft of torque. The sedan rockets from 0-62mph in 9.9 seconds. The combined fuel efficiency of the CLA180 BlueEfficiency Edition is rated at 47 mpg through European test procedures.
Drivers will have to wait until fall to take the four-door coupe inspired 2014 CLA-class out on a test drive. Until that time, drivers are encouraged to contact Santa Barbara Auto Group to learn more about the innovative new model – an uncompromising four door coupe with stunning beauty, innovative brains, and turbocharged brawn that promises to elevate pulses at a jaw-dropping value.
