New 2020 Mercedes CLA has been revealed for the first time at the CES in Las Vegas. Some interesting and cool features were introduced to this new model. First of all, we have new Energizing Coach option, which has already been used on the GLE model. For this feature, you will also need some kind of smartwatch, for example Mercedes-Benz VivoActive 3 Smartwatch or Garmin Smartwatch. It monitors drivers’ physical parameters and sends it directly to Mercedes MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) infotainment system. After upload, system can choose energizing package specially for you based on your condition. This way, it controls air conditioning, music, lights and even massage function. Amazing. Mercedes-Benz VivoActive 3 Smartwatch is actually more stylish and improved Garmin Watch. It comes with GPS, speaker, heartbeat sensor and virtual assistant. Inside the cabin, new 2020 CLA is equipped with to 7-inch displays and Burmester Surround Sound System. Optional equipment includes bigger 10.25-inch displays. Speaking of dimensions, upcoming 2020 CLA will have more room inside the cabin. However, this will also result in less space in the luggage compartment. It is 1.89 inches longer, 2.08 inches wider and 0.07 incher lower compared to the previous model.
