Does anybody know if the CLA250 will come with slightly tinted windows to the USA? I'm not talking pitch black like gangster style, but rather just a very small touch of tint.

I know Audi automatically tints their windows slightly. I don't believe BMW does (at least they don't look it).

Also, while on the subject, what's up with Mercedes adding a blue tint to their windows? I'm not familiar with Mercedes and I passed a C-Class on the road today and the blue color was really noticeable. Although I don't see the blue color on the more recent C-Class cars. So what's the story with that blue tint?

I believe all car windows are tinted to some extent.

Yes, the USA CLA 250 windows have a slight tint. Saw one in person last night at MB of Bellevue. Check out the great collection of photos from AlexG.

I dont know where DavidR is getting his info, But I bought one yesterday at Mercedes Benz of Ft Lauderdale in Florida, and it is NOT tinted.
I am getting it tinted and getting all that silly chrome blacked out on mine as we speak...
I believe the tinting is done by dealers not by MB.
My 335i BMW was the same thing.... did NOT come tinted. As far as I know it's like you said, Joey... only Audi tints their stuff.

Believe me, they are tinted, just not to the extent you prefer. If the windows are not tinted, your air conditioning would be working overtime...

I do remember a few decades ago, tinted window was an option :)
