2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250: Nice Air Vents
December 09, 2013
I don't usually wax on about air vents, but the ones in our 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 are noteworthy. There are five of them, and the three in the middle are just about the most prominent feature of the cabin aside from the stand-up navi screen.
They look good, and they feel nicely made when you aim them. And you can shut the flow off entirely if you turn any one of them 90 degrees to the right. A satisfying and well-oiled "click" accompanies that action.
The vanes are styled so they look slightly different when closed, but not so much that it disturbs the symmetry. The middle vent is the one that's closed in the above shot.
So, yeah, no big deal, but well done.
