The Mercedes A Class was a step in right direction with over 90,000 bookings in Europe, making it the most successful product in the automaker’s rich and lengthy history.

The CLA sedan, which is basically the A Class with a boot and a swooping roof line to go with it is also touted to be a grand success.

Like the A Class, the Mercedes CLA Class is based on the MFA platform which will underpin all the front wheel drive cars from Mercedes. The CLA will sit below the C Class to become the new entry level sedan in the German stalwarts portfolio.

By this time you would have figured out that auto enthusiasm to the level of fanaticism is a prerequisite to be a part of team IAB. And I'm no exception! As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! Since then automobiles became the love of my life and I grew up admiring anything and everything that purrs and has wheels. My quest to be updated with whatever happens in the glorious world of automobiles naturally landed me at IAB. So here I'm, as a petrolhead by birth, mechanical engineer by education and an automotive journalist by profession!

    How much powerful and sporty is this car could only be known after through review; but the design of CLA bridges the gap between Merc’s sportscar and luxury car quite neatly.
