Front end looks a little weird to me, but looks good from the side.

Looks too good to be true..whats the catch? It's RWD right? Is it bigger than the C class..but its cheaper? Anyways..Mercedes is going in the right direction..I think BMW is losing it with the 2 series coming out soon that's going to be FWD, and the X1, changing the name of the 3 series coupes to 4 series..I mean the 2 series is going to go against the tradition of BMWs with FWD..the Hofmeister Kink says that the all BMWs are to be RWD or AWD biased to the rear. Props to Merc though..their designs are awesome.

f course it looks good, but I'm more interested in the higher end, AWD CLA45 AMG. Although I'm not sure how I feel about a 4 cylinder, even if it produces 350hp and 300lb/ft. Going to be a good competitor to the new 4 series!

Businesses have to continuously evolve to survive and flourish. Take Porsche, for example. Along the same lines, their old brand image meant that they shouldn't have made SUVs, yet look how beneficial that's been for the company; the overwhelming majority of Porsche sales are Cayennes.

I personally think the idea is unrealistic. And in the end, the more choices the buyer has, the better - period.
So I'll counter with Cadillac. In the late 1940's through the mid 1970's Cadillac was the premier car company of the United States and if not the world. There are very few members of this Forum that hasn't pissed all over the Cadillac ATS. The brand's reputation amongst younger buyers is crap, based off of long-past images and product of crappy re-badged Chevrolets of perceived poor quality. All from Cadillac's demise in the '80s of platform sharing with Chevy and other GM (non-Cadillac platforms). All in the good name of evolution, flourishment, survival, and cost cutting, and brand dilution, and cash cow models. Shall I even mention Saab?

I drove many mid-70's Cadillacs when they were new and older late '50s models (my Uncle collects them). While not being sports cars by any fashion, for what they were designed to be (luxury interstate cruisers and town cars), they were well built, fantastic cars, and far superior to anything on the road at the time. Lincoln too; go find a mid-60's Continental. Those cars were built to a level not even approached today. Read up on how the Continental engine was bench run-in at the factory before installation and how the entire car was track tested prior to shipment.

This too is what Mercedes in America meant 25 years ago. You call it progress and evoloution. We’ll just see.

29k is pretty low, especially for a CL (These cars are known to be pricey, CLK, CLS) I'm pretty sure it will be about 35-40k here.

MB will get a lot of sales pricing it so low, but it will definitely dilute the brand since 29k is quite affordable to the average family. I wouldn't be surprised to see streets crawling with these.

Don't be fooled, $30k base price can easily hit closer to $40k after options are added. I think the car in the commercial was $40k+ as equipped. I bet the $30k Version sucks. It's also smaller than the C class, but I will admit I like the style
