    Mercedes CLA starts at $29990

    No fancy press release, just a great Super bowl commercial.


    This thing will eat the Verano alive in sales. Especially with that price .

    Nice little car but I don't think is going to eat the verano. First of all I wouldn't put it in the same class but that is just my honest opinion.

    This will not eat the Verano starting at 30K that because nicely equipped it will run into the mid-30's. The Verano is about loaded about the starting price of this car....that mind you is price at a year old C-Class or and entry C Class what is the point?

    It is in the same class but it is way to expensive!

    Strong styling, attractive price, desirable brand.

    MB will do very well, even if the car turned out to be inferior in terms of quality and driving dynamics.

    A part of me loves watching such a vernerable brand making the same mistakes others have.

    How long will the CEO want to spend $100K on his S when his secretary is leasing one of these for $350 a month? Jaguar learned this with the X-Type.

    Is it? The base level of this car gets you 208 hp/258 lb.ft, and a 7 speed DCT as the drivetrain. And it's far more expressive in styling than the Verano. Oh, and the (outgoing) Audi A3 has a similar price point, $27,270 (The loaded one is 32k FYI). The Acura ILX starts at 25K. If anything, it just shows that the Verano is value leader of the segment.

    If Mercedes is smart enough to not let the loaded trims get too high it wouldn't be that big of a deal.

    Don't know about the car, but the ad is certainly alluring.

    Said CEO would probably just go buy a Bentley/Aston Martin Rapide/Rolls Royce if that's the case. But yeah, Mercedes is in worse position than BMW and VAG, they both have outlets on both ends of the market wheras Daimler doesn't .

    The CLA is smaller than the Regal, but if it is close in size to it, the Regal is going to get eaten. Verano is the value leader, and it has nothing to worry about.

    I fully agree. Regal needs to punch back with AWD for $30,000.
