The CLA 45 AMG serves as an upgraded, Elite version of the Mitsubishi Eclipse. Both have similar acceleration, handling and nitro stats but the CLA 45 AMG has a higher total speed.
The Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG is currently the third best C class car, only behind the Sbarro Sparta and Maserati Alfieri. It can beat the Mitsubishi Eclipse, Jaguar F-TYPE Project 7 and the Renault Alpine Celebration on simple tracks with its superior top speed and nitro duration.
Being a good C Class car, the CLA can achieve a top 200-300 on most Class C exclusive TLEs, given the presence of the Alfieri, and is hence very useful for Events.
The CLA 45 isn't a practical option for Multiplayer tuning and will struggle against the Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition.
The CLA 45 costs 495,000 or 2,400 to buy. As of the 2019 Spring Update, upgrades cost 1,561,000 while Pro Kits require 520,800, 40 of each Class C Part, 36 Initial & Early Techs each, 28 Mid-Techs, and 60 i4 Engines.
Tune-ups cost 1,750 and takes 1h 30 min to complete. The Sixth Anniversary Update removed the car's Elite status.
