This car's engine represents exceptional technology. The sound is quite different from the V-8 AMG
CLK55 I had before. Not as deep. This one definitely lets you know it's a turbo....get on boost and it's amazing. No appreciable turbo lag!
AMG performance with 4Matic in an efficient package....I am not disappointed. Brakes, suspension and handling are also exceptional. Took about 7 months after I ordered it for the car to arrive....worth the wait.
Engine, suspension, brakes, 4matic, style. Not a car you see every day.
This car is great to drive and brings a smile to my face every time I start it up.
Yes, the ride is firm and with 355 hp you need to feel that.
But, driving on the autobahn at 140mph you have no issues taking turns.
The performance exhaust sounds like a beast.
Driving in sport mode.
I think the navi screen is cool, like my flat screen mounted on the wall in my home.
Great seats so when you take the turns you don't slide around.
Gas mileage is good when you want to drive with econ mode.
Watch you head when getting into the back seat.
NO one over 6 foot should ever be in the back seats.
The panoramic sun roof lets in heat, so it gets warm in the summer.
Happiness is AMG.
Love this car.
Never had an AMG before, so can't compare it to other AMG's.
Had a BMW M3 (sweet car) and this is better.
(RWD super cars are undriveable in snow.
Unless you get high-performance snow tires--then they are tanks...except that one time when you hit throttle on a wintry turn, rear wheels slide out, plant themselves into a curb and the axle breaks).
But Mercedes has 4matic (which is a technical term
4magic; or "hand of God" if you don't believe in magic).
The CLA45 has 4matic, 4 doors, 355hp and 332 lb ft. Torque.
Performance and practicality in a beautifully fast package.
"One man one engine"
The sound system.
Trunk space with 40/60 split fold-down rear seats.
All the safety features.

They should include "best motorcycle roads" in the Nav, because you'll be looking for them.
