The latest CLA Coupe and CLA Shooting Brake from Mercedes-Benz feature upgraded standard equipment in the vehicle cabin, to strengthen their position “as trendsetters in the compact segment”.
The comfort seats, which feature in both the CLA Coupe and CLA Shooting Brake as standard feature a combination of Artico man-made leather and 3D-embossed, black fabric. Alternatively, customers can select to have the seats fitted in a sage grey color. The Progressive equipment trim offers three interior colors (black, macchiato beige and sage grey); this color offering is expanded in the AMG line, with five colors on offer (black, bahia brown, sage grey, titanium grey pearl/black and red pepper/black).
Mercedes-Benz uses 100% recycled materials to produce the fabric cover of the comfort seats. For the Artico/Microcut Microfiber seat cover, 65% recycled materials are used in the seat mirror and 85% in the bottom fabric.
Delivering driver information and infotainment for passengers is a free-standing double screen, made up of a 7in screen and a 10.25in display as standard. Two 10.25in displays are available as an optional extra. The CLA Coupe and CLA Shooting Brake feature the latest generation of MBUX, with three styles to the display system: Classic, Sporty and Discreet, all delivering differing levels of information.
Three additional modes, Navigation, Assistance and Service, and seven color choices increase the customization of the instrument cluster and central display to suit driver preference. The MBUX system is now also compatible with smartphones via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto Wireless. An optional Burmester surround sound system features Dolby Atmos audio to deliver music with clarity and depth.
Following the activation of online services in the Mercedes me app, the Hey Mercedes voice assistant is enhanced and becomes more capable of dialog and learning. This improves the use of voice commands to carry out vehicle functions.
