Although I did enjoy and appreciate your review, I think it is a bit unfair to compare the CLA to the CLS where, in the USA, the CLS costs over twice as much as the CLA. You also have to consider the intended buyers of the CLA. It is designed to be relatively affordable so some corners had to be cut. I do agree with you 100% about the Navi/info screen. It just looks like an after thought. I'm hoping that they'll change that in a year or two.

Thank you. I'm glad that you liked the video.
I know that CLA is much more expensive than CLA so I know that some corners had to be cut. I only compare their look a their length and height. Because of CLS's dimensions are much better for coupe shape. :)
Navi/info screen is really bad. :)

I don't think it looks out of proportion at all. If anything the CLS is too long.

And there are more options for rims. Maybe not for the CLA 180 but the 250 does.

The navigation does look out of place from the side. Not a huge deal to me.

The 180 probably wont ever come to north america.

only going to sell in asia and europe.

too underpowered for the NA market.
