For some reason even though this is an average car, I am really excited!
Richard Nichols Jan 15, 2013
It will its a Merc! They always sell.
Scuttle Buttocks Jan 14, 2013
I predict this will not sell.
Nick Schnee Jan 14, 2013
Guys read... It says they'll have an 4Matic option available in the CLA250.
Jimmy Williams Jan 14, 2013
Really confused why they didn't just make this design the new C-class with RWD...
Paul Dickey Jan 14, 2013
Front drive...lame
Drew Humphrey Jan 14, 2013
They need to make a 4-Matic model.
Ashton Summers Jan 16, 2013
If the CLS was James Bond, then the CLA is Austin Powers.
Austin J. Bower Jan 14, 2013
I'd take this over a 3-series any day
Jacob Burford Jan 14, 2013
Nice! I'll wait for an AMG!
Jackson Michael Jan 14, 2013
I really like it
Dylan Bruder Jan 14, 2013
I liked the concept better honestly
Will Will Jan 14, 2013
Not liking this, but if its meant to be priced around the c class range then it looks acceptable.
Nick Schnee Jan 14, 2013
Ooh I like this, I like this a lot :)
David Parenti Jan 14, 2013
Kind of looks like a Hyundai sonata or elantra from the door lines. With cheap hubcaps
Paul Dickey Jan 14, 2013
Diggin it.
Elias Harb Jan 14, 2013
Im not a merc fan but im impressed
Shannon Sims Jan 14, 2013
I HATE IT! The concept car was much nicer IMO
Luke Purdy Jan 14, 2013
I love this car already
Matt Piccolo Jan 14, 2013
Looks awesome
Mohammed Suhail Jamil Jan 14, 2013
Ohhhh please let this be a 5 seater so that I could buy one!!!
Clay Williams Jan 14, 2013
I don't think I like we're Benz is going. The bulldog face just doesn't work for me.
Stephane Rioux Jan 14, 2013
those rims ughh they look like cheap hubcaps... other than that, looks good
JB Kolod Jan 14, 2013
Digging the hell out of that perforated grill
Sam Biggin Jan 14, 2013
Yes please!
Andrew Potter Jan 14, 2013
Good god I might need a dictionary to guide me through mercs exhaustive and boring range
Jake Judges Jan 14, 2013
Ehhh fronts to short, makes it look awkward
Austin Sullivan Jan 14, 2013
Nice!
Description: That's no bad thing, as the CLA adopts the svelte lines of the CLS in a more compact form with frameless windows and a rakish roof. The design doesn't just look good, but with a drag coeffic...

That might be the case, but doesn't stop Billion dollar companies from making mistakes. Like BMW purchasing Mini and haven't even made any profit doing so.
Rahul Patel Jan 14, 2013
I'm pretty sure they know what their doing..
Jason Brown Jan 14, 2013
True, but if they put bigger engines and make an AMG version, they might run into that problem.
Sam Reinsel Jan 14, 2013
Well, it's only got around 200 HP. Not like it'll be going crazy fast.
Jason Brown Jan 14, 2013
Hmmm. Is it good to have that low of a drag coefficient? Most sports cars and super cars have around 0.33-0.38. Any lower, can cause safety issues, (lift or structural integrity)...
Drew Humphrey Jan 14, 2013
This is really cool.
Description: The cabin is decorated in anthracite trim as standard with the option of aluminum, burl walnut or black ash. Base models get a freestanding 5.8-inch multimedia display set in piano black with a silver...

This is a great car for any women I can't see any straight guy driving this things way to girly
Jose Santos Jan 15, 2013
My next car
Rahul Patel Jan 15, 2013
I just can't stop looking at this car.. Too Damm sexy
Jacob Mullner Jan 14, 2013
The upper body line just under the door handles just looks odd towards the back. Doesn't look right with that taper
David Parenti Jan 14, 2013
Wheels look Jaguar-ish
Allen Kim Jan 15, 2013
But why FWD?:-(
Rohil Chauhan Jan 14, 2013
This is definitely a 2 series rival. Mercedes are beating BMW in terms of releasing it first though. Should be a good fight once both cars have the best versions released. M2 vs cla amg black!
Dylan Bruder Jan 14, 2013
Better looking from the rear
Alex Smith Jan 14, 2013
I think under $30K for aMercedes is hoping for a bit much. But I did hear they expect the AMG model to only be around $45,000
Janak Solanki Jan 14, 2013
Looks a bit like the 1 series in the back.
Prince Huang Jan 14, 2013
If it costs under $30k then It's even more impressive
Drew Humphrey Jan 14, 2013
This is great. A 4-Matic model would basically confirm it as a Euro sportscar imo
Matt Piccolo Jan 14, 2013
Very nice
Mohammed Suhail Jamil Jan 14, 2013
Oh please let this be a 5 seater so I could buy one!!!
Shivash Singh Jan 14, 2013
Nice but the back looks like the end of a bmw 1m
Sam Biggin Jan 14, 2013
Yeah that looks awesome
Austin Whitener Jan 14, 2013
Wow that's really nice it's like a short sports car but with 4 doors
Description: Premium options include heated seats, satellite radio and dual-zone climate control. Pricing has yet to be announced, but Mercedes is tipped to place the CLA in the same price bracket as the entry-lev...

It's not in Detroit
Chris Fitz Jan 14, 2013
Much better than the C class
Mike Antill Jan 14, 2013
AMG. Hehehe... Now we're talking
Jesse Williams Jan 14, 2013
This looks pretty.
Yasser Zahabi Jan 14, 2013
Finally ... A Merc I want :) (apart from Cls , sls, sl). :P
Jay Kolvenbag Jan 14, 2013
So smooth
Jesse Williams Jan 14, 2013
Pretty...Love the red.
Janak Solanki Jan 14, 2013
Nice grill. They should put LEDS in them so you can display messages. Like GTF outta my way!
Darryle Moody Jan 14, 2013
That grille looks dynamic.
Tyler Richey Jan 15, 2013
Sad part is, it will torque steer like a mother if you try to modify it at all.
Pablo Herasme Jan 14, 2013
No rear overhang... Must handle pretty nice
Edmond Gebara Jan 14, 2013
Nick, take a chillaxative.. I'm pretty sure he's just referring to the rear bumper slit..
Nick Schnee Jan 14, 2013
Uh, no. Just no. There is absolutely NO 1-series in this car!
Shivash Singh Jan 14, 2013
Bmw 1m backend
Pablo Herasme Jan 14, 2013
Looks like a wind tunnel
Scuttle Buttocks Jan 14, 2013
I'd much rather have a carbon fibre dash than wood.
Will Will Jan 14, 2013
And as i say, time and time again, WHERE'S THE WOOD! i dont know how people find dashboards nice without wood, especially when you're talking about a merc here.
Darryle Moody Jan 14, 2013
That actually looks like a nice place to work. Well done.
Matt Piccolo Jan 14, 2013
I agree! This is awesome
JB Kolod Jan 14, 2013
Interior looks fantastic, especially for the class.
Andrew Fortner Jan 15, 2013
I doubt Michael Schumacher drives a front wheel drive Mercedes Benz.
Scuttle Buttocks Jan 14, 2013
Yea why don't you tell that to Michael Schumacher.
Nick Sti Jan 14, 2013
Figures that a girl would be driving a Merc
Darryle Moody Jan 14, 2013
Uh, look at the honey behind the wheel. Oh, very nice seats and sweet contrast stitching.
