Mercedes, as well as other German automaker have tried a number of times to make a cheaper premium car, but failed. That all changed when they made the switch from city car to family compact with the A-Class. And since the hatchback wouldn't work so well in the US, they made a four-door coupe as well.
Probably the most successful Mercedes model at the moment, they sell about 5,000 units of CLA in the US every month. Saabkyle04, a Youtuber know for his in-depth car reviews, went to a Mercedes dealer to check the car out.

This particular example isn't your typical CLA 250, it's the Edition 1, costing $41,000 (think that's with a discount). The special edition was built to celebrate the model's launch and provides distinct touches like neon yellow and the AMG Sport package. It's offered in a choice of five different colors - Cosmos Black, Mountain Grey, Cirrus White, Night Black and Designo Polar Silver Magno.

Inside, Mercedes dressed up the interior in microfiber, nappa leather and a bit of yellow for accenting.There's also a sporty flat-bottomed leather steering wheel and aluminum finish for the air vents and dash.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
