    M133 shows its four cylinder muscle - Stock CLA45 AMG on the drag strip runs a 12.6@108.8 1/4 mile

    The CLA45 AMG and the new M133 2.0 liter four-cylinder just continue to impress. Mid 12's from a factory 2.0 liter turbocharged motor with a warranty? Believe it. The all wheel drive and dual clutch transmission certainly help but the CLA45 AMG in the video below manages a 12.67 @ 108.8 with a 1.846 60 foot in warm Australian weather. BenzBoost hopefully does not need to provide a geography lesson and explain why it's summer in Australia right now.

    Regardless, impressive performance from the entry level AMG and a 12.67 is the quickest stock pass recorded so far. Below the slip is a video showing he weather conditions as well as several passes.

    Get used to it.
    The facts aren't going to change and I'm not going to stop pointing them out.

    If you feel so strongly about it, why don't you post an intelligent response to my legitimate question ?????


    That "launch" sounds terrible and it sounds like a wet fart between shifts.

    I'm not sure why you aren't understanding this. Mercedes made an entry level AMG car with a four-cylinder. It's all wheel drive with a dual clutch. It has a 2.0 liter motor.

    This site is about Mercedes performance. So, we are going to discuss Mercedes performance.

    Hearing you whine and cry in every thread about what you think the car should be or what others should buy has honestly been run into the ground.

    For those interested in a car AMG produces and what it is capable of this is a discussion about its stock 1/4 mile performance and capability.

    The Audi A4 is positioned against the C-Class and BMW 3-Series. The A3, CLA, and 1-Series are all in their same segment. You had trouble differentiating between the S6 and E63 so no doubt this will prove troublesome for you as well. The S4 is bigger, heavier, and thirstier car and it's less powerful out of the box. It also goes up to $60k with options.

    Regardless, this is a thread about the CLA45 AMG. We get it, you don't like it, you think it's an Evo, ok great. Thanks.

    If the CLA45 had a base price of $29,900, then I would agree it would be a compelling model.

    And, before you scoff, how much more do you REALLY think it costs MB to make the CLA45 over the CLA250 ???

    Regardless, when MB set the price of the CLA45 in the Audi S4 territory, it destined the car for failure.
    Any educated buyer is going to choose the S4 over the CLA45 for basically the same money.

    The CLA propelled Mercedes to first place in sales so... um no.

    Great. So, we can agree the 66% markup for the AMG is f@cking ridiculous in this case.

    Yup, buy selling a ton of cars to people who wanted to own a "Benz" at the cheapest cost possible.
    Yawn.

    A $hit box with a star on the grill is still a $hit box.

    Ya what a POS with all wheel drive, DCT, world's most powerful production four-cylinder, good fuel economy, and 12 second performance. What a pile of crap.

    The upcoming Golf R that isn't for sale yet? That won't be all that much cheaper and will offer less performance? Yeah that makes this look bad.

    Because it's 400 pounds lighter if you don't get the pano roof? Making it much more agile and fun to toss around compared to the heavier s4. It's also just as quick if not quicker with a little 2.0 ... We get it you don't like small displacement engines but their will be plenty of people that will choose this over an s4 ... And vice versa .. Different strokes for different folks that's why their are options available you don't have to discredit it because it's not what tickles your pickle

    How about that... a reasonable response from an enthusiast.

    The CLA is quicker than the S4 stock and lighter. It's a different class of car. The RS3 and the CLA will be competitors. Maybe the S3 Plus instead if Audi does what they say they will.

    All of the dealers on LI can't stock these things enough. Constantly selling out.

    Seems Mercedes hit a home run with the car.

    Agreed.
    I'm glad I'm not the only person on here that isn't so far up Mercedes a$$ that I can't think for myself.

    For $30k this would be a interesting daily driver.
    When you price it at a S4 level, the CLA45 is a joke.

    There should have just been ONE model of this car....the CLA45..... and it should have been priced at the CLA250 pricepoint.

    IF you are talking about the CLA250 which starts at $29,900, then I agree, MB is going to sell many of them due to the price and the star on the grill.

    If you are calling the $50k+ CLA45 a "game changer", than that is the sound of my laughter.


    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.
