Mercedes CLA has you looking good outside and relaxed inside

Mercedes-Benz India sales rises 1.4% to 15,538 units in 2018

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".

The C118 Mercedes-Benz CLA - which was inadvertently revealed yesterday - has now been officially unveiled, the all-new four-door coupe making its debut at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

A new interior assist system enables gesture control of certain functions and it is said the auto can detect whether the driver or passenger is using the touchscreen and react accordingly.

Inside the cabin, the CLA features the same dashboard design as the A-Class hatch, which is dominated by the widescreen cockpit display that sandwiches two 10.25-inch colour screens together for the cutting-edge MBUX system with its "Hey Mercedes" digital assistant. An Edition 1 model will be available in the car's first year of production, and this one will feature the usual accoutrements of the type. There is an option for buyers to go for the front- or all-wheel-drive versions of the vehicle.

Inside, the all-new CLA-Class shares the same interior design as the other new compact A-Class siblings. This is a good thing, because we're unanimous in our opinion that the new A-Class has a vastly improved interior compared with the old CLA.

Samsung adds rival Apple's iTunes to TVs
The Samsung deal could be a step toward Apple distributing content to devices made by others. Apart from AirPlay 2 support, Apple is also bringing HomeKit support to television sets.

When it arrives in the USA, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 will be equipped as standard with the automaker's MBUX infotainment system that offers personal assistant features, similar to home smart speaker or smartphone functions. Mercedes-Benz claims that it has updated (or improved functionality of) features like active brake assist and active lane keeping assist, which are on offer as standard in the US. The system is able to distinguish between gesture commands from the driver and front passenger and functions both in sunlight and in complete darkness. The MBUX is the most advanced in-house infotainment system which comes with active driver's interaction. The largest tyre and wheel combination available will be 225/40 R19 wrapped over 19-inch wheels.

The CLA on display at CES 2019 was the petrol-powered CLA 250 which has a power rating of 225PS and 350Nm of peak torque paired to a 7G-DCT dual clutch transmission.

The Indian market has always had a liking towards Mercedes-Benz models over other major brands, ever since the late-20th century.

Borrowing ability from the S-Class limousine, it can drive semi-autonomously on highways and roads with clear markings.
