Hi all
Getting ready for the CLA45S and managed to get a little info from the dealers. (AUSTRALIA)

Black wheels are STANDARD
Aero is option ($2500+) as are AMG seats ($3000+) (but now with cooling as well as heating). HUD is an option.
No idea about delivery dates but likely Q1 though some dealer specced cars may arrive Late NOV/Mid Dec.
MRLP $108K (not including ORC)
There will be NO CLA45 model , only CLA45S
Standard seats are same seats as in lower model CLAs but in leather.

Ok. Lots of pics with all available colours and Aero vs Non-Aero (NA) look.
Night Black Non-metallic AERO,NA
Cosmos Black Metallic AERO, AERO side, NA
Denim Blue AERO, AERO side, NA

I didn't bother with silver wheels as they are a big weird looking with most of the colours.
But here is red with Silver Type 1 (19x8.5, 245/40)

Silver Type 2 (19x9, 255/35)

Wow... you just changed my mind. I was looking at a new C43 as a replacement for my CLA250 next year, but that Denim Blue 45 S looks amazing. My local MB Stealership quoted me $130,000 on the C43, so at $108,000 this looks to be a better deal with better performance (i'm guessing)

Thats still like 93k us$ geewhiz
Yep, we get hit by the dreaded 'Luxury Car Tax', works on a threshold system, if you buy a vehicle with a value above the threshold, the taxman increases the amount by 33%:

Threshold amounts for LCT FY 2019-2020 Fuel Efficient Vehicles: AUD$75,526, Other Vehicles: AUD$67,525 :(

Good grief ... think we used to have a lux tax and gas guzzler tax
Maybe those are still around

Wow
  1. I love the new car but Mercedes are really pushing Australians with pricing lately
  2. My current CLA45 and it’s outgoing models basically had no options you could say
  3. Now starting price is way higher and you don’t even getting the Recaro seats and what it seems is a longer option list that takes you way into C43 territory
  4. It seems that as what happened with the higher models the well heeled but over weight customers complained about the seats and so Mercedes decided to charge for them not even have as a no cost option
  5. I have no problem if they charged more which they have because of the improvements in the car but would have thought they would have kept and or included especially the seats, HUD and other items as standard😢
