2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA45 S review

Overall, the new 2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 S is the more mature choice over an A45. It’s a shame it just misses out on the three-seconds club, because other than that, it would be our pick over the A45 every day of the week. In red.

2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 S 4matic+ review

I will begin this review of the C118 CLA45S by saying that I have been lucky to have owned two of the previous model (the C117 in both the first generation and the facelifted 2016 versions), so a lot of comparisons will be made. When the C118 model was announced in the middle of last year, I was not completely convinced about giving the CLA a third try...
