As tested $58,945. I like the idea of the CLA as being an affordable Mercedes to draw in a younger crowd starting with a base price of just under $30,000. The problem here is if your going to spend that kind of money would you buy a small 4 door 4 cylinder? Granted the 4 cylinder is remarkable but as some members and critics on MB facebook have stated some of the quality and refinement does not feel like it should on a Mercedes. I am uncertain that there will be much demand for the CLA 45 AMG as its outside of the budget of younger buyers and those who want that kind of power might simply look elsewhere for the pure sports car feel. I think they priced it into such a minor market niche its going to end up being pointless. On the bright side it may end up being a collectible later on.
