It just came to my realization that we don't know if the FWD CLA will come with a LSD. Do the A and B series cars have LSDs for the front? It would kind of suck if they didn't. :D

might be safe to assume the Mercedes A-Class doesn't have a limited slip differential, i see it's listed for a lot of higher end merecedes benz vehicles but no where for the a-class.

if thats the case then it's likely the CLA-Class won't have an LSD (limited slip differential) setup. However the CLA45 AMG should come with it!

No mechanical LSD; the ESP computer does a simulated LSD using the brakes. Unless you drive like a gorilla, it's not a problem.

Simulated LSD using the brakes? Now that is an interesting one. Front brake pads are going to go haywire if I start driving aggressively or in snow :D

It would have been nice to have a real LSD. I much prefer FWDs to have LSDs. Especially with the torque that is in the CLA.

This is the "Mercedes Way"; it's how their 4MATIC controls traction too.
