I just read the CLA180 BlueEfficiency (which the US isn't getting) will get 0.22Cd!! Mind boggling stuff.

CLA is really growing on me. I can see myself trading in my C class for it, and that means something because of the power reduction. Love it in the normal version, not the ricey sport version

I like it. Most of the population won't know, nor care, that it is FWD rather than RWD.

So far the only thing I'm liking about the CLA is the videos they keep showing with big-name models...

there is no doubt it looks really nice and it is $5.5k cheaper than C class.
There is also strong hint of it being an hatch with the trunk, when you look at that front door and how high it is, looks like cab forward design.

still, it is nice to have an option... especially in the US. I think overall A class Hatch looks a lot better/less weird, but I am European and we dont like these hatch>sedan things.

Superbowl they are going to reveal something about the CLA. they keep saying something powerful is coming. I hope it is the CLA45 amg. Also they are going to reveal the price of the CLA250

edit: just saw the video above. At 29,900 its a good price. WIll girls chase me down the street if I buy one?

Brilliant! They certainly attack the market at the right angle (sex appeal + low cost of entry).

I just don't get the point of these cars.....what is the point of a 4 door car smaller than a C-Class. A CLS has no backseat room....can't imagine how non-existent the backseat is in this car.

It's just Benz lowering prices....it seems everyone has one now a days...really has taken away from the brand. Same with BMW.....
