The CLA45 AMG is beautiful. Saw it at the NY Autoshow.

The price at $48,375 is hard to beat.

That rear end looks like it melted and pinched/pulled. Not a huge fan.

It's hard to argue with the performance for the price though, and I think the front end is reasonably attractive.

And it won't even come with x-drive.

Ah, thought you just wanted to be seen. Shouldn't you be driving like, an SVT Raptor or something then? Audi/Merc/BMW/Lexus SUVs just give me the vibe of "Distracted Soccer Mom and/or Trophy Wife". If anything I'm more aggressive driving around them because if I don't take the initiative, they're going to do something stupid.

 

Douche and Bully to me = Diesel truck with smoke stacks / Hummer / Range Rover / G-Wagen if you wanna stay Merc.

I'm getting tired of the TRON look on cars front ends (LED lights).  Somebody needs to do something different.

post #9292 of 15320
They're just waiting for LED costs to come down. The current stripe ala new Audis looks good to me versus those still doing a string of lights.

at first i thought "$48K, damn that will be hard to beat", but i'm a little skeptical about the 45 part. It draws out a lot of horsepower from a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine, but it's not the same bomb of an engine that is in the C63. I wonder how it will stack up against a 1M or even a 135is.

How did you know I was a trophy wife?

High horsepower out of a FI 4cyl frequently means that the car is a bitch to drive in most conditions (hai Evo). I'm excited to see what this CLA AMG actually is, but that's another reason I'm skeptical.

I always prefer displacement and low end torque vs. a high revving turbo for real life driving.

I feel like they'd want to save the "maniacal and hard to drive" dynamics for "Black" edition cars.
