I was looking at the specs for the CLA and took notice to the rather low ground clearance (3.6 in). I am a little concerned as the driveway to my garage is extremely inclined as my house is on a hill. I usually back my car into the garage, but am afraid to do that with the CLA because of the low ground clearance. I believe that once the front wheels are on the cement in the driveway and I continue to back up that the lower portion of the bumper will get scuffed as the car inclines up the hill.

Opinions please!

The car isnt low at all,believe me!
Not lower than another coupe anyway.
Sufficient groundclearance and also the car stays at the same height all the way from front to back.

Greets!

Check out all the photos that AlexG posted over in the two Mountain Grey CLA250 threads in the CLA Pictures/videos section. I have seen the same car in person. Although I didn't measure, the ground clearance on this car is in the "average" range. My eye didn't pick up that it was particularly low to the ground. We are going to need to be careful approaching those cement wheel stops and curbs in parking lots, the front air dam is sticking way out there.
