In January, Mercedes-Benz revealed the second-generation C118 CLA, which rides on the carmaker’s Modular Front Architecture (MFA2) platform that also underpins the W177 A-Class, V177 A-Class Sedan and X247 GLB.

Design-wise, the style-focused four-door coupe appears to be a scaled-down version of the larger C257 CLS, but if you are still having a hard time spotting what’s new from the first-generation C117 CLA, Mercedes-Benz has prepared a handy video to assist you in that regard.

The video, which is just over two minutes long, highlights both the exterior and interior differences between the two generations, while listing some of the advanced safety systems from Mercedes-Benz’s higher vehicle classes that have made their way to the new car.

The C118 is also available with a choice of six petrol engines with the CLA 180, CLA 200, CLA 220 and CLA 220 4Matic, CLA 250 and CLA 250 4Matic, CLA 35 4Matic and CLA 45 4Matic+ and CLA 45 S 4Matic+, – the CLA 35 being something that wasn’t offered for the C117. There’s also a choice of three diesel engines in the CLA 180 d, CLA 200 d and CLA 220 d.

What isn’t mentioned in the video are the revised dimensions, as the new CLA is much larger than its predecessor, measuring 4,688 mm long (+48 mm), 1,830 mm wide (+53 mm), 1,439 mm tall (-2 mm) and with a wheelbase spanning 2,729 mm (+30 mm). The C118 has yet to make its launch debut in Malaysia, but are you looking forward to its arrival and do you like the look of it compared to its predecessor? Let us know in the comments below.
