The stylish swoopy ‘four-door coupe’ and wagon ranges are still composed of four models each starting from the base CLA200 and topping out at the AMG-powered CLA45.
The front-wheel drive CLA200 is priced at $52,500 before on-road costs for the coupe and $54,000 for the Shooting Brake variant. Both models are powered by the same 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 115kW and 250Nm as the outgoing model.
Previously, the fully-imported (CBU) GLC 250 4Matic models were available in Exclusive and AMG Line trim levels priced at RM325,888 and RM328,888 respectively. Both have been superseded by this locally-assembled GLC 250 4Matic AMG Line.
The introductory prices are inclusive of Energy Efficient Vehicle (EEV) incentives, which includes rebates in excise duties. However, the price is still pending final approval from the government. Deliveries of locally assembled GLCs are expected to begin within the next month. The GLC’s direct competitor, the BMW X3 xDrive20i, priced at RM296,800 also enjoys similar a EEV Incentive.
Stepping into the range-topping AMG CLA45 gains additional 19-inch alloy wheels, AMG exhaust, AMG brakes, AMG racing seats, in-built navigation and a Harmon/Kardon stereo.
Both variants are priced from $92,215 and are powered by the same turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol unit found in the new A45 that is good for 280kW and 475Nm with power delivered to all four wheels.
