    I don't like it. Looks like a stubby and physically retarded CLS. Front wheel drive = Fail. Back seats are basically pointless if you're not a child. Much better cars for the price... I know it is a much different car, but maybe consider a used 2010-2011 CLS if you want that look... better back seats, better engine, nicer overall. Just my $.02!

    I'm not going to lie, while I've been trying to like the CLA, this post both resonated with all of my inner monologues about it, as well as made me literally laugh out loud. Hopefully it's driving dynamics or something sways me, but I can't help buy agree with everything said above.

    Ugly.....

    But hits some nice notes with me. Inexpensive, AWD for winter driving, 4.5sec quick, 4 full doors, great on gas <40.1 mpg> and has the pointed star on the front (more important to my clients then me). If I can get past the looks I might need to pick one up.
    More then a few.

    I really like the lines/style of the CLA, I am open to the CLS but I don't know what payments are going to be like, and trying to keep cost relatively low if possible, i mean i have a wide range of vehicles I'm Interested in, but of course if I were to get a diesel I wouldn't be paying it all by myself.

    Well since I will be commuting from Long Island to NYC I thought 40.1 MPG would be a good thing, I mean I havent decided either ill go with the CLA250 or the AMG it really isn't a big deal to me, it will be the first car I that is actually in my name which I will be proud about.

    My dealer (Herb Gordon/ Mercedes Silver Spring) had 2 white CLA's and a black one in stock so I went by to take a look. The salesman told me they already have a good amount of CLA's on order. I think I convinced my dad to sell his SLK350 and order a CLA45 AMG lol.

    WHITE G63 AMG (Current)
    WHITE F10 M5 (Current)
    BLACK F80 M3 (Current)
    WHITE FIAT 500 ABARTH (Current)
    WHITE E92 M3 (Sold)
    BLACK C63 AMG (Sold)
    WHITE CL550 (Sold)
    WHITE ML350 Edition 10 (Sold)

    I love the 250! It is tiny, but I'm 4 feet 11 inches so it suits me well. I want to look into it more also. Let me know what you think!
