Set to make its appearance in Ireland in May/June, the new four-door CLA coupé is expected to bring CLS-like style to the compact A-Class segment, extending Mercedes-Benz's appeal to younger drivers - something that is high on the firm's priorities.

One of a number of new models being introduced by Mercedes-Benz, the all-new CLA - which was revealed recently in Detroit – will shortly make its European debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

With the bulk of production coming on stream in the months following its arrival in Ireland, plans are currently being advanced to determine the sequencing of model introductions in Ireland.
