Thanks for visiting my blog! Please contact me if you're thinking about purchasing a Mercedes-Benz in the
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!
I never really thought of myself as an AMG driver. Obviously they are amazing vehicles and I love to drive them on the track…I just couldn’t envision myself needing that much power on a daily basis. However, the CLA45 AMG seems to be calling my name! That is a LOT of look and a LOT of power for not a lot of money. It will arrive stateside later this year…I might be ready for an upgrade by then!
Check out these videos and let me know if you need to pre-order!
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG is scheduled to arrive about a month after the 2014 CLA250 this fall. This will be the most affordable AMG vehicle ever released and is sure to be a winner! The base price is estimated at $47,470 and includes all of the engineering brilliance you would expect from an AMG product. The order banks are open!
Here it is! The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 has arrived at Atlanta Classic Cars!
Ok, so it isn’t a real CLA-Class. This is our new life-size display CLA-Class in Jupiter Red! I was hoping it would help prospective owners visualize the dimensions so we can place early orders.
Come by and take a look!
Mercedes-Benz hosted a press test drive event for the all-new 2014 CLA-Class. It looks like everyone loves the looks, quality and sportiness of our new car! Here is a round up on the test drive reviews – click the link for the full review! Test drive for yourself in September!
Autoweek says: “…this entry-level Benz makes no compromises and no excuses.”
Autoblog says: “This is a good and solid baby Mercedes sedan with above average build quality, great ambitions, and fresh looks that fit the established brand image worldwide.” Tons of great pictures here too!
Edmunds says: “the CLA is a uniquely styled sedan that attracts attention even before people know what it is. Not many of the competitors in this price range can do the same. Add in the sharp interior and solid performance and the CLA is an interesting option at its price point.”
Car and Driver Says: “The CLA250 might be the most humble U.S.-market Mercedes in some time, but it follows squarely in the CLS’s footsteps in injecting fashionable design where conservative and derivative are the norm.”
MotorTrend says: “…everything you see, hear, touch, or feel has been tailored to the standards of the Mercedes lineup.”
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class is due to arrive in September as the CLA250. The CLA250 4matic and CLA45 AMG will follow soon after! You may already have heard a little bit about this vehicle through the Super Bowl commercial, social media presence and dozens of articles! It has been the most researched car at Edmunds.com this week…and it doesn’t even exist yet!
