It isn't even going to come close to an S6. S6 starts at $73k while this will be below $35k. S6 also has a turbocharged V8 with 420hp while this one has 208hp with a 4banger,

Will it though? I just don't know, I mean I am not really for it as long as they do offer alternatives with NA engines that can snap your head back but I just don't see it going away.

Let's be honest, at the end of the day if we can have a roaring V8 with 500 horses and still do 40mpg in the highway for less than $30k, we'd all be buying that and I think you would be lying if you said you'd pass on a car like that. But that just isn't possible and car enthusiast who still loves to shift their own gears and feel the road through steering are, sadly, disappearing. I can't knock electronics and the advancement of tech though because it has pushed the limits of cars these days and w/o them we can't really have monsters like the GTR and ZR1 who are still amazing cars for their price (even if very could really afford to own one).

At the end of the day, just be happy that there are options for everyone. A slow but luxurious $35k Benz doesn't suit you? A $31k Mustang with a 5.0L V8 is probably just a couple of blocks away from the Benz dealership and you can go for one of those instead. You want something you can push and whip around to it's limit on the streets? The FRS/BRZ is likely across the street waiting for you to snatch it up. There are plenty of option for everyone to suit your needs and wants really.

I think the proportions are terrible. I was excited about this car, but the wheels are tiny, the wheelbase is very short compared to the overall length, making it look weird, the boot is huge...disappointment.

Thats what im saying. This car looks tiny. Look at the 2 ppl in the front seats and how close they are to each other. The rear narrows to a whole nother level, I cant see more than one person squeezing in the back seats

Considering this car is suppose to be the new entry-level car for MB and is suppose to compete with the 1-series then it is understandable that it is smaller. Though they are also releasing the A-Class and B-Class in the US too iirc so I really have no idea what is going on and what segment/criteria this car really falls under.

No problem.

As for the S5, it is still much, much better than the CLA. Supercharged V6 with 333hp at $52k starting isn't a fair comparison.

CAR LOOKS VERY BLAND. WILL BE A HIT FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO PLAY THE PART OF FAKE BALLING THOUGH.

Rear looks a bit weird but overall it looks like MB has done a nice job on this whip. My only beef is the price tag and no AWD.

This is the 3rd time im saying it, but the car looks TOO scrunched up. If they made it a little longer, and tweaked the proportions a little bit more, then I think it would look better.

400hp or close to it is possible. I mean the C63 is already at 450hp and that is likely to increase in the next gen so the CLA hitting 385hp-390hp or more isn't too far fetch.

Problem with that is it'll cross through other platforms and will be out of the market the 1-series sits in. I think the CLA looks tons better than the 1-series though and actually looks more proportionate in comparison.

post #81 of 403
Looks like it's based of this concept but just more conservative. I wish they release the concept though

post #82 of 403

Yep, thats the exact problem.

 

The 1 series is the epitome of toy looking cars. This CLA is well...imagine if they just lengthened it a bit. It would be killer, even if they just extended the back end a few inches.

it'll go away because subscribing what people SHOULD drive instead WANT to drive has been a failure thus far.

 

if they can't give these cars away da 2017 loophole to do away with it will come to fruition, especially since will have MASSIVE drilling and that pipeline will be built by then.

I don't know if you can say it's a failure, Prius is still selling like crazy and almost all carmakers are still competing for the "highest mpg" throughout the line-up crown, I just do not see it going away anytime soon. It also resulted sale gains through most carmakers and best sales year in about 5 years iirc (just read this like 2 weeks ago).

Even supercars are adapting to hybrid electric engines to achieve high hp while retaining decent mpg. And everyone is still hung up on making electric cars or electric hybrids,

Not everyone cares about speed though.

 

Car is probably aimed at folks who were about to buy a fully loaded Accord or had a good deal on a Maxima but stumbled upon this "bargain" Mercedes. Nothing wrong with that.

At least they didn't go down to ILXs level of 150hp. 200hp is decent, a few years back that is where this segment been driving around in and as a new entry level, it's about right, I just wish it was a V6 instead of a 4banger.

I mean even BMW is releasing a 320i in the US soon, same turbo charged I4 fromt he 328i but tuned town to produce 180 hp but still starts at $33,500.

the car looks sick...but 208hp sick.gif ...Ill stick with my IS350 until they produce some other options
