I took my R-class for service at Mercedes of Portland (downtown) this morning and the service advisor told me that they got a CLA a week ago. She took me to see it and it's absolutely beautiful.

It is in Mt Gray color with light beige interior, AMG sport package and navi. She said it's a demo car so I assume the dealer will keep it for a while. If you are in Portland, you should go check it out. I will go back there again and ask for a test drive. I will post some pictures later.

I just went back with my wife. Apparently, the car is only there for photo shoot and cannot be test driven. it will be there until 6/20.

The exterior is very handsome and doesn't feel too small. I'd say it's roughly the same size of a C class or an Infiniti G37. The AMG package looks nice and aggressive. The star rim looks nice, too. My wife really likes the Mt Gray color; however, I think it will look even better on white, which is the color that I ordered. Interior is in ash (light gray) which makes the interior brighter (I ordered light beige). The 7" LCD that sits on top of the dash looks OK, not ugly but I think it can do better. One think I am a little bit disappointed is the steering wheel. The bottom is not flat. It's the biggest complaint I have on the car.

On the engine side, although I couldn't test drive the CLA, I have a C250 today as a loaner car. The engine is very responsive and it feels like a 6, instead of a 4 cylinder engine. The CLA250 should have a similar feel. I was thinking between the CLA250 and CLA45. Now I think the 250 is good enough for me.

Great photos. Looking at these helped me to make up my mind on the color choice for my new CLA. I called the dealership in Portland and the sales person was well informed on the car. Car was only for photo opportunity. I received call from my dealer in Palm Springs that my order was being placed and I now have official purchase order number. Vehicle will go into production mid August with estimated delivery date of mid October.

Mt. grey looks like when it is clean. However, it rains 8 months in Portland. Plus I have to park outdoor at work. It's not a practical color for me.
