Sounds very similar to the WRX boxer 4 banger which, in my opinion is awesome. It certainly stirs the soul.

Its hard to really tell! You also have to factor in the distortion in the video! Usuallybwith these shots they need wide angle lenses so what u will probably see is a distorted perspective/view! I also have this gripe of the CLA maybe being too small but since im just about 5'6, and i think the tallest of my friends is just 5'11, it makes me quite hopeful about seating comfort/conditions when I have passengers!

The back will be cramped for anyone 6' or taller. That's been well documented, it's a 4-door coupe. When he turned that engine on, I had chills running down my spine.

I'm not overly worried about the back seat, if I have adult passengers in the back it will be rare and my kids are small enough, my main concern is the front seat. I'm 6'4" and I'm willing to bet Wolfgang is a smidge shorter and he looked a bit cramped.

All my friends are either 5'8"-5'10" or 6'5"+... so, that pretty much sums up how/who/where will be transported! :D

Better opt for that passenger roof rack seat option then! :big smile:
Too funny! :D

I'm thinking someone 6'1"+ in the back can be somewhat comfortably seated if the front-seat is kinda/sorta far up allowing for leg/thigh room & slouching. And someone 6'1"+ can be very comfortable in the front if not having to contend w/ positioning the seat for a rear passenger behind them.

I've seen 6'5" drivers comfortably get in/out (and drive) many high-end high-performance sports-cars (not sports-coupes or GTs), based on some seat adjustment/toggling.
