    The R35 GTR was a game changer when it was released with a $70k pricetag.
    The C7 ZO6 will be a game changer with it's ZO6 pricetag.
    But, a $50k WRX STI from Mercedes is a joke.
    We all know Mercedes are all about performance per dollar.

    If you're not about "performance per dollar", you're an idiot.

    The ONLY reason I am considering a Mercedes is the unique combination of low profile exterior, power to weight ratio, AWD, and DCT that I was told the next C63 would offer.
    If not, I would prefer something domestic or japanese like my Corvettes and sportbikes.

    The CLA45 doesn't deserve to have a AMG label, let alone 66% mark up over the base CLA.

    If the shoe fits, wear it.
    The C7 ZO6 is going to humiliate many overpriced euro wagons, just like the C6 did.

    I respect the 2014 E63, especially when tuned, but I'm not impressed with the cars you leg hump.

    It most certainly deserves an AMG badge and it has an incredible AMG built motor. So, um, yeah.

    Oh the next generation Corvette Z06 is going to out perform some AMG sedans? You should have puts spoiler tags on your post.

    I respect the 6.2L and the M157.

    But, the M133 is PATHETIC.
    If AMG launched a 1.0L engine that made 200HP in a 4,000lb sports sedan, would you rave about it just because it was 1.0L ????

    Your MB leg humping is embarrassing.

    What-if's! So much fun. The thing is they don't have a 1.0 liter performance engine. They have a performance four-cylinder along with many other manufacturers so they are competing in a segment that actually exists. They just happen to have the best engine the segment. That's pathetic?

    What's embarrassing is your ignorance. If you don't like the motor or the car feel free to ignore it. Mercedes performance sites are going to discuss Mercedes performance motors of all shapes and sizes so your argument is invalid by default.

    I don't here any talk of the Chevy Cruz or Spark or whetever $hitboxes they make on my GM performance sites.
    If you want to post about the CLA45, be my guest.
    But, be prepared to have educated people call it out for what it is: a ridiculously overpriced WRX STI with a star in the grill.
    And, I'll admit, maybe I should leave my response to that one sentence and ignore your replies so we don't go back and forth for 2 pages.


    Let's hope the next C63 lives up to the hype so we all have something to agree on.

    That makes sense. The Chevy Cruz and the CLA45 AMG are direct competitors and basically in the same segment offering similar performance.

    You mean the most affordable AMG offering the world's most powerful four-cylinder motor with all wheel drive and a dual clutch with the STI, EVO, and anyone else does not match?

    AMG hit a home run. Appreciate that they offer cars for different segments whether it be large displacement top end or small displacement entry level. You act like they choose to produce this over the M157.

    Be prepared to have educated enthusiasts here who appreciate all cars.

    I agree on all the points accept that the word "affordable" should NEVER be in the same sentence as the CLA45.
    The $50k pricetag makes the CLA45 f@cking ridiculous.

    I will try to end this dance with this point.
    The CLA45 would have made sense with a $30k base price.
    $50k and a AMG label are both ridiculous for this car.

    You want a mid 12 second car with a dual clutch, offering modern emissions, all wheel drive, and Mercedes interior/exterior for $30k? Yeah so does everyone.

    I'd like a Dodge Viper for $50k.

    No, I said the CLA45 should have been the CLA250, and the CLA250 should have never been made, because they both cost basically the same for MB to produce.
    The 66% mark up for the 45 over the 250 is insane.
    The S4 is a much better buy for $50k.
    I stand by my comments.

    You obviously haven't spent much time driving Vipers.
    I have.
    I won't want one......PERIOD.
    I'd rather have a $52k Corvette.

    Oh you even know MB's investment in all wheel drive and the M133 itself. That's amazing. You know better than they do apparently.

    Then what's the SLS Black Series markup? Or C63 Black Series markup? Or C63 markup over the C250 for that matter?

    Record AMG sales numbers? No thanks to that overpriced stinkin' CLA45 AMG?

    I mean, I'm not trying to call anybody out or anything (yes you are, $#@!) Click here to enlarge, but I'm just sayin'..............and clearly having too much fun: Click here to enlarge

    (Source: http://www.motorauthority.com/news/1...s-car-for-2014)

    It isn’t just the major automakers churning out record sales figures for 2013; today, Mercedes-Benz tuner AMG announced that it sold a record 32,000 vehicles in the past year, up from roughly 24,500 sold in 2012. The gains were brought about by new compact offerings as well as the availability of all-wheel drive on more models.

    “We are looking back on the company’s strongest year ever,” AMG boss Tobias Moers said in a statement. “This extraordinary growth has exceeded even our own expectations.”

    Moers is right as AMG as recently as a year ago was forecasting annual sales of 30,000 units by only 2017. It’s clear the company underestimated the popularity of new products, like, for example, the CLA45 AMG, which was voted Motor Authority’s Best Car To Buy 2014 along with the Porsche Cayman.

    (Editor: Do my eyes deceive me........along with the bloody Cayman? That piece-a-crap AMG 4-banger? Chile please.)

    Availability of all-wheel drive also proved a hit: around 90 percent of E63 AMGs sold in 2013 were fitted with 4MATIC technology.
    Key markets for AMG were the U.S., the U.K, and Germany, with sales for each during the past year up 20 percent, 40 percent and 10 percent on the previous year, respectively.

    With a new GLA45 AMG hitting showrooms later this year and other models such as the CLA45 AMG and new S-Class AMG variants set to record full-year results this year, 2014 is shaping up to be an even better year for AMG.

    (Editor: UH-OH! Don't look good.)

    Oh, and there will also be a new sports car to replace the SLS AMG, which bows out of the market this year and managed to rack up over 10,000 sales since its introduction in 2010. The new sports car, rumored to be called an AMG GT, has been confirmed for launch later this year.

    Read it & weep. And don't get mad a me, homie!! That's the market, dawg. The consumer has spoken.

    I'm starting to wonder how much you know about cars period with your absurd statements.

    The 4.0 engine wasn't good enough but now you had to back off that ridiculous bull$#@! once you saw the Audi 4.0 TFSI smacking the M157 around.

    Then you stated the S6 is the E63 competitor which is absolutely insane.

    Now you are talking down on the most affordable AMG in the lineup because you think the CLA250 shouldn't exist despite it selling like hotcakes. You essentially want $50k+ of technology for free. It's insane.

    Seriously, your points are absurd and you just don't even know what you're saying. It's the same old crap 'blah blah it should ahve 9.0 liters and it should cost X.' Mercedes knows what they are doing better than you do.

    And this car is awesome and responsible for Mercedes finishing in first place so... yeah, yawn.

    Dude...........you ain't never lied. Was at the dealership getting a wash last weekend, and as usual going around to check out the showroom floor while they work.

    Then after I get done drooling over the white E63 Estate on the floor I see this ML looking like it's also sittin kinda low, as I'd noticed with the E63 (the first current generation model I'd ever seen in person; noticeably lower, to my surprise).

    I'm like, what the....? Lo and behold it's a damn - needless to say - ML63 AMG. So if you know House Rules, you know HR #1 1993 :


    • When the lady of the house goes shopping, she must do so in class, style, and elegance.

    Well, Sticky, the GLA45 will be yet another mommy-mobile for the all the good men amongst us to get for the (literal or figurative) wife - family budget permitting, of course.

    The GLA45 is maybe for younger moms with no kids or smaller kids, that is, before they grow into the family needing an ML63 or GL63. Or even for younger moms with no significant other, but it don't matter. Younger, older, that's the rule.

    'Cause if momma aint happy, NOBODY'S HAPPY!!, which we all know is House Rule #1 ...............except for the knuckleheads. (Not calling any names.Click here to enlarge So don't anybody get their panties in a bunch.)

    He gone!

    Honestly I'd take the GLA45 over the ML63. You have a lighter car that handles better and is almost half the price. Not to mention it has a dual clutch transmission and will just be way more fun to drive.

    Oh, but wait, obviously the GLA45 sucks because it doesn't have a 5.5 liter motor despite the fact it will run circles around the ML and match it in acceleration with less than half the displacement.

    Yep, junk.

    The Gla45 amg would defiantly be my snow car/ grocery getter. That would be a car i'd be comfortable with leaving in a parking lot. Unlike a Viper, Mclaren, SLS or any other high end two door exotic.
