Mercedes-Benz has released a new promotional video with the CLA where the classy four-door coupe is being washed by Kate Upton in slow motion.
The German based automaker is placing its newest creation into the spotlights once again, this time with the help of supermodel Kate Upton. The beautiful blond is playing the main role in the video posted below and the company says that this new footage has something in “common” with the Super Bowl. The Mercedes-Benz CLA is the newest model to enter the automaker’s lineup and it was heavily influenced by the new A-Class generation, with design features adopted from its larger brother, the CLS.
The Mercedes-Benz CLA is riding on the MFA platform and it’s 182.3 inches long, 80.0 inches wide and 56.6 inches tall. Future owners of the CLA will be able to order the Multimedia package, which is adding the COMMAND infotainment system and the GPS navigation, or the Premium package, adding a Harman / Kardon audio system, silver accents, black trim, dual-zone climate control and heated front seats. In the U.S., the CLA will get the 208 BHP (155 kW) and 258 lb-ft (349 Nm) 2.0 liter four-cylinder petrol engine, mated to the seven-speed dual clutch transmission.
