Hypebeast Takes the New 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA for a Test Drive


Looking to appeal to a younger audience as well as to get the next generation of car buyers familiar with Mercedes-Benz engineering, the German car manufacturer introduced its newest compact-sedan the CLA. After hearing a lot of talk about the vehicle due to its promised performance at a substantially lower price point, we were curious to see if the car in person would live up to its expectations -- so imagine our excitement when Mercedes-Benz invited us for a test drive. Taking place in Saint-Tropez, France, we were given a break down of the Mercedes-Benz CLA's features from a few members of the car's development team -- features such as the newly developed 'eyebrow' daytime running lights, bold grille design, 208 hp turbocharged engine and body aerodynamics which give the vehicle a drag coefficient of 0.23 -- then put the car to work through a series of winding roads, followed by straights in the picturesque countryside.

Eyebrow daytime running lights are a unique feature, while every car maker is copying audi and adding LED strips to the bottom of headlights, Mercedes has added it in a very unique way.

Driving in front of a CLA and looking back at it through the rear view mirror it will look intimidating!

I was hoping to hear more of a review and testimonial about the handling of the CLA. In this video It was nice to see in running in different angles. As for the light Mercedes went original and made something completely different as opposing to copying Audi.
