Mercedes Benz of Palm Springs launched the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA with a party on October 25, 2013. Guests indulged in treats from local restaurants and in test drives of the new car. The CLA was enthusiastically received. Doing a lot of things well, the CLA has a very distinct and unique look. Ultra-sleek and at the same time ultra-efficient! Even though it sports four doors, an aggressive hood and sloped roof lines give it the look and feel of a sports coupe look. Inside, drivers will be pleased to find nice touches like high back seats, steering wheel mounted paddle shifters, and a tablet style screen protruding off the wing-like dash. Matching its athletic look, the CLA is equipped with a standard 2.0-liter Turbo charged engine that can sprint from 0-60 in under 7 seconds.
