2014 CLA250 Atlanta

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!

Motor Trend Reviews the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG!


“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.”

2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG Videos

Mercedes CLA45 AMG

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!

2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 at Atlanta Classic Cars!

size of 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA

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!

Everyone Drives the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class!

launch edition CLA

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.”
