Farrah Reviews BMW Ball Busting Merc CLA

And it's actually the slipperiest production car in the world.

Its base price is just a tad under $30,000, although you’ll be hard pressed to find one on a dealer lot for that price. But still, the new Mercedes-Benz CLA is a revolutionary breakthrough for the German automaker for a big reason: It’s affordable luxury that’s highly appealing to younger buyers. More than likely, buyers are going to want to equip their CLAs with a bunch of high-tech items that’ll add several thousand bucks to the price tag.

Despite that low sticker, some still don’t believe the CLA is a true Mercedes. For starters, it’s got front-wheel-drive as well as a turbocharged four pot. Then again, this setup could just be more than just good; it may just be outstanding. Matt Farah gets behind the wheel of a CLA250 to offer a true gearhead's opinion.
