How does everyone feel about the CLA AMG? 355hp 4cyl AMG... Thoughts are appreciated.

I think Mercedes water downed the AMG branding. On the other hand, I like very much that they’ve made some of the sexier options more accessible to everyone. 

I think I’d prefer the C43 coupe or sedan though, in this case.

the cla amg 45 is what i cross shopped for rs3 and i have had a few benzes. Overall the interior was too slapped together for 2019 and the torque was nice but the body roll and brakes were lil worse than the rs3 

 

wonder what u went with by now?

I personally like the cla45 amg. The car drove great, handling was fine and exhaust sound was a nice angry note. The brakes could be better.  The main issue I had with the car was interior styling. You can tell the moment you get in the car that you're in a cheap Mercedes. They swapped most of the nice interior finishes that even the C-class has with basic plastic trim. All and all I would buy for a fun commuter/everyday driver not a fun track/sports car.

I love the new CLA45 I think it’s definitely still got the AMG feeling about it but Mercedes definitely needs to calm down with branding everything with AMG title
