I'm 38, and agree.

I don't think people give the CLA enough credit.

It is VERY difficult to release a fresh, different design like this, as opposed to what BMW is doing with the 3 series....

Don't get me wrong, the three is a nice car, very pleasant, but BMW plays it very safe and conservative with their styling.

Its a pro and con...they can't deviate too far from what people love...but they will always be evolutionary.

Showed the ad to my girlfriend last night. And the other Upton videos too of course. She loved the CLA. I can see it as her next car.

it's ugly (looks like a ford focus) and judging by that video, they are attempting to reach the intellectual market.

One of the best looking cars to me is the 1999 BMW 5 series. Nice lines and a body side molding to reduce some dings. Now very few cars have them. The 2004 3 series also looks nice.

You meant the E39? That was my first BMW, 2001 530i. I loved that car.

Living to 120? That would be probably 30+ years without a drivers license. No thanks!

How about 90 is the new 50, after which I wish to just kick the bucket. Any of you with me?

With 4matic and benz options this thing could be up to $50k USD. These commercials never show the <$30k version.

Only thing great about her are her ****. She has stick legs no hips and a chubby girls face. I wonder if she used to be a fat girl lost weight but kept the **** lol. There are plenty of other SI models hotter than her. Put it on your flipboard !

What's weird is my 530i seemed plenty powerful at 228hp, and I drooled over the 540i's 282 horses, and here the new 3er has over 300hp.
