Mercedes-Benz Philippines is set to debut the new CLA-Class during the 2014 Philippine International Motor Show on September 18 to 21 at the World Trade Center, Pasay City.

The Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class is designed with advanced aerodynamics to reduce the vehicle's drag. With this, the automaker says the vehicle's airflow management "enhances roadholding and stability."
