On the outlook for the new year, Schwenk said, "2019 is going to be an important year for Mercedes-Benz India, as we reach the milestone of "25 years of Mercedes-Benz in India".

From launch the new CLA will be fitted with the 250 petrol - a four-cylinder unit developing 223bhp and 350Nm of torque - that will be paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, with a series of petrol and diesel units to be announced closer to the model's release in May.

Talking about its dimensions, the new CLA measures 4688mmx1830mmx1439mm which is 48mm longer, 53mm wider but 2mm lower than the older auto.

Mercedes-Benz India's sales momentum in 2018 was buoyed by a young and comprehensive product portfolio comprising the New Generation Cars, the sedans, the SUVs and the AMG cars. The side windows appear narrower this time and the rear looks cleaner with smaller rear tail lights. Once launched, the new CLA will continue its rivalry with the Audi A3 in the Indian market. The new form also results in improved aerodynamics for the vehicle. It sits lower to the ground by 2 mm, however, it has sacrificed 10 litres of boot capacity, although improvements have been made to the width of the load opening space, meaning you should be able to better utilise the space that the CLA has to offer.

More engine options as well as an all-wheel drive configuration will be available once the all-new CLA-Class officially goes on sale. Once connected to the Mercedes Me mobile application, the timepiece communicates that information to the car's dashboard (the Infotainment system - MBUX). The lower section is visually separated from the main body of the instrument cluster by a "trench", and it appears to "float" in front of the instrument cluster, an effect highlighted by ambient lighting.

The optional Interior Assistant feature adds gesture controls, allowing the infotainment center to be operated by an occupant's motions alone, rather than by interaction with a control. Other options include a slew of driver assist systems from the top-rung S-Class such as active adaptive cruise control, lane-change assist, steering assist and parking assist.

The redesigned CLA, which features a stretched hood and wide track with exposed wheel arches, has sportier, fastback styling to set it apart from other compact cars such as the Mercedes A class. The auto will be manufactured at Mercedes' Kecskemet plant in Hungary.

New CLA gets similar design cues as new CLS, making it more attractive than before.
