The CLA Killer....

....Maybe, if you can wait...



BMW 2 Series GC, RWD, available 6 cyl TT.... Quite in love with its long snout, short deck. Evens out the 2 series coupe bubble greenhouse into something proportioned and elegant. Not sure when its coming, but I want to see it before I make a move...

Seems good, but honestly, the look of the CLA, especially the Edition 1 version, is far better in my humble opinion.

exactly the CLA is because of its price. The BMW is because its a car... No offical word yet on pricing, I'm betting under $40 like the rest of the 2 series lineup...

Theres much compromised on the CLA to get it under $30k ( and barely under) I'm willing to pay more money for more car...

The only 2 series thats attractive to me is the M235i.

Too bad its way out of my price range

Aside from the RWD platform, I struggle to see the appeal in this 2-Series, compared to a CLA.

I don't find it as attractive as make it out to be. It doesn't look like they had to do much work in order to achieve the so called gran coupe styling. Well to be honest the 1 series never appealed to me anyways, so with just a slight change in headlights and tail lights won't do much.

I doubt the 2 series gran coupe will look that ugly.

Probably just a mini version of this 4 series gran coupe:

Well, not to mention that the BMW probably comes with an engine, a frame, and not much else. Every BMW I've ever owned and driven has been expensive on add-ons, nothing came with it, everything was an extra. I felt like I was ordering a meal and then being brought bread. Oh, you wanted an appetizer? Sure.. oh, you wanted a fork? No problem. Wait wait you wanted a PLATE? sure.

In any event, it's a nice car, but I bet someone pricing both out would stack'em up together and find the BMW to be a lot more expensive for the same features.
