With its custard-smooth styling, the new Mercedes CLA has attracted admiring glances from all over the world and few would argue that it needs more visual spice.

Good thing then, that tuning house Brabus has made a subtle attempt at modifying the A-Class-based saloon.

In fact the only real stand-out design features are a set of Brabus Monoblock alloys and a sports exhaust system with quad tailpipes.

The bespoke wheels are available in five different designs and customers can choose between 18-inch and 19-inch diameters. The latter option is clad in 255/30 ZR 19 rubber.

Its fat footprint is complemented by a set of Brabus sport springs that were specifically calibrated to use with the production shock absorbers and high-performance rubber.

Brabus hasn't gone into detail on what it's done on the engine front, but the company will reportedly offer a PowerExtra kit that pushes the outputs of the CLA 250 up from 155kW and 300Nm to 183kW and 385Nm.

The regular Mercedes-Benz CLA range goes on sale in South Africa this November.
