The Germans at Mercedes released details on the Sport editions for the A 250 and CLA 250. Under the hood, we get the stock 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit producing 211 horsepower and 350Nm of torque, linked to a seven-speed DCT transmission.

In terms of styling, the new Sport models stand out thanks to new 18-inch alloy wheels, a new exhaust system, special badges and red inserts.

Inside, buyers will get a new sports steering wheel while the ride is improved thanks to a sportier suspension.

You can opt for the front-wheel drive or the 4MATIC all-wheel drive system as well.

“The new Mercedes-Benz compact models have already been very well received by customers, and since the start of the year they have shown a sales increase of more than 60 percent against the previous year,” claims Mercedes.

Pricing and availability details for the new models were not released yet.
