Four door mayhem

Introduction

If you take a close look, the new CLA 45 AMG follows the same concept as the WRX and Evo from Japanese manufacturers. It hides a 2.0-litre four cylinder turbocharged powerplant under the bonnet, four doors and a decently sized boot. Albeit the whole concept is undertaken with the usual elegance and sophistication that goes with Mercedes-Benz. But is that sophistication worth the $315,000 price tag that it’s demanding?

Yes, but only if it delivers the same performance that its hatchback sibling, the A 45 AMG, impressed us with last year. We were so blown away we even named it the car of the year! Entry into ownership of AMG’s big brutish V8 monsters has always been a pricey one. The CLA 45 AMG is aimed at lowering the premium into the AMG club and is starting to look like quite an attractive proposition.

The entire experience from registering my car on OneShift to the handing over to the dealer was very pleasant. The process at OneShift was efficient and transparent. Special thanks to RenAi from OneShift who was very detailed and helpful.

Good response and support from Angie at One Shift when I wanted to sell off my old Camry which was due to be scrapped in early February. Would recommend this platform for those wanting to buy or sell their cars.
