Mercedes CLA Production Increased on Hot Demand
Apr 09, 2014 - 4:32 PM - by AG Jeff


If you thought the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class wouldn’t be a success, think again.


The German automaker has released a short statement announcing that production on the CLA-Class would be getting a boost in order to meet worldwide demand. According to Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche, production of the CLA “has hardly kept up with the dynamic sales development of our compacts.” Production will be boosted at the automaker’s plant in Hungary with the Mercedes-Benz Kecskemet plant adding a third shift starting in May.

Mercedes has seen 4,404 units of its CLA-Class move in the U.S. through February and reiterated that its compact car plants are ready to “operate at full steam.” The CLA is available in two models: CLA 250 and CLA 45 AMG. The compact sedan starts from $30,825 while the CLA 45 AMG with the world’s most powerful four-cylinder engine (355 hp, 332 lb-ft of torque) has a starting price tag of $48,375.

CLA45 vs Everything
Apr 04, 2014 - 3:44 PM - by booker
Today I decided to have a bit of fun with the CLA45's MSRP. So I figure most of you 45 guys went in on the CLA because it pulls like a cat on ketamine, is handsomely hewn and is a bit more grown up than other options to be found at the bottom of cereal boxes.

First things first I wondered $47K could net you on the used market performance wise. At the risk of muddying your mind I will preface by saying if you were expecting science this is not it, it was a serendipitous idea that came about while tooling through KBB. So all prices are according to KBB...

e90/e92 M3: $32-37,000


CTS-V Wagon: $40-43,000


09/10 C6 Corvette Z06: $38-48,000


'10 Porsche 911: $44-48,000


'11 Mercedes S550: $46-49,000


Thats just a small sample obviously, but clearly there is an interesting medley of used metal, that is if you dont mind someone elses cup of tea. However for those of you second hand averse, no fear I looked at new vehicles as well.

2015 WRX STI: $34,495


2014 Lancer EVO: $34,995


2014 335xi: $45,400


2014 Mustang GT Premium: $35,310


2014 Corvette C7: $53,000


2014 Chevrolet SS: $43,475


2014 Audi S4: $48,100


So I'm just curious with that kind of choice available how come the CLA45 stands out?

2015 Mercedes S63 AMG Coupe Revealed With 577 HP
Mar 19, 2014 - 2:48 PM - by AG Jeff


Mercedes just unveiled the fastest and most exclusive version of its new flagship ahead of its official New York Auto Show debut.


The 2015 S 63 AMG will arrive in a climate controlled garage (possibly) near you later this fall. It will arrive exclusively as an all-wheel drive model with a 5.5-liter biturbo V8 sending 577 hp and 644 lb-ft of torque to all four wheels all the time. The system sends 33 percent of the engine’s torque to the front and 67 percent to the back half, allowing for better year-round driving and a sprint to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds.

Early adopters will have a crack at buying an even more exclusive Edition 1 model that – like the normal S-Class coupe – comes with Swarovski crystals in the headlights and matte grey paint.

Regardless of whether or not you get one of those, the obligatory AMG body enhancements are in place. A bolder grille, bigger air ducts and a front splitter all enhance the car’s look an performance functionality. Optional 10-spoke forged light-alloy wheels help achieve a total weight savings of up to 140 lbs compared to the CL 63 AMG model being replaced. Still, she’s a heavy beast with a curb weight of 4,400 lbs. Thankfully, Mercedes is offering optional ceramic high-performance composite brakes to help reduce brake fade and stopping distances at high speeds.

The AMG “Speedshift” seven-speed transmission offers three driving modes: controlled efficiency (for comfortable cruising), sport (meant for playing rugby), and manual (meant for knowing better than the car when it is appropriate to shift). A start-stop engine feature to save fuel is also standard on all models.

In controlled efficiency mode, special exhaust flaps remain closed more often to modulate noise coming from the force-fed V8. Press sport mode and those flaps fly open to make noise more readily.

Mercedes expects the new model to be more efficient, but hasn’t released fuel consumption figures at this time.

The car rides on an air suspension, but the front and rear axles have both been revised for improved agility. Pricing hasn’t been announced yet, but the 2014 CL63 AMG it replaces carries a starting price of $154,600.

Mercedes CLA To India
Jan 30, 2014 - 9:56 AM - by booker
growth, growth and more growth! Mercedes India is kicking out the jams and don't intend to stop anytime soon. They have 10 launches of either new cars or new derivatives planned for 2014 alone, one of them is the CLA.



To facilitate the CLA's move into India they're scaling up their 100 acre Chakan manufacturing facility, adding a new assembly line for MFA vehicles. Which would also indicate the GLA will be making the migration into India as well. The new line should be operational by 2Q 2014, and will begin with the diminutive B class and the A class hatchback with the CLA going on sale there before the end of the year, likely 3Q 2014.

As for pricing Mercedes India is expected to peg the CLA between 25-35 Lakh which translates to between $36 and $39,000 USD. Its confirmed they will be getting the CLA45 as well but that won't be happening until 2015. They should be getting the full range of power plants from CLA180 all the way through the CLA 250.
