Welcome !I am a car ethuisasist and I live in HK. I have just ordered a CLA250 and the delivery will be in July 2014. I don't like Mercedes in general, but I like this CLA.
That's generally only an issue w/ certain demographics, namely the well-healed who would be going w/ A6/E-Class/5-Series. It seems the CLA will allow a new niche of buyers into the MB (and German luxo') realm in the mainland.The back seat might be an issue in China. In China they like big luxury cars, just like Americans, however they like to sit in the back seat and let someone else drive. That's why many Euro makers make extented long versions for the Chinese market.
