From this angle, it almost looks like a Honda Civic. It has an odd proportion in my opinion. Not sure how much it costs, but I think there are better options.

I like it - good looking ride, but they're just sorta small. What's the interior like on the AMG version? I was checking out some M4's and M5's in the showroom the other month, and it seems like the interiors weren't upgraded very much from their non-m counterparts. Sort of weird to see plastic dash doors and center console on such expensive cars.

Not a fan of the new MB styling, kind of looks like the car melted and drooped down. IMHO of the current big 3 Germans, (MB, Audi & BMW), BMW has by far the best exterior styling, while Audi might have the edge in the interior dept. MB just seems overwrought everywhere. Your opinion may differ! Obviously, judging from the growing numbers of MB on the road many do!

Thats a tough angle for that car and the racing stripe isn't doing it any favors. But to say it resembles the Hyundai is a bit of a stretch. The pedal box is real real small, I couldn't get my left foot between the dead pedal and the brake. And the butt support stops way too short, not supportive at all, its not a comfortable driving position.

At this point you might as well tint out the tail lights and black chrome the exhaust....

Agree that the proportions seem off and just ugly. I hate how tall the doors are too. Thumbs on the wheels tho.

Can we get side by side pic of the CLA next to an F01/02?

Not bad, did look like a civic to me at first. Depends on who the driver is. Couldn't see myself in it.

The CLA45 is supposed to be one hell of a sled. Looks-wise, I'm not sure. I'm supposed to be seeing it on Monday and will let you know what I think after that.
