The MAN CLA is fitted with a four-cylinder 180-HP in-line engine or a six-cylinder 220-HP or 280-HP in-line engine. Vehicles with a 180-HP or 220-HP engine have a six-gear overdrive gearbox. Vehicles with a 280-HP engine have a nine-gear overdrive gearbox. The proven MAN D08 engine series has been tested under everyday conditions and boasts high-performance powertrains designed for all vehicles and working conditions up to a reliable gross combined weight of 49 tonnes.
The MAN CLA is built on an extremely robust chassis with 20-inch or 22.5-inch tyres and has been specially adapted to the typical road conditions and loading conditions of the countries in which it is intended to be used.
The leaf-sprung front axle has a country-specific load capacity of 6 to 7.5 tonnes.
The rear axles – either planetary or hypoid axles – are also leaf-sprung and have a load capacity of up to 13 tons, depending on the model.
The extremely strong structure of the chassis and its good body-mounting abilities provide a high payload. This chassis impresses with a high level of driving comfort in all situations.
MAN EVB (exhaust valve brake) engine braking system
With a braking power of up to 180 kW in the D0836, the MAN EVB (exhaust valve brake) engine brake enables powerful, wear-free braking and controlled downhill driving at high speeds.
The engine brake increases engine braking power by briefly opening the exhaust valve.
