Mercedes-Benz has rounded out its Australian CLA sedan and GLA SUV lines this week, introducing the ‘250 4Matic’ version of each.

The new models join the top-shelf CLA 45 AMG and GLA 45 AMG performers as the second pair of all-wheel-drive offerings in each line-up.

Arriving in place of the front-wheel-drive ‘250’ models originally planned, the new 250 4Matic variants launch from $64,900 in CLA form and $57,900 for the GLA (both exclude on-roads).

Both models are powered by Merc’s new turbocharged 2.0 litre four-cylinder petrol engine, delivering 155kW and 350Nm - just as it does in the A 250 hatch and B 250 compact MPV.

A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic is the only transmission option, matched in the CLA model to Merc's 4Matic all-wheel-drive system.

The GLA 250 4Matic also features a new version of 4Matic with fully variable torque distribution, able to send up to 50 percent of torque to the rear wheels.

An shift- and accelerator-adjusting off-road mode is also standard with the GLA model, along with Downhill Speed Regulation for tricky descents.

Fuel use in the CLA 250 Sport 4Matic is listed at 6.6 l/100km, while the GLA 250 4Matic promises a return of 7.0 l/100km.

Carbon emissions are listed at 154g/km with the CLA and 162g/km for the GLA.

The CLA 250 Sport 4Matic boasts a 0-100km/h time of 6.6 seconds, marking a 0.1 second improvement over the CLA 250 Sport that will no longer be appearing.



Key standard features with the CLA model include 18-inch AMG five-spoke alloy wheels, sports seats in ‘red cut’ leather, Intelligent light system, a panoramic electric sunroof and satellite navigation.

With the GLA, there’s larger 19-inch five-spoke alloys, Artico artificial leather trim, Intelligent light system, panoramic electric sunroof and satellite navigation.

Also standard in both is a 14.7cm colour display, iPhone and Bluetooth connectivity, dual-zone climate control, auto wipers and headlights, and powered/heated front seats.

Standard safety features with both include nine airbags, brake assist, adaptive brake with hold function, Attention Assist, blindspot monitoring, electronic stability and Pre-Safe collision avoidance.
