Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class Production. Kecskemét – Production anniversary at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Kecskemét, Hungary: 500,000 vehicles have rolled off the production line since the plant opening on 29 March 2012. "The Mercedes-Benz plant Kecskemét, together with the lead plant in Rastatt, Germany, makes an important contribution to growth in our compact-car segment. In Kecskemét, with the CLA and the CLA Shooting Brake, we produce two models exclusively for the world market," said Markus Schäfer, Member of the Divisional Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz Cars, Production and Supply Chain Management. To celebrate the production anniversary, the Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán visited the plant. At the same time, he took the opportunity to personally meet the new CEO and Site Manager, Christian Wolff. Besides Orbán, Szemereyné Pataki Klaudia, Mayor of Kecskemét; István Lepsényi, Secretary of State for Economic Development and Economic Regulation from the Department of Trade and Industry; as well as János Nagy, Secretary of State, were part of the meeting. The fivehundred thousandth passenger car from Kecskemét is a cosmos black CLA, which is going to a Hungarian customer. "The production anniversary is a success achieved together by our workforce of over 4,000 people. Our qualified experts and dedicated employees produce passenger cars in top-quality. The Mercedes-Benz plant Kecskemét continues to have a very good perspective with its successful products. We are planning to further develop the location on a continuous basis. Currently, 15 million euros are invested in an innovative logistic concept", said Christian Wolff, who has been CEO and Site Manager of Mercedes-Benz Manufacturing Hungary Kft. since 1 January 2016. Wolff also expressed the company's gratitude to all its Hungarian partners in politics, administration and society, and in particular to the city of Kecskemét, for the on-going and constructive partnership. The Kecskemét plant largely contributes to the international success of Mercedes-Benz with its production of the B-Class, the CLA and the CLA Shooting Brake. The CLA and the CLA Shooting Brake are produced exclusively in Kecskemét for all markets worldwide. The compact cars are continuing on the road to success at Mercedes-Benz: In January, 45,840 customers decided to buy an A-Class, B-Class, CLA, CLA Shooting Brake or GLA, representing a 35.9 percent increase in unit sales compared with the same month last year. One year ago, the number of compact models delivered to customers worldwide increased by 25.8 percent, to a total of 582,531 passenger cars. "We are proud to state that the Mercedes-Benz models from Kecskemét with their innovative technologies are already sold in more than 180 countries. These models are likewise extremely popular in Hungary. Year after year, more and more domestic customers are choosing to buy passenger cars produced at this location," states Jörg Schmidt, CEO of Mercedes-Benz Hungária Kft. The Mercedes-Benz plant Kecskemét is part of the compact-car production network within the global, flexible and efficient Mercedes-Benz Cars production compound. In addition to Kecskemét, the compact-car network includes the lead plant in Rastatt (Germany) and BBAC in Beijing (China), where the GLA compact SUV is produced for the Chinese market. Furthermore, Mercedes-Benz Cars uses the Finnish contract manufacturer Valmet Automotive to produce additional A-Class models. Thanks to the shared compact-car architecture, each location can build all models in any sequence and any number, thus ensuring that the volumes can be distributed around the network flexibly and efficiently in line with current market demand. Last year, the plant Kecskemét produced over 183,000 passenger cars.
Mercedes in on a roll. Following the successful A-Class Merc introduced the CLA - a four-door compact coupe. Under the bonnet of the CLA 200 is a turbocharged 1.6 156 horsepower engine. Although the CLA still has most of the A-Class' faults, it is also an interesting alternative for the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class http://youtu.be/I5wFNtlC0Lo.

For the money, the CLA200 is well equipped. As part of the changes – similar to those seen as part of the recent A-Class upgrade – the CLA has seen the addition of a new 8.0-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, while it also has the usual Bluetooth phone and audio streaming, Garmin Map Pilot navigation and DAB+ digital radio. There’s push-button start – but no keyless entry! – an auto-dimming driver’s side mirror and rear-view mirror, auto lights and wipers, front sports seats in Artico manmade leather (they look sweet in our car), ambient interior lighting, dual-zone climate control and LED headlights. The 18-inch wheels you see here are the standard issue, and it has run-flat tyres with a tyre pressure monitoring system. The interior has decent storage in the doors and between the seats up front, while in the back there are smaller door pockets, dual mesh map pockets, and a flip-down armrest with cupholders. There are rear seat vents, too, which is a nice plus, but we particularly liked the ambient lights under the head restraints – very chic.
