The company has brought two right hand drive units, one petrol and one diesel of the CLA-Class. For those who are unaware of the fact that, the performance-oriented model of the entry-level sedan, CLA 45 AMG, is already on sale in India.

The CLA-Class might be powered by the same engines that currently work on the GLA-Class SUV, which is a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder, turbocharged petrol and a 2.2-litre, 4-cylinder, turbocharged diesel.

However, the petrol model churns 181bhp and 300Nm, the diesel unit produces 136bhp and 300Nm.

The CLA-Class will employ Mercedes' MFA (Modular Front-wheel drive Architecture) platform, on which the A-Class, B-Class, GLA-Class and CLA45 AMG are also based.

Expected to be priced around Rs 30 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the CLA-Class would be the most affordable sedan from Mercedes-Benz in India.
