Ok ladies and gents heres my review of the amazing CLA 45 AMG plus videos and pictures. I posted the pictures and videos on my facebook but made them public so all of you can see them.
Ok so heres basically my review of the comfort, look and feel of the CLA 45 AMG- I'll begin with the steering wheel and slowly progress. If you're debating on whether or not getting the Performance steering wheel for your AMG then this part will save your life. The Performance steering wheel has amazing grip and level of comfort. It's unlike anything I've seen before plus the paddle shifters are located in the perfect position. The steering wheel also includes a Flat bottom and flat top which would greatly help in turns. Therefore I believe that the Performance steering wheel is a must have.
Recaro seats- Most people were worried that these seats might not be comfortable for long rides etc. Good news is that we don't have to worry about these issues. The seats are firm, and extremely supportive for extremely fast turns, but at the same time they are extremely comfortable. I'm a bigger guy at the moment thanks to my knee surgery, but I had more then enough room when sitting in the seats. Also the material that they're made out of in my opinion is top quality. So if you're willing to spend the extra money then I say get them for sure!
ESP settings- Ok so theres 3 ESP settings. On, Sports, and off. ESP on is well I think everyone knows what that is so I won't get into it. ESP Sports has ESP on slightly, but gives you way more freedom, and gives more torque to the rear wheels giving it a slightly rear wheel drive feel. So basically it gives you your freedom but its still there just incase. Now ESP off is where the ESP is fully off. This will give you complete freedom and even more torque to the rear wheels. It also should allow you to perform drifts and possibly power slides if you want to (can't confirm the power slides part)
The screen- Ok so the 5.8" screen was installed in this car since it was the Edition 1 CLA 45 AMG. It's not small, but its not big. I truly must recommend getting the larger screen with navigation though. (Couldn't see any of the writing etc because they didn't turn the car on)
Quality of materials- The quality of the materials wasn't bad but wasn't extremely top notch also. but this can be expected because the car only has a base price in the high 40s. Truly had no issue with the quality though since everything seemed like it belonged in the car
Stop and go or whatever you call it-You can turn this stuff off (Just had to mention it since I'll never use it lol)
Manual, Sports, and conservative modes- Ok so theres 3 modes you can drive in. Manual, Sports, and conservative. In manual mode you drive like any manual automatic out there using your paddle shifters to switch between gears. Sports mode basically makes things more intense and more amazing. You get higher revs, more sound from the beautiful engine and more power. Also increased performance in handling. Conservative is basically comfort but they decided to call it Conservative since you basically just save fuel haha.
Room in the interior- In the front theres tons of room. Truthfully way more room then even a 6'1 person needs. No issue height wise sitting in the front. If you sit in the back and your 6'1 then your heads going to be hitting the ceiling. A 6' person should be fine sitting there I believe as long as there aren't any bumps on the road lol. Leg room in the back I truthfully had no issue with. Was slightly hitting the back of the seat but no issue. I still felt comfortable and all.
Trunk-Tons of room in the trunk. You can fit at least 3 grown man in there lol (The Mafia may now rejoice)
Wheels- The wheels are 235/35 19 Inch wheels by Dunlop
Rims-Saw both the chrome and the matte black rims at the dealership. They look nice and everything but cleaning the brakes might be slightly difficult.
Exhausts- Saw the normal exhausts on the CLA 45 AMG and they look exactly like a CLA 250s exhausts. I also saw the amazing performance exhausts, but didn't hear them. The performance exhausts suit the car extremely well and the tour guide highly recommends them for that AMG sound.
Exterior look- In my opinion the exterior look was simply amazing. The lines on the car showed pure passion and beauty on the car. The Bi Xenon lights had a red accent around them (Don't know if this is exclusive to the Edition 1 only), but that accent fit the car perfectly. The bumper looks sexy, the LEDS give it a aggressive look, the front gives it a extremely don't mess with me look, the back gives it more of a luxurious look, and the logos show people which want to race you just what they're about to race and get owned by. Basically in simple terms the exterior was created with tremendous passion by the engineers in Mercedes/AMG. The car has tons of beauty, sportiness, and it even looks luxurious. Also I'd recommend getting the Night Package because the dark windows in the rear go along with the car perfectly.
Where is it built- Discovered that the engine is built in Kolleda or something like that and the car is assembled in Hungary.
All in all I loved the car, and hope that the Boss will be able to fix things by August 14th so that I don't end up getting a BMW.
