Very nice commercial. I like the fact it'll be $29,900 in the US, now if only it'll be the same price here in Canada.
Considering there is a 2300 or so difference on the C class...we looking at about 32.5 in Canaduh...which would be about 3k more than B class...makes sense.

I figured 33,900. That's in the middle of the B-Class and the C-Class. Hopefully, we'll find out soon.

je je je... a friend has it and its wonderful for parking in tight situations...
its the american car Ford Focus (resemble Mercedes A class) has it parking backwards and you would think someone is in the car with you doing the parking...

The CLA45 AMG comes on the Spring of 2014.
thank you: i was referring to the AMG Sports Package not the AMG itself... thanks for letting us know about the coming of Spring 2014
me personally, i dont need all that power as i would be tempted to race/speed too much and may get tickets and an accident... lol

Yea, the pricing scheme is a big thing for a launch product. What MB has to be careful about is cannibalizing sales on the C-Class. A friend who is in marketing/pricing tells me he'd be shocked if the top-dressed CLA, aside from the future AMG, comes in at over $40K.

I truely think that cannibalizing C-Class sales will be unavoidable since the C-Class as at the end of it's generation's life cycle thus being sold below MSRP and then the CLA being brand spanking new will no doubt be sold at MSRP ....... meaning the pricing for both will probably smack right in the middle.

I think most folks would opt for the CLA since it's the " new kid on the block " and/or latest , greatest ride. With that said dealerships will without a doubt sell these at MSRP or as someone had mentioned on another thread may even sell them at a premuium ....... it's all about Supply and Demand. Of course if you know your salesman and he's reputable he'd sell at MSRP at most ???

It may be best to actually wait about 6 months once all the hoopla and whatnot dies down then the pricing will come back down to Earth and these will be sold at invoice ??
