There is no denying that German premium car maker Mercedes Benz is looking poised to regain the territory it has lost to rivalling German car makers in the luxury and premium car segment.
Mercedes has been pretty vocal about the product-offensive that it has planned, especially for developing markets like that of India. The new Mercedes Benz CLA, which is being touted as the baby CLA, is one such car that is headed to our country.
The Mercedes CLA is expected to foray into the world of entry level premium car in coming months and will become the cheapest sedan in the Stuttgart based car maker’s product portfolio.
Enough has been already reported about the upcoming car and today, we have few more details concerning the new CLA that have emerged on the cyber space. Thanks to this new revelation, it looks like Mercedes might be planning to promote the CLA as a sporty yet practical sedan.
How much practical you might ask. Well, practical enough to carry your bicycles! Yes, it has emerged that Mercedes will offer a boot mounted bicycle career as an optional extra on the CLA. The bicycle career is a part of over 170 high quality accessories that will be offered with the CLA Edition 1.
This accessory pack includes- iPhone compatible Drive Kit Plus, Siri voice control, Garmin navigation, Google online POI search, Street View, access to radio channels from all around the world and provision of staying connected to the world using your favourite social networking site. The car also gets illuminated door sill panels, custom made rear spoiler and a roof mounted cargo box!
While ticking all the options on the accessory list might make the car much more pricier, it might indeed come across as a more practical offering.
