I'm just curious which you guys are eyeing and will buy. I would love the 45 AMG but I can only afford the 250. I'm thinking most CLA buyers are in the same boat as me.

I think this time around I will be just getting the CLA 250 considering how much CLA AMG 45 will be upwards of $40k+ and even then with all the options I want it just gets up there. A CLA 250 with every option I want would make more sense financially.

I will be getting the CLA 45 AMG, for the price and the performance your getting I think its affordable. Especially an AMG from mercedes at that price.

I wanted to get the CLA45 AMG but within the past few months I was made aware of an Audi S3 performance sedan and BMW M2/2M performance sedan, all direct competition to the CLA45 AMG. Since im not all that loyal to the Mercedes brand, I'll be waiting it out to see which compact performance sedan is the better one.

So far, the CLA beats the Audi A3 sedan and 2-series in exterior design.

I think it will be more of a battle between the CLA and 2 series. Not too much of a fan for the S3 sedan, I like the wagon but it seems like the style doesn't ever change along with the boring interior.

Don't underestimate Audi they are in a tough battle here and I think they will be bringing out their big guns to this battle. This brand new segment has a huge potential to sell in volume.Mainly because of the pricing of all three it'll be tough to see who comes up on the top. i have my faith in the CLA 45 AMG.

Same here. I'm waiting for Audi and BMW to come out with their answer to the CLA45 AMG. As I mentioned before I'm in no rush. Having buyer's remorse on a $50K purchase is very hard to swallow. I'm also consideirng the Acura TL SH-AWD and the Lexus GS-350 which are already out. I can't wait for MB, Audi, and BMW to come out with their so I can take a day to just go test driving. What I like about the Acura is I can get it with a manual transmission.

My deposit is on the AMG. If it is as good as, (it doesn't have to be better than) my Dinan tuned Bimmer 335 coupe with 400 hp and 400 ft//lbs. I'll get it. My fear is that it may be too much of a 'wanna be' race car.

Keep us posted on your 45AMG. Try to find out when exactly you'll be able to take delivery of it. I know people in the U.S. are suppose to get their's by Fall 2013, not sure what it's like for Canada though.
What do you think trade in will be like for your GTI?

Well, the CLA45 AMG will have 355 hp so right there it won't be as "good" as your Bimmer. The torque falls short, too.

Don't think it will be a wanna be race car.

There are much better examples of wanna be race cars out there :)

At least the 45 AMG makes good power. It looks nice and the interior is nice.


The TL and GS350 will be very different cars vs the CLA.

The BMW competitor will be the new 2 series M. 2M or M2 or whatever it will be called.
