The Mercedes Benz CLA250 features include cutting edge technology in shifting, fuel economy and steering and a seven -peed transmission, as of 2015. The CLA250 is designed for top performance and convenience.
For top performance, the seven-speed, dual clutch transmission shifts automatically or manually. Two shifting paddles located behind the steering wheel allow the driver to shift manually. The ECO start/stop feature enhances fuel economy by turning the engine off during idling conditions, such as at a red light. It starts the engine when the driver releases the brake. The convenience of electromagnetic steering makes driving at lower speeds easier.
