2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250: A Lawnmower Fits
July 22, 2014
But just barely. It's just a smallish electric mower, not a bulky gas cutter. It should fit, I thought, in the smallish 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250.
And it did, but not without some creative wiggling, shimmying and a swift kick.
There was no way it was going in the trunk. The box measured 31" (L) x 23" (W) x 17" (H), way too wide to fit through the CLA's trunk aperture. And while the rear opening was wide enough, the bulky door panel, limited open angle and the box's awkward dimensions didn't make it easy.
And now I have to actually cut the grass. By the way, do you think Elon Musk's gardeners use electric lawn equipment? Be kinda crazy if they don't.
