Mercedes CLA & CLA 45 AMG teased in official spy photos [video]

Mercedes has released the first official spy photos of the CLA and CLA 45 AMG.

Set to debut at the Detroit Auto Show early next year, the four-door coupe has sleek styling that is heavily influenced by the Concept Style Coupe. Both models have a similar appearance but the AMG variant is distinguished by unique bumpers, a revised exhaust system and five-spoke alloy wheels.

Engine options will carryover from the A-Class, but the CLA 45 AMG will feature a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 354 HP (260 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque. It will be connected to a 7G-DCT transmission and a 4MATIC all-wheel drive system with a "Torque on Demand" rear axle.

Mercedes also confirmed the CLA 250 - which features a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 211 HP (155 kW) - will be available with all-wheel drive.
