The C-Class is a classic consumed to be reassuring. CLA, younger mind plays the "four-door coupes" by wearing a sexy outfit. However, when they place their score, the Mercedes as well identical format, both equipped with the 2.2 CDI and displayed almost the same price does not show up so different.
Given the hilly roads as photogenic as the Côte d'Azur is really the ideal place to check if the CLA keeps its promise of exclusivity. And since this declination safe Class A shows the template of a class C (4.63 m against 4.59 m) and an equivalent rate, it made sense to invite the "old" to party. Appeared in 2007 and updated in late 2010, the C-Class, with its very traditional but balanced lines certainly remains a popular family. Door-to-short overhangs and stocky forms even give him some momentum ... I forget the second after the onset of CLA. In fact, to make this the most spectacular possible, "baby CLS", the Mercedes designers have been fun to use all possible tricks. You'd think a show car dropped in the street as the CLA gives the impression of jumping even stop! The glittering chrome grille points such as diamonds, small glass surfaces and rear bumper diffuser complete way to attract attention to it.

Even if it is perhaps a little too much, we must recognize that a dog, especially as opening doors without the amount of glass accentuate the look "four-door coupe." The charm continues on board. Although contained in the delivered series sport seat, I enjoy the feeling of sportsmanship, crossbred distinction, which emanates from the dashboard. The wide screen GPS (optional), posed as a display area, helps to install the CLA in the twenty-first century, while the round vents, a nod to the SLS supercar, to add dynamism. After this (excellent) first impression, ergonomics and finish me less enthusiastic, CLA merely in places quite ordinary hard materials. Remarks that do not detract from the charm of this old sedan that is badly his senior. In fact, open the door of the C-Class is (re) discover the fashionable style in Mercedes, a few years ago: a dashboard with sharp lines, squares, reassuring, but now seems dated and austere . If this does not prevent me from finding a driving position thanks to large amplitudes stunning setting, the atmosphere is clearly less exclusive.
