Mercedes-Benz, the German luxury car manufacturer, will launch the much-awaited CLA-Class sedan in the Indian car market today. It will be the company’s entry-level luxury sedan for the country, which will directly rival against the Audi A3 sedan. The saloon will be made available in both petrol and diesel fuel options. The performance-oriented AMG model of the car was already launched in 2014.

Based on the MFA (Mercedes Front-Wheel Drive Architecture) platform that also underpins the A, B and GLA-Class, the Mercedes CLA sedan features an aggressive front fascia. The front gets a long hood with aggressive creases that merge into a single slat chrome grille flanked by Bi-Xenon headlamps. It features a sloping roofline that offer a coupe-like profile, while the rear-end largely resembles the larger CLS. Inside the cabin, the CLA sedan shares its components with the A-Class and B-Class, though the sedan is lot more spacious than the other two.
