The wheelbase even the standard car is pretty long. I think the CLA is fugly as hell, so I think they should just bring the sedan here to the US, personally. Infinitely more elegant and Mercedes-like.

Tail light graphics stray far too close to Audi territory for my liking, but otherwise a nice design.

Nah, the Mazda DLO is way smaller. ;) And I imagine the US A-classes will have ~20-40 more HP than the most powerful Mazda. :)

Mazda interior quality might be better, though (running and ducking)....

I was talking about the design of the trunk.

OHHHHHH!!! Yes, that makes WAY more sense. I was thinking, "How could you confuse the relatively upright A-Class for a Mazda 3???"

Yes, there is a similarity w/ the trunks, esp the "inner" portion. I think part of it, though, is the very Mazda red color that MB used in the studio pic.

The tail is too stubby. Making it 6 inches longer and less droopy would have made this truly wonderful. This spanks the ugly CLA.

It also would've given more people a reason not to get a C-Class, presumably.... So MB prob doesn't want it to be TOO wonderful so you feel like you have to upgrade to a more expensive MB....

Looking at the Maybach concept, the stubby tail might be Merc's next big thing, so better get used to it...
