Revealed: Mercedes Benz CLA (A Class Sedan) - the Audi A3 and BMW 1 Series competitor







Courtesy of http://www.spiegel.de/fotostrecke/er...e-87279-3.html

The exterior while not quite as gorgeous as the concept looks good. IMO, the exterior certainly looks better than the BMW 1 Series and Audi A3, while the best design of the interior of all 3 belongs to the Audi A3.


Imagine the AMG version of this. It's supposed to have some sort of 4matic system and rumored 4 cylinder with 370hp and 300 pound-ft of torque. Wow http://www.autoblog.com/2012/06/13/m...-hp-per-liter/

Let's be honest, all cars in this segment look dumpy and are not the greatest looking (some more than others) but the CLA actually looks the best. It doesn't look like a cheap car (other than the size) and the style is pretty aggressive with the lines.

Design too fussy... Very uneuropean... More like Korean...

The 2 side creases (?) just doesn't give any elegance to the car,... While the rear is too busy... There is no continuity between them...

I like ugly cars (Z3 M Coupe, 135i and X1 to my credit) and I like this a lot. Would strongly consider an A45 AMG if they bring it here.

Looks.. overdone. And that nose..


The new 1-series is ugly as well but at least it's RWD.

Ummm I guess good looking is a relative term. But to my eyes it looks like a hyundai elantra with a benz grille. Not good no sir not good at all. I'll take the looks of the 1 or a3 any day of the week.

The design language from its bigger brethren isn't translating well to that size...

Looks OK.. I doubt it will feel as good to drive as a 135i..

Also the 135i I think looks great.. especially from the back...

that's a 1m, which is pretty much a beefed up 135. JK.

That looks great; it's this one that has the problem.

Front - not bad.

Side has that "flame surface" effect ala the E85 Z4, but worse. Makes it look busy and disjointed.

Meh, indeed.

Whoa not bad, I've always like how Benzos look just not the way they drive. BMW needs to counter that with a 1 series sedan.

Damn looks good! I would like see more pics or in person, people say side looks too much indeed. I would point out then when you take pics shadows pronounce more.

I do agree with BMW needs to make a 1 series sedan, that doesnt cost a freaking arm and a leg and a...you know.

Why is this on the 1 series forum and not in general automotive?
