2014 Mercedes CLA Revealed With Premium Style, Budget Price
Mercedes-Benz revealed a brand-new compact car on the eve of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The CLA-Class is the company’s latest effort to attract younger buyers to the brand.
This car is a little smaller than the C-Class, a staple of the Mercedes lineup. With a projected starting price of around $30,000 it’s also expected to cost a little less than its stablemate — about five grand less.
I love the way the car looks but I worry about the price point. If they could get an entry level of 27,500 it would sell out! At $30,000 PLUS options you're looking at an out the door price of at least $35,000 and that will be a problem for the 20 somethings they're trying for.
