Mercedes-Benz offered a sneak peek of the all new CLA class for the North American market ahead of the Detroit North American International Auto Show today at a special event. This will be the first front wheel drive offering from Mercedes-Benz in the US market (Canadians got the FWD B-Class in 2005). The FWD model will be the only model available at launch this fall, with AWD variants of the CLA 250 as well as the CLA 45 AMG coming at a later date.

The CLA will be priced below the C Class, and above the B Class in Canada.
