AMG in Demand

2751 Views 7 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  brianch
demand for an AMG injected CLA is exceeding all expectations, including the ones at Mercedes. Even though the CLA AMG will not officially hit the shopping floor until September, orders have been taken since July and already there is a three-month waiting list for the second-smallest AMG in the lineup. The Hungarian facility currently producing the CLA is having difficulty filling the demand.

I think a large part is that the CLAs lower starting point (base model comes in at roughly $30k MSRP in North America) is attracting buyers from higher segments as well. Mercedes shoppers in the market for a C-Class or current C-Class clients will certainly be enticed by the possibility of more car for similar money.

If you were considering a fully loaded C-Class coming in around $55k (below the C63) or an AMG CLA45 with MSRP starting at $50k which would you choose?

I’d take a shot of AMG every time, how about you?

More like November. The CLA 250 will be available in September. The AMG will be a couple of months later.
My dealer tells me that the AMG version is order-only, and even then it may not be filled.
One of my dealers said they're expecting 20 CLA 250s and one AMG on the floor so for them it is not order only.
