Carlsson has exhibited their tuned Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The Carlsson tuning programme ranges from aerodynamic components, sports exhaust, uprated suspension, alloy wheels solutions, performance kits for petrol and diesel engines and interior trim upgrades.

The exterior features a new front spoiler, aerodynamic side skirts and a new rear bumper. There are also stainless steel grille insert and a four-tailpipe sports exhaust system. The stance is improved by a set of lowering springs (-35mm) or an adjustable coil-over suspension. Carlsson CLA rides 1/10 and 1/16 RS wheels available in 18",19" and 20".

The interior boasts alloy pedals, illuminated sill plates and special floor mats. Upon request, Carlsson can create a bespoke cabin with premium leather and Alcantara upholstery.

The CLA200 can be boosted to 187HP (138 kW) and 300Nm (221 lb-ft) - an increase of 31HP and 50Nm. The CLA250 now produces 253HP (186 kW) and 420Nm (309 lb-ft) of torque – boost of 42HP and 70Nm. The top-of-range CLA45 AMG coming standard with 360HP (265 kW) can produce up to 450HP (331 kW) turning the compact four-door Coupe into a supercar killer.
