Need to see pictures showing the rest of the mercedes cla colors, but if i had to choose from the above it would be this white cla sedan:



really not feeling the red/burgundy, maybe silver.

I love the last photo. The panoramic roof looks like it'll be a nice feature. I also love the two raised lines on the hood.

the roudness of the cla's dash reminds me a lot of the mini cooper, sort of a bad thing, the CLA pulls it off nicely but on the Mini it just looks cheap as ever.

I think the Mini has a terrible interior. Looks nothing like the CLA. Unless you consider the round vents and round steering wheel to be a similarity...

The Mini Cooper interior isn't that bad actually. It's suitable for the type of car it is, but can be better. Just glad that the Mercedes CLA being priced almost inline with the Cooper has a much better interior.

The interior designers was smoking some fancy crack. hmm oh lets put a bathroom scale as a speedometer on the dash... FAIL!

hahaha! Never thought about it that way. It does look like a bathroom scale. It's the location of the speedometer that confuses me. Why is it in the middle?

The real (British Leyland) Mini had its speedometer in the centre, but it was about half the diameter of the modern BMW MINI's speedo. So it's a rude attempt at retro design.

LOL @ Bathroom scale. I guess just about anything can inspire an interior feature. I bet this has been brought up on some mini forums.

Thankfully we don't have a bathroom scale for speedo in our CLA's. GOtta love Mercedes for classy designs.

Silver looks amazing.... white is played out in opinion and i think silver is making a comeback.... red looks good in some angles other not so much

FYI the 2nd pic is a e-class

Heres some food for thought. The stand alone gps and monitor for the new mercedes cla.

love the two swooping (LED?) lines in the headlight on the top and bottom. the top LED strip does a good job at pulling the belt line into the headlight and finishing it off at the inner bottom part of the headlight.

I love what Mercedes did here with the led lights, they could have easily copied lexus and the others with the led strip on the bottom of the projector but they did. When pulling up from behind other drivers they wont know what car your driving until you pass them. Its a nice unique touch, not ugly at all.
