For fans of Merc’s all-new baby four-door coupe, things are starting to look up with more videos and images popping up on the internet ever since the official debut at Detroit earlier this week.

You would have seen the previous 1.5 minute clip of the car being driven. This however, is more like a commercial for the car.

Titled as ‘Mind of its own’, the video starts with the CLA being driven on a winding countryside road. The driver of the car is model Karlie Kloss. She stops the car to check out a lone white horse.

The CLA, seeming to take offense, drives off on its own. Kloss tries to chase the ‘offended’ car only to give up after an attempt. The CLA feeling sorry for her, backs up and opens the passenger door and wafts the rightful owner through the scenic roads.

The video is a joint collaboration between photographer Ryan McGinley and director Jefferson Hack.

If this two-and-something minute video does not satisfy your CLA fantasy, you can check out a more detailed 17 minute driving video of the car below.

Now for the folks who haven’t checked out our CLA coverage from NAIAS, here are the headlines. The CLA achieves a very low impressive drag-coeffecient of just 0.22 and Mercedes’ 4-wheel drive 4MATIC system can be specced as well. Mercedes have announced a set of three petrol engines (CLA 180, 200 and 250) and a single diesel engine (CLA 200 CDI).
