A few days ago we showed you some spy photos with the upcoming Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG and now we have a new batch of photos with the standard version. This pre-production model was spied near the Nürburgring base and we can see once again that it will be pretty much a baby CLS in terms of design.

Based on the new A-Class, the CLA will be launched in 2013 or 2014 and it is expected to get a front-wheel drive configuration. Since it will share the MFA platform with the A-Class, the four-door coupe will be offered with pretty much the same engine lineup, with power output varying from 108 hp (80 kW) to 208 hp (155 kW).

The Mercedes-Benz CLA will be manufactured in Kecskemét, Hungary.
