Mercedes-Benz CLA Makes its Much Anticipated Debut in the Streets of Vienna

Last January 19, the Mercedes-Benz CLA made its much awaited debut in the streets of Vienna. Normally, we could only witness the car’s amazing performance around the test tracks. So, according to the press, this was actually the very first time for it to travel in the middle of the normal traffic. We don’t really know why the new Mercedes-Benz was on the streets during that time. Well, we could only assume that it was probably on a test drive. But one thing noticeable with it was the license plate which was registered in Hungary. This only means one thing – that the car is fresh from the Kecskemet plant.


Kate Upton Impressed with the New Mercedes-Benz CLA

Since the news spread about the new CLA ad for Super Bowl, all we have been hearing is the name Kate Upton. One of her commercials for Mercedes-Benz even got 5 million hits from YouTube, much to the chagrin of some Parents’ Group. But here’s a surprising fact – the sexy supermodel does not even own a car. This was revealed during her interview with Vanity Fair after her CLA ads were released. She was quite embarrassed to admit it and she teased that maybe Mercedes-Benz could help her with that. Despite that, she aired her admiration with the new Mercedes-Benz CLA. She said that she found the product very… Continue Reading »


Lewis Hamilton Talks About F1 While Taking The Mercedes-Benz CLA For A Spin

Lewis Hamilton recently became a part of the Mercedes AMG Petronas team following his transfer from McLaren. And on his first day with the Mercedes team at Stuttgart, Hamilton was requested to do a promotional video for the latest Mercedes-Benz CLA. The company indicated that seeing Hamilton driving on the Mercedes-Benz CLA and talking about his career as a Formula 1 driver was better compared to see him lounging in the office. He revealed his being associated with Mercedes since he was around thirteen years old or ever since 1997. He also said that the car was responsive, elegant and classy. Hamilton also said his training started after Christmas as… Continue Reading »


Artist’s Rendering of the Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake

The Mercedes-Benz CLA has just recently entered production, with the Kecskemet, Hungary plant celebrating Job #1, the first CLA unit to be finished. Still, it seems that automotive enthusiasts just can’t help keep wondering about what the future holds for this new compact sedan model. Here’s a rendering for a possible Shooting Brake variant for the CLA, made possible by the skilled hands of one Theophilus Chin. Given that the CLA is actually a bit longer than the C-Class, it won’t be too farfetched to think that the new model will be given an estate version.

Kecskemét Plant Rolls Out Its First Mercedes-Benz CLA

The Kecskemét plant of Mercedes-Benz rolled out the first Mercedes-Benz CLA recently around ten months after the plant was opened.

[Video] Mercedes-Benz CLA Ad: “Untamed”

Mercedes-Benz is really going all-out as far as marketing the new CLA goes. The automaker, via its MercedesBenzTV channel on YouTube, has outed a fresh commercial for the vehicle. We see the familiar action shots of a vehicle isolated across roads and different types of terrain, although here, we get to see a wolf running around as if it were an avatar for the car. The spot highlights some of the qualities of the CLA, such as its ‘dynamic coupe character’ and other key features and technologies of the vehicle. Still, likening the CLA to a wolf and showcasing stuff like BlueEFFICIENCY and Collision Prevention Assist isn’t exactly what most… Continue Reading »


Mercedes-Benz, Luxury Automakers Encroaching on Mass-Market Segments

Mercedes-Benz is among the luxury car manufacturers that are introducing new entry-level models at a previously unprecedented value. The new Mercedes-Benz CLA is a good example of this new trend, seeking to capture a younger market that’s increasingly becoming more willing to spend for luxury brands. With around 75 million slated to be in the 30- to 40-year-old age group in the US, there’s a lot of potential to cut into the market dominated in the past by mass-market manufacturers. Even when you consider that it’s a higher-end model of a mass-market brand versus an entry-level luxury vehicle, it’s easy to see why being able to offer luxury cars at… Continue Reading »
