Minor design refresh
For 2017, the CLA gets new LED headlights, redesigned bumpers and a slightly revised taillight cluster. The rest, including the wheel options, remain the same. Overall, the exterior design is more or less the same as the outgoing model.

New phone connectivity options and bigger display
Inside, the biggest change is to be found on the dash which now houses an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, up from the 7-inch unit in the old car. The highlight though is the fact that this new system offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity for smartphones.

Road and Track package
The racier ‘Road and Track’ package adds white interior upholstery, carbon wing mirrors and a rear spoiler, red hub caps and some stickers. The Road and Track package comes in at Rs 1.78lakh over the price of the standard car.

Variants and prices
The CLA facelift is available in three variants (one petrol and two diesel) and five colour options including a new blue shade. The ex-showroom prices range between Rs 31.40 lakh and Rs 34.68 lakh. The car mainly competes with the Audi A3 which is due for a thorough update.
