Brabus unveiled their first tuning program for the all-new Mercedes-Benz CLA. Tastefully designed with subtle tweaks, the most notable updates are the quad-tailpipe exhaust system and the large Monoblock alloy wheels. This is the first CLA tuning program by Brabus but likely not the last as they’ve had a recent history of putting out a lighter tuning program before releasing the fully overhauled version.
Interior photos of the Brabus CLA were not released but we have not doubt that Brabus is offering a bespoke interior designed and created by their own upholstery shop.
According to sources, the Mercedes CLA 250 can optionally be equipped with a PowerXtra kit that pushes the engine to produce an extra 34 HP (25 kW) for a total of 245 HP (180 kW) and 385 Nm (284 lb-ft) of torque – an increase of 35 Nm (26 lb-ft).
