1. It's either the optional panoramic roof or NO sunroof. That has been stated many times.Sun roofs take up headroom. Since almost no one in the US has actually had a good look at the car, it is possible that Merc hasn't moved the interior ceiling up to take advantage of the space, but I doubt it. That said, I thought that all US cars included sun roof, just not the "Panorama" style.
I'm quite tall (6"6) and have sat in two CLA's, one with and one without the pano roof over at Mercedes Benz' HQ, here in Brussels. FWIW: I dont know 100% sure whether or not it was the pano roof or perhaps different seats, but I do know that my head scraped the pano roof and did not do that in the version without. With that in mind, I figured that the pano roof does indeed take up some space (although the local sales guy did indeed deny that) and I went for the version without.3. Interestingly, the spec sheet someone posted here shows the pano roof actually adds a quarter inch to head room for the front seat passenger and driver. It opens outwards so it shouldn't encroach on the inside headroom anyway.
Every car I had the past 20 years had a sunroof except the M3. When I lived in San Francisco, the roof was left open all the time.if i know i won't be using the sunroof that often or in fact never use it.
but i just like the look of it. should i still get it? lol
Just wait three more weeks and you can buy one right off the showroom. There will be some cars reserved ( ordered) but I am sure there will be free cars you can just purchase.haha yea, i guess in California, i have no choice.
and by the way outsider, i am sure that i want the CLA now. should i goto the dealers and place order now?
or should i wait till it's released and see what the dealers have in stock?
i am still confused haha..
On a white or silver car, the heavily tinted panoramic roof will give the car a two tone look whether you like it or not while it won't affect a dark color cars the same way.Who would have guessed that the sunroof topic would have gotten such a response? Interestingly enough, my M3 is, also, the only car I have had in years w/o one. Since many M3 owners track their cars, the "ceiling" was raised to roof height when the sunroof was not installed. That left a lot of extra room for a crash helmet; it also reduced high weight somewhat. It seems to me that 'luxo' carmakers think that the cars are not 'luxo' enough with out them.
I think they are ugly, and break up the lines of the car. Even though I live in California, I haven't grown eyes on the top of my head, so I can't look out of the sunroof.
Happily, now that I know that it has been well documented that no 'pano' sunroof means no sunroof, my xxx4 will have a 'clean' roof line.
So harsh!On a white or silver car, the heavily tinted panoramic roof will give the car a two tone look whether you like it or not while it won't affect a dark color cars the same way.
Notice the official MB CLA45 white car doesn't have a roof. I have it on my order. But it is a personal thing. May compliment the night styling package with the blacked out trims.
