This Benz Is Too Cool For School

As powerful as the star athlete, and smart as the AV club president, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 features the best of both worlds.

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 packs a powerful all-new 208-hp turbo inline engine into its sleek form. It is beautiful to behold and a pleasure to drive en route to dinner at Rye in Mission Farms for their famous fried chicken.

This four-door coupe has an athletic profile built for speed, but it’s also loaded with smart technology. The ECO Start/Stop feature automatically shuts the engine off at red lights to save fuel. When you’re ready to glide, it eagerly fires back to life the instant you lift your foot from the brake. Beautiful to behold and a pleasure to drive, the price tag is a mere afterthought.

Ride in luxury, travel in style with ample entertainment at your fingertips. From standard Bluetooth wireless audio streaming to the available COMAND navigation and innovative, integrated accessories, the CLA makes the journey across town smooth and sweet. And with 450 watts of available harman/kardon LOGIC7 surround sound, you won’t miss a beat.

The Mercedes-Benz Dealers of Kansas City celebrated the all-new Mercedes-Benz CLA250 with a launch party on First Friday in September at Snow and Company. The star of the show was the jaw-dropping coupe from Mercedes-Benz priced from $29,900.

While not as inexpensive as the base CLA250 model, the AMG-modded version makes up for it with neck-straining style and power.
