Does anyone have a photo of the CLA rear spoiler? Although it's listed as an option, I haven't seen one in any photo.

I may be in the minority, but the CLA trunk decklid looks very aero & spoiler-like as'is to me! Almost seems like adding a lip-spoiler would disrupt the flow & confluence of the design.

Though, if going w/ the Sports Package (AMG front & rear bumper-covers) & an after-market roof spoiler, a low-profile trunk decklid lip-spoiler definitely add to the look.

he he he... funny story short... my uncle said to me the cars needs a pair of Wings to give it the old Cadillac look of the 60's (not lip spoiler but wings/fins on each left/right panel that meets trunk spoler) ...

in the 50-60's a car was built like a car should be!

cars with wings were popular then and with lots of chrome...

can you picture the rear with Wings and or Chrome bumpers? lol
...maybe the car would fly, given top speed at 149!!!

Don't shoot the messenger, and I love the CLA design just as much as the next guy but, you gotta admit, the whole rear end and tail lights have a trace of Toyota Solara in them. Although the Germans pull it off much better in my opinion.

The Solara is just effin hideous and yeah, while the rear of the CLA is its weakest part, design-wise, it's miles better than the Toyota.

The CLA rear quarter/tail-lights have some similarity in-shape/form to the current Infiniti G37 coupe from the back & (pre-refreshed) VW CC from the side.

I'm sure if/when there will be a mid-model-cycle refresh/update for the CLA, MB will be add some diffusers & reflectors to the tail-lights to give them some depth/3D-effect & make them more jewel-like. Typical update-recipe for manufacturers, as well as MB.

Just noticed this thread was started in the wrong forum. Maybe the Admin can move it to the photos/videos forum?
