The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 is gaining a new Sport Package Plus option. The automaker announced the new addition on its Facebook page, providing just a few details of how the package will augment the baby Benz.

Research

New mechanical bits include an AMG-developed front axle and suspension system to improve handling. Also included is a “more aggressive” exhaust system, likely a bit rowdier and louder than the stock version. AMG-style 18-inch rims will be a distinctive exterior detail, while the interior gets MB Tex/Dinamica sport seats that look almost as good as the ones found in the CLA45 AMG.

Information on the package’s release date or pricing have yet to be announced. The 2014 CLA250 is currently available with a $2200 Sport Package that adds the chrome diamond-block grille, 18-inch AMG twin-spoke rims, and perforated front brakes with painted calipers. Sport Package Plus could cost at least twice that, considering the more substantial items.

In all, the new package sounds like the closest you can get to CLA45 AMG-like handling, without the CLA45 AMG’s 355-hp 2.0-liter turbo-four or its pricey $48,375 price tag. The CLA250 starts at $30,825 and is powered by a 208-hp 2.0-liter turbo-four, with 4Matic all-wheel drive costing $2000 more.
