Its awesome that 4-cylinders can keep up with a V8 now. Shows how far technology has come. That also makes the CLA far more fuel efficient. Great that there doesn't have to be sacrifice for fuel efficiency.

Can ALMOST keep up. Not to take anything away from the fantastic turbo 4 in the AMG but it didn't quite keep up.... but close.

Someone reported turbo lag with the CLA, so maybe it had that at the time? If it did, i would like to see how it runs with little to no turbo lag.
