Review
Test drive the new CLA 200. Compared to the previous model, this model not only looks better, the engine performance is also better.

The car is torquey from the moment you step on the accclerator. If you are looking for a refined car that accelerates linearly, this will not be for you. It surges ahead when you step on the accelerator, feels like driving a Japanese turbo car. I tried it on n both comfort and sports mode, both present the same "Unrefinment" Of a merc. Power delivery is much better than the previous model. Could not try long distance acceleration, but I doubt it can hold the power at high rev with its small engine.

Sound insulation is good from blocking sound from outside, but the engine noisy protrudes into the cabin, it has this raspy growl, much like a Honda Civic 1.5t.

Features wise, it does not have bsd, navigation maps and 360 camera, considering the price tag of 188k, it's a bit expensive without some of those features besides having the Mercedes new mbux.

What I like
- Torquey engine response
- nice Looking exterior
- nice interior
- if you like to hear the raw grant noise of the engine, like those jap turbo cars,this will be the car
- mbux looks good

What I do not like
- at the price point, it lacks a lot of features compare to Korean or jap cars
- the car tends to surged froward even at the lightest step on the accelerator, it feels like a beast that is untamed, have to be careful when driving in narrow or curvy roads with those kind of throttle response
- engine noise can be consider loud when you accelerate, not what you would expect from Mercedes
