Mercedes-Benz recently launched the CLA facelift in India. Though there are no mechanical changes and the facelift retains the same 2.0-litre petrol and 2.1-litre diesel engine, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA gets a redesigned front and rear bumper.
Mercedes-Benz has priced the CLA facelift in India at Rs 31.40 lakh for the 200d Style, Rs 33.68 lakh for the 200 Sport and Rs 34.68 lakh for the 200d Sport, ex-Mumbai. These prices are approximately Rs 1.5 lakh less expensive than the outgoing car. (Read our 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA review here.)
