The first official images of the new Mercedes-Benz CLA have made their way on to the web weeks ahead of its January public debut in 2013 NAIAS in Detroit.

For months, we’ve been bringing you leaked info, rumors,spy photos and videos, and now we are finally able to bring you the official CLA photos. The baby CLS has inherited quite a bit of its design from the Style Concept Coupe, specifically the “floating dots” front grille.

The CLA is based on the all new A-Class, and is about 4.60 meters (181.1 inches) long and will be offered at initially with three gasoline engines and a diesel: CLA 180 with 122 HP (90 kW), CLA 200 with 156 HP (115 kW), CLA 250 with 211 HP (155 kW) and the more frugal CLA 220 CDI with 170 HP (125 kW). In September 2013, Mercedes-Benz will unveil the range-topping CLA45 AMG which is rumored to offer 335 HP (246 kW).

Mercedes has already confirmed a new type of 4MATIC all-wheel drive system for the CLA.
