    BMW and Audi are crushing MB in all segments (except for maybe SUV's) so MB is desperate. 

    This is a horrible strategy. They're eviscerating their own margins. Do they really want to compete with Honda/Toyota/Ford/ Hyundai/GM in this market?

    I dont know...the headlights look too big for the car, and the body just looks a bit too scrunched up.

    If its at the current price of the C250, well might as well get a C250.

    Will hold judgement for in-person perspective.

    Scratch that -- I'd put some gold 100 spoke on it. :smokin

    I will always support BMW over MB but damn I can't front this looks a million times better than the sorry 1/2 series that's coming out. But performance wise, it's not even better than a civic SI. :smh:

    The looks on the CLA is no joke, but no AWD? I hope they add that 4matic to it soon.

    Beautiful car regardless.  But CLS >.

    I really love the grill on this, quite unique but still looks great. When I first the concept I couldn't comprehend how they did it and even though the production model isn't the same it still looks good.

    One thing that surprised me though is why this is an entry level vehicle? I thought it was supposed to be a notch above the C-Class to compete with the upcoming 4-series "4-door coupe" (completely different from and a notch above the 3-series sedan)?
