Thanks for visiting my blog! Please contact me if you're thinking about purchasing a Mercedes-Benz in the
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG is scheduled for release later this month and it is already winning awards! It was a close race, but Motor Authority has named the CLA45 AMG the Best Performance/Luxury Car to Buy for 2014!
“But most of all, the CLA45 is the kind of car that commutes in comfort, but never fails to inspire a face-splitting grin. It is, quite possibly, the best all-around, attainable, everyday enthusiast car we’ve driven.”
I have one on the way…
Our first 2014 Mercedes-Benz S550s have arrived! I took a bunch of pictures because these are ordered vehicles and will not be on display. We do have our Iridium Silver S550 demo vehicle if you still need to take a look and test drive!
The Nut Brown/Black Nappa Leather is new for this year. It is always hard to describe a color but it is not red, not orange, not dark. I’m going to go with milk chocolate as my descriptor.
The leather dashboard looks great in this car. I think I would go with the Daylight White ambient lighting scheme.
Look at that attention to detail! The steering wheel has Nut Brown contrast stitching!
This is the Silk Beige Nappa Leather interior. Very elegant!
This CLA250 came in the same shipment…I know it isn’t an S-Class but it is still an eye catcher!
Yesterday was my Mercedes-Benz training on the 2014 CLA-Class and the 2014 S550. We’ve had these vehicles at the dealership for a few weeks now and it was great to get some hands on experience with the experts.
Our CLA250 test drive vehicles were equipped with the Drive Kit Plus for iPhones. We were able to use Siri, check in via Facebook, and turn on the internet radio. Our instructor could also use the Family Driver Monitoring from mbrace to make sure we stayed on track!
This is best picture I could get of Northern Lights Violet on a CLA250 that was displayed inside. It is a really pretty, deep eggplant color with a LOT of sparkle. They said it was even prettier in the sunshine and looked black at night.
This is the 10th gernation of S-Class in the United States and it was clear from the training that it is the most advanced vehicle we have ever offered! We spent an hour on the outside, and hour on the inside, watched videos by the designer and still barely covered the basics!
We also had a little fun watching DVDs and enjoying the unbelieveable Burmester sound system! It absolutely fills the car with rich, full sound. It’s hard to image the upgraded system!
Thanks Mercedes-Benz! It was a great day and I look forward to sharing this information with both my new CLA owners and my returning S-Class owners soon!
Here it is! The Very Special Edition 1 CLA250! This one is sold but there is another one on the way!

This may be your only opportunity to see so many CLAs in one place for a while. Our first shipment is gone and based on the amount of test drives we’ve been going on this week these 5 won’t last long! Call me!
It’s here! We sent our personal transporter to the port this morning to pick up our first 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250! He then rushed it back to the dealership so we can have it ready to test drive tomorrow!
We just had a few minutes to check it out before it went into service for an inspection and detail. I am already impressed with the build quality and overall appearance. It looks very expensive!
Call me to set up an appointment for a test drive! I imagine I’ll spend all day tomorrow doing laps in this car!
The 2014 C-Class sedans have been released for sale as of August 20, 2013. The vehicles that are waiting at the port should be shipping to the dealerships soon!
Pricing for the 2014 Mercedes-Benz models is out…for everything except the S-Class. Here you go!
“Through careful and near-obsessive engineering, the team at AMG has produced a turbocharged engine that delivers 177.5 hp per liter and develops full torque from 2250 to 5000 rpm. In practical terms, not only can it deliver a mountain of torque on demand, it can deliver the exact level of torque the driver requires.”
“On the road, the CLA45 feels small and agile — not exactly what we’ve come to expect from Mercedes. While it certainly feels every bit the level of quality we expect of anything with the three-pointed star, it is immediately obvious this car uses a cab-forward, transverse-engine layout. The driving position is near ideal, and the seats and steering wheel are a DTM fan’s dream. Rear headroom is compromised by the sloping roof, but on the upside, the trunk has plenty of space. Road noise is minimal and engine noise is fantastic.”
“The CLA45 may not seem like an ideal track-day weapon, but it was one of the most enjoyable cars I’ve had on the track in a long time. On the road, the mixture of luxury and performance make it a world-class sport sedan.”
Our first 2014 CLA45 is now scheduled for production in early November! We don’t have all of the details yet but I am very excited about the most affordable AMG model. Right now we have it set up to look just like this picture – Cirrus White with Black Dinamica Interior and Red brake calipers. It is not spoken for yet…we can still customize it to your perfect vehicle and have it here before the end of the year!
