Many automakers want to mirror the characteristics of their high-end cars in entry-level models, but very few succeed in this regard. The 2014 Mercedes Benz CLA 45 AMG, however, could very well be the exception. The model—which emulates the car manufacturer’s swanky $100,000 CLS63 AMG four-door coupe, truly appears to be a scaled-down version of the vehicle to which it is patterned after. The 2014 CLA is Mercedes’ latest and least-expensive offering.

Don’t let this scaled-down model fool you, though; there is much more to this particular model than meets the eye. In fact, the 2014 CLA is so cool, Motor Authority voted it the Best Performance/Luxury Car To Buy 2014, along with the 2014 Porsche Cayman. Here’s what Motor Authority has to say about what many have dubbed ‘a game-changing vehicle’:


“Fast, stylish, compact, reasonably priced, and incredibly fun, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG is Motor Authority’s Best Performance/Luxury Car To Buy 2014. But it was an exceptionally close race. So close, in fact, that the CLA45 AMG didn’t score an outright win. The 2014 Porsche Cayman is also our Best Car To Buy 2014.

If the Cayman is a symphony, Mercedes-Benz’s 2014 CLA45 AMG, is a rock-star supergroup, jamming for all it’s worth. Luxury, style, performance, and handling come together in a balance where each element stands out, but the whole is still somehow greater than the sum of its parts. As we noted in our nomination, the CLA45 AMG isn’t the most of anything on this list–but it is the most of everything.”

Truly, the 2014 CLA is a prized possession. Thus, when time comes for car maintenance repairs for such a vehicle, you need to find a Tampa Mercedes service center that will care for it as much as you do.
