The Real 3 Series Killer - The Mercedes Benz CLA

Well, this leaked Super Bowl spot is certainly a new direction for Mercedes Benz, puts the yuppie Cadillac ATS racer-boys to shame.

I think it's FWD and the looks are very front heavy and awkward from some angles.

No matter, at that price point it should sell well. The cheap c230 bombed here a decade ago, this being a sedan should help.

Great comercial! Not a bad looking car IMO.

ND40oz 01-22-2013 12:37 PM

It's half the size of the 3er, it's competition is the 2er Gran Coupe.

SilverX3 01-22-2013 12:37 PM

I am not a real fan of CLA but I am a real fan of Kate now

OMG ... she's awesome

Cool looking car IMO. But they would have done themselves a favor by getting a girl who had some nice looking legs. When the commercial started and they panned the camera from down to up, I got the feeling it was gona be some kinda joke or comedy-that chix legs are unsexy. IMO.

Yep, no hips or butt either. 2points for no fake'uns though.

Kate Upton is about the hottest woman on Earth and her legs are fine.

As far as the car, it looks to be an upscale VW CC, Acura TSX competitor not a serious 3 series competitor. You need RWD to play in that class.

What car? :dunno:

I just checked out more pics of the CLA at mbusa site, and it looks fantastic! Makes the new G and IS look even worse...I'd definitely consider this for my next car...Kate Upton looks rather nice too...

Are you still so sure the 320i is the answer to this new direction?

PK2348 01-22-2013 01:24 PM

its FWD. Not in the same class

A better look at the car and the features:

BMW has a lot of competition if they're gonna intro a 2er Gran Coupe!

Great looking car. Too small for me, but if they start this under 30k it will squeeze the VW Jetta and become the new top selling entry level German car. The looks are just perfect. I think this looks better than the CLS and the smaller body works better on this design IMHO.

I like it all except that crease that droop at the rear doors. Other than that, MB has made a pretty interesting looking car. It's too small for me, as well. With two kids, the F30 is really as a small as I can go.

not bad looking way better looking than the Lexus IS, lets see what Audi pulls out in 2 years when they up grade the A4 look. there is a reason why BMW 3series as won top 10 cars since 1992.

Car looks OK. She does have "funny" legs. And those feet! She must throw away the shoes and wear the boxes!

SilverX3 01-22-2013 03:15 PM

I'd take Kate Upton anyday

won't take the CLA as I will be very poor after maintaining Kate Upton

Axxlrod 01-22-2013 03:20 PM

Dude, are you really worried about her feet??? N4S

The only "Mercedes" part I see is a front grille... The rest looks like it was designed by some Asian company. Not that it's a bad thing, just not something I personally like.

What are you going to do if some of your biggest markets are Asian?

Red Lined 01-22-2013 05:54 PM

Needs more of Kate (less clothed) IMO
