What's /o/'s take on FWD Mercs?
>>
The CLA is a rolling piece of garbage for retards that want a cheap, new tri-star and don't care about anything other than the logo.
>>
Me? Meh, they've got to increase sales on way or the other, and using a generalized platform to produce a "cheap" car that normies will fancy because of
>muh luxury brand

/o/'s opinion? Utter disdain
>>
My opinion is that nowadays too many brands try to serve too many submarkets. The world doesn't need Mercedes compacts, Lamborghini SUVs, Ford supercars or Honda and Toyota pickup trucks just for Americans.
>>

proportions are all wrong
>>
>>14210090
>what are emissions/mpg regulations

Not saying there aren't needlessly marketed vehicles these days, but there's a reason for the Aston Martin Cygnet.
>>
In Europe they are just normal cars

If owner by a Turk, they are for poor people who want to impress their equally poor friends with a German Honda Civic

If American, even more so.

Its for poor people with an inferiority complex. This car is an indicator of genuine behavioral disorders.

It's actually garbage, and pic related is from a top of the line AMG model that cost well over $45k
>>
>>14210064
Looks like shit on the outside, looks shittier on the inside. Expensive, Renault engine, horrible back seat. The Audi A3 is a much nicer choice.
>>
>>14210064
Shitty car for badgewhores. Same with the A3. What's wrong with the gti or golf r?
>>
>>14210611
But with Audi you atleast get a better quality feel. Better feel in the buttons and knobs.
>>
>>14210611
Also, what's wrong with Seat? Quite a lot cheaper than VW.
>>
>>14210627
We don't have those in the US
>>
>>14210621
The only nice thing about the A3 is the sexy brown leather interior. Switchgear is the same as vw.
>>
>>14210640
It's not. The volumeknob in the stereo is much nicer on the Audi than the Golf. You can get the Golf with brown leather as well.

Skoda Octavia then? Best Price/Quality ratio.
>>
I've driven the CLA250. It's nice. The interior quality IS pretty great. It makes a fuckton of low end torque, maybe it's the gearing, but it's like diesel-status of RPM revs. At 75mph, it's barely hovering 2,000 RPM.
>>
It's a.cheapo car tarnished as a Mercedes. Girls fall for it.
>>
Thank goodness, glad to see people switching over to FWD.

FWD is the king of performance, economy, and all-around the best bang for your buck.

That's every what every German manufacturer does it seems
>>
>>14210064
That's not a Mercury
>>
>>14211214
I read somewhere that it was actually cheaper getting higher trim Carreras than speccing out lower trim ones because the S' come with more features standard

But who the fuck needs leather wrapped vent slits?
>>
>>14211211
They did. It just isn't available in the US because you guys don't buy estates.

>>14210064
I'd drive one if I got it as a company car, I guess, but they do absolutely nothing for me. Then again, nor does the vast majority of Mercedes' current lineup, teebeeaych.
>>
The CLA is a poser car. It doesn't have good performance or handling and it doesn't have the luxury features a Mercedes should have. It exists solely so that Mercedes can milk money from badgewhores.
>>
>>14211479
>They did.
hnnng thats sexy.
>>
>>14211583
I look at it and think it looks like some sort of Lexus RX chop-and-drop job.

But I still like it.

>confirmed for never driving RWD on a track
FWD is fine for commuter cars but RWD feels so much better in corners usually.
>>
>>14210064
They are barely a step above Volkswagen in every way except price.
Meanwhile the C and E class are pretty much the best cars in their markets.
>>
>>14211643

Nah bro, a civic is much lighter and more agile around the corners due to the better grip potential of front wheelers. Oversteer will slow you down, meanwhile a civic with a rear sway bar would have a much more neutral position and allow for less meaningless skids and unintentional drifting shenanigans.
>>
>>14212165
I just... learned these are FWD. Always thought it's just C-class badged differently. So we (would) pay for aluminium buttons, onboard gadgets, stylish look and badge? Daamn.
>>
>>14212293
Nowhere near a C-Class... built on the same platform as the A-Class and GLA
>>
I thought "objectively bad looking" was just a meme till I saw this
