Just a matter of time, years by my guess.
If a car so high up like the CLS is getting it now, it's going to be a while before it trickles down to an entry-level vehicle like the CLA.

Never is the answer. This is a slushbox designed for RWD cars. The 7 speed dual clutch automated manual is it for the CLA.

i cant imagine how they could stuff 9 gears into a FWD transmission., then again they put 7 in there.. so maybe time will tell..

Just imagine how low RPM's will be from gear to gear with normal driving with a 9 speed transmission, crazy, Talk about fuel efficiency.

I wonder if it helps with adding less stress to the trnamission with so many gears.
Tough to say, it's more working parts, but with more gears and less RPM's required to get the car up to speed, it would put less stress on the engine over time and on your wallet of course.
