    The upcoming 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA was again caught testing by the shutterbugs, when the model’s test prototype was busy going about the road test schedule. This time however, the luxury sedan was spotted sporting lesser veils which also revealed some near-production parts on the test mule. While the new-gen Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedan is readying up to become the most affordable sedan in the company’s portfolio, the German luxury auto giant seems to be now concentrating on the CLA, which is set to offer a better overall experience.

    Going by the latest spy pictures, the new-gen Mercedes CLA seems to be taking to the CLS of course in a slashed down version. The Stuttgart-based auto major has not yet revealed any details regarding the timeline of the official arrival of the next-gen CLA, but as per the speculations, the new avatar of the car is expected to be introduced sometime in 2019.

    As already mentioned, compared to the last prototype of the next-gen Mercedes-Benz CLA, the latest test prototype comes with less camouflage, but doesn’t really reveal significant details. However, the lighter veils offer a better ground to guess what the front fascia of the car will be like. And, it can be ascertained that the new CLA’s face draws great inspiration from the new CLS which was unveiled in 2017.

    It can be expected that the new-gen 2019 CLA will be flaunting the patent diamond pattern radiator grille. The car’s new headlight design can also be expected to be similar to that of the new generation A-Class and CLS, keeping in line with the company’s design language for the new-gen car models. The test prototype seemed to be testing with a differently designed LED Daytime Running Lights. Nevertheless, these DRLs could be temporary units and the production version might get something else.

    Moreover, this particular iteration of the CLA didn’t seem to feature a sunroof, but the final version of the car is expected to come with a panoramic sunroof. The car’s side profile flaunts new sleeker wing mirrors that come with integrated indicators and also new stylish twin-five-spoke alloy wheels.

    The next-gen CLA also seems to have grown in size, thanks to the new MFA2 platform. The rear-end of the car also seems to have gone through significant updates. The test mule was seen wearing thick camouflage on its tail lights, which indicates that the car might be doing its test round with the production tail lights in place. The boot lid seems to be revised as well.

    While we do have some idea about the new-gen CLA’s exterior design, its interior changes remains unknown still now, as the cabin has not yet been spied yet. However, it is expected that the cabin design will also be pretty similar to that of the new A-Class'.

    The all new Mercedes-Benz CLA will also be sharing its engines with the new-gen A-Class. The range topping AMG CLA 45 will get powered by a new turbocharged 2.0 liter mill that will offer a max power of around 400 bhp, along with a revised 4Matic AWD system.
