We have been hearing rumors about the new Mercedes-Benz CLA which is scheduled to make its debut to the world on January 2013 in a Detroit auto show. There were a lot of speculations regarding what the new car has to offer. Recently, we were able to get hold of the spy shots of the A-Class vehicle.

Based on the leaked photos, the CLA borrows some of its design from the Style Concept Coupe which was unveiled earlier this year in a Beijing auto show. Mercedes-Benz also confirmed the innovative 4MATIC all-wheel drive system for the CLA.

The new A-Class is about 4.6 meters long, with four engine type options (3 gasoline engines and a diesel). The CLA 180 comes with a 122hp engine, the CLA 200 is equipped with 156hp, the CLA 250 with 211hp, and lastly, the CLA 220 CDI is packed with 170hp.

The A45 AMG version, which is rumored to offer up to 335hp, is set to make its official appearance in September 2013.
