I agree it is NOT a baby CLS. It's a sedan version of the A-class hatchback (it also has some B-class in it). The car's looks are somewhat polarizing in my eyes. I like it, but I can see why some would not. I also think, if your benchmark is the CLS, then the CLA drives like a Yugo in comparison. But for an entry level luxury I think it does fine in that regard.
