The trouble is that not everyone can afford such an extravagance. Sure, not everyone can afford a Mercedes, period, but the German automaker is going after a wider demographic with smaller, more cost-effective models.

But while the hatchback version will remain restricted to overseas markets, the CLA is designed with American buyers in mind. And this is our first proper look at the design.

Previewed by the Concept Style Coupe, the CLA cuts a svelte and stylish profile.

It’s also got that nifty perforated grille Benz has been playing with, and from the looks of that last image, a few customization options for the interior. Expect a range of engines driving through a new 4Matic all-wheel drive system Mercedes has developed for this platform, to be topped by the CLA45 AMG.
