The Review

Mid-Term Review (1-3 years) Four-Door Coupes Mercedes-Benz CLA CLA Coupe (C117) - (2013) AMG CLA 45 (360 Hp) 4MATIC

Benz do it again!


Summary

This car has amazing performance, not quite sure how AMG and Benz have partnered to achieve 360 BHP in a 2.0, yet they have. This car has all the sounds you would expect in a AMG with improved handling with the 4 wheel drive and dual clutch.

Practicality and Comfort

Very economical when driving in non sports mode. Relatively comfortable, however you do feel the pot wholes.

Very practical however need to be careful of knocking your head when entering the rear doors as slightly sloped roof.

Performance and Handling

Very sturdy around corners, reaches high speeds quickily. Amazing sounds when in sports mode. Lots of popping and crackling. Even more when using paddle shifts

Would I recommend it? YES

Yes its a fun car to have and practical as its a four door with large boot.
