Motor Trend, one of the most popular sources for all things automotive, has caught a glimpse of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA four-door coupe which is set to be the first of the concept-style couples for Mercedes, and should be ready to go in late summer of next year.
The CLA will be based on the same underpinnings of the new Mercedes A- and B-Classes. This versatile architecture will support almost any front- and all-wheel drive models, including hatchbacks, coupes, crossovers and sedans. The CLA is expected to be influenced, body style wise, by the CLS which has frameless windows, a long, sloping roofline, a blunt front end with oversized three-pointed star and inset mesh grille, and curvy, triangular rear taillights.
Current gas engines range available for the new CLA from a 1.6 liter 112 horsepower to a 2.2 liter 211 horsepower. Performance car lovers are hoping for an AMG version that will probably be powered by the 2.2 liter, twin-turbocharged 4 cylinder that produces 350 horsepower.
