2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250: Is This Acceptable Cost Savings?
March 12, 2014
As we all know, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 doesn't really roll out the dealership doors at that often-quoted "$29,900." Still, there must be signs that this Mercedes-Benz has been built to a price rather than a standard. Do you see it?
There it is. Would you care if the CLA250 has a prop-rod instead of a strut? Do you think most Mercedes drivers would know what that means? Honestly, we imagine most owners of this car will never, ever pop the hood, much less reach for the thingy that keeps it from hitting them in the head. No harm, no foul.
