Default 2020 Mercedes CLA

I thought there had already been a thread, but I couldn't find any;:

So next to the A-Class and GLA, logically the CLA will be replaced as well (and not by the similar A-Class sedan); Visual changes seem limited, proportions still look nose heavy and somehow wrong...

Underneath it will still be a FWD A-Class, and expect the same interior, mostly;

I don't hate the CLA, but it looks like every styling sin of the current one's form is being maintained.

I still maintain the RWD styling applied to FWD proportions is never a good idea.

Having said that, this looks to be significant better, IMHO (it would've been hard to make it looks worse). It looks to me to be quite a big bigger than the current car (a good thing for proportions and space). Also, if they fix the tailight design (which is a given), then the worst part of the current car will have been remedied.

I agree (although some of the "poser on a not so big budget" customers probably would justify some hate), at least it does seem to have a slightly more "forward wedge" stance than the current model, that always seems like it has the trunk full with concrete. Otherwise, the general "RWD theme on a very nose heavy FWD" theme still doens't really work altogether...
