So i went for another test spin this weekend in the CLA and noticed something I didn't last time. Turbo lag...

I noticed that spooling takes longer than I've become expectant of modern turbo vehicles. The power is certainly plentiful but it feels like the CLA just can't lay it down in any type of linear fashion. Definitely not the smooth constant pull characterized by the rest of the lineup.

However, maybe its not the turbos yet the 7 speed gearbox?

It's the gearbox. Put it in manual, select the gear you want and cruise steadily, then hammer it. Without a kickdown delay it will take off nicely.
