Mercedes Product Roadmap Confirms New CLA Coming In 2019

Mercedes‘ CLA has been with us since 2013, and replacements for both the four-door coupe and Shooting Brake will be launched next year.

A host of new-age CLA prototypes have been spied testing throughout the year, so we knew they were on the way. However, a product road map published by the German automaker as part of its Q3 results has confirmed when the duo will launch.

Unsurprisingly, it is the CLA four-door coupe which will arrive in dealerships first, just before mid-2019. Deliveries of the Shooting Brake will then commence in the third quarter of next year.

The next CLA family will take clear design inspiration from the latest A-Class. Consequently, its front fascia will incorporate sharper headlights, a revised grille and new air intakes. Further alterations will be made to the vehicle’s rear, but it will still resemble the CLA many fell in love with.

Beyond confirming the new CLA models, the Mercedes-Benz product roadmap reveals that the GLC and GLC Coupe will go through a facelift during the first half of the year. Shortly afterwards, the German brand will launch its revised GLS.

Elsewhere, we can see that a facelifted V-Class is coming in 2019 along with an upgraded Smart car and the marque’s ‘8th Compact Car’, which is expected to be the GLB SUV, also known as the ‘Baby G-Class.’

Mercedes has admitted in the past that it is willing to cull certain models if they’re not selling well. Based on this roadmap, though, it doesn’t seem as any models are going away just yet.
