AMG CLA 45 S review - see how quick it REALLY is to 60mph!

  • Julkaistu Vuosi sitten

    carwow

    This is the absolutely gorgeous Mercedes-AMG CLA45 S! Under the skin, it’s effectively an A45 S, including the same 2-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder as found in the hot hatch! It’ll put down 421hp and 500Nm, but if you’re not in the market for the boy racer vibes of the hot hatch, should you choose the CLA? Stick with Mat and find out!

The best thing I have ever done is buy one of these. It puts a smile on my face every time that I get in it. However, it is simply not possible to drive it in comfort to get that MPG 🤣

At least it’s not as fake as on the standard CLA that’s what those exhaust pipes look like and they were totally fake they lead to nowhere

Nice car. But every time when I see the side of the car, it reminds me Chey cruz..The performance of this car would be much better if it can be longer. I am considering to buy it but I don't like the side view and back space of it.

Hey Matt. These newer Mercedes have one big problem with their interior. Seems like designers are not putting enough effort, to me they are just slapping big screens on dash board. Lack of aesthetics!

This car has a "cheap" interior compared to a traditional Mercedes but it has so much raw power. 0 to 60 in 3.9 secs is no joke. A c43 which is about the same price is 4.5 seconds and it has a 3.0L v6. This car has a 2.0L i4. Insane car in terms of speed.

For the price, you could get something much better. You're paying for performance here, not quality. The interior is cheaply made like an entry-level A-class and for £50 k + that's not acceptable. I would rather spend that £50 k on something higher in quality, more reliable, that rides better and is more well made such as an e class coupe amg or a BMW m440i, etc. Seriously, Mercedes should give this model a much-improved interior for that price with a deficiency of plastic materials. Smart people would not buy this car.

Nice, i prefer the looks on this especially the rear lights when compared to the A45s. But then i prefer A45 when it comes pound for pound as it's 40KG lighter.. Canards similar to Mallard..🦆 Could be that what's sending you slightly quackers 🙈??
