2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA

This 4-door compact luxury sedan was formally presented in 2013 North American International Auto Show. It was designed by Mark Fetherston and Robert Lesnik and it hugely influenced by 2012 Concept Style Coupe, which was shown one year earlier. Since this model is present for only one year, it seems logical that 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA won’t be too much different compared to original model. After one year of exist, impressions about its look are still very different. One the one side, there are those who thinks that new model looks just amazing, while on the other there are mass of fans who thinks that CLA is not on the same level as other models from German manufacturer and that it even look pretty “cartoonish” in some way. All this seems logical because this is a whole new idea and its goal is to attract some new type of customers, especially young drivers, so it isn’t surprise that “traditional” customers are not so impressed with new model.
