wow, it does look pretty spectacular in Mountain Grey. Man i hope the drive and refinement are up to speed; all the European reviews have really not liked the CLA at all :(. Lets hope the North American market version does much better.

I found the best car review (in my opinion) a couple months ago. I feel like this guy just gives it honestly.

Here's the link:

Whereas this video posted in this topic is fantastic and I think makes the mountain gray look AMAZING!! It only is selling the car, to me. No real brutal review. Lol

i was really excited when i watched that review, but then a few days back i read a really scathing review in WhatCar magazine, which is based in the UK..and they really really trashed the car. It was awful...i was dumbfounded :(. The review i am talking about can be viewed here: http://email.listersgroup.co.uk/audi/What_Car_group_test_October_2013.pdf . I dont know how biased or unbiased this publication is, but other reviews in Europe have said the same thing, so thats why i am waiting a bit to see the US market reviews of the car.

Someone in another thread mentioned that review and said (flippantly?) that that magazine was biased towards the other side. Haha

it may well be, but other reviews in Europe have said similar things...so i dont know, i mean if we drive it and like it, then who cares what they think lol. Mercedes may have made improvements for the US market cars, so only magazine tests here and our own test drives will be able to judge that.

This is the first time I have seen this review: http://email.listersgroup.co.uk/audi/What_Car_group_test_October_2013.pdf Thanks for posting it. I'm not sure if it is another nail in the coffin, but this (and other neutral/negative reviews) will certainly make me look harder. I have said it elsewhere, but I don't think anyone here wants to marry an 18 year old beauty queen or male model with bad breath and other hidden deformities.

The best thing to do would be test drive the car if you have any doubts. I have now had the car approximately two weeks and I cannot fault it. The other encouraging point to note is that the majority of European/UK owners signed up to this forum who already have the car have provided positive comments about the car. Don't think I have seen many negative comments about the car.

I have had my CLA 220 AMG sport for about two and a half months now and can report that the car is amazing. I have had a lot of different cars in my time driving and this one is great apart from the rubbish Comand not on line system. I call it that because it does not work with the iPhone. Cars built from June 2013 have the updated system and work with the iPhone 4 and 4S.

So far a fab car, fuel economy is well over UK 50 mpg driven hard and up to 61 on long trips. Performance in sport mode is not bad either.

All in all a great car in my opinion.

What do you mean it doesn't work with iPhones? If you have iPhone 4 or 4s, it should just work. If you have the 5, adding the Apple Lightning to 30-pin adapter should do it.
