Undoubtedly, the CLA has a more aggressive stance and appealing look. I believe that the C Class needs a major fascia makeover to look more up to date as the CLA does. Doesn't matter to me that the CLA is considered an entry level MB, the notion of owning a MN puts you ahead of others.
awaiting delivery of my cirrus white amg sport with black options but am told that the new c-class will be modelled on the same concept as front of A & CLA class (due in UK mid-2014), can't help but think that it's going to be epic..... possibly even better than the CLA.
regardless, I live in the moment and I want my CLA now!!!!!!!
