The tail is horrible looking. It's heavy and saggy. Not attractive.

Not great, but definitely better than the old one.

Interesting that MB decided to kill the CLS wagon but keep the CLA wagon, were sales of the wagon so much better for the CLA that it was worth keeping it?

Maybe I am in the minority but if I were to buy a wagon, I'd prefer one with a largest boot capacity I could afford, sure the CLA wagon looks sleeker, but that day when you wish to cram some piece of furniture into it and the slopping roof won't let it fit, you are **** out of luck.

Well it's hardly a practical vehicle. Also the boot seems rather small in general, these a

Well, there's also nothing quite like the CLA Shooting Brake... anywhere.

When viewed in direct profile, the trunklid also isn't quite as heavily sloped at the window line would imply. It's actually a neat styling touch, but I imagine the rakish windowline means that visibility is crap.

Well, obviously inspired by the first gen, but still, it exists: The Kia Proceed;

Hmph! Well, there's nothing else like those two, right???

We don't get the Proceed in the US. Is it really considered in the same class in Europe? (incl pricing and "prestige," not just size, power).

Well, the CLA Shooting Break won#t be sold in the US either, as it appears, so both are "EUro only" cars; In terms of size and power (except the AMG 45 model) they are comparable, as in terms of general tech and equipment (of course,the newer Mercedes aill have a few more exclusive optional extras though), but naturally the three pointed star carries more prestige (as it does in the US); But, tbh., at least the last gen CLA is a truly sub-par car in so many ways, there I'd gladly have the Kia over it any day. The new car might be- and hopefully is - a lot better, but the Kia ProCeed is a worthy alternative, just like I'd see a Stinger as a proper alternative to German premiums...

Ungainly is the word I'd use. I cannot unsee that.
