But while the hatchback version will remain restricted to overseas markets, the CLA is designed with American buyers in mind. And this is our first proper look at the design.

It’s also got that nifty perforated grille Benz has been playing with, and from the looks of that last image, a few customization options for the interior. Expect a range of engines driving through a new 4Matic all-wheel drive system Mercedes has developed for this platform, to be topped by the CLA45 AMG.
