I have been following somewhat close to the CLA too and just gauging from the amount of interest for the CLA45 AMG its no surprise. Many have already dropped a deposit for one. Its probably one of the most affordable AMGs ever. For the price you get a good amount of performance and luxury for your buck.

New Zealand has the highest amount of AMG's per capita. They like to go fast over there... but they like big V8s, ever hear of Holden Commodore and Ford Falcon?

sounds liek more interest in racing than anything...

"We have many customers who would like to race a three-pointed star but not an SLS GT3 at the first [stage]. Maybe it is too serious or too expensive."
CLA Race hello, they should do a GLA race just for kicks ;)

Im not surprised to see these flying off the shelves. It's the cheapest AMG money can buy that still look really good and can beat V8's in the 1/4 mile or at least keep up with them.

well considering how few they are making its not extremely hard to sell out of them.

But I mean... The reason the CLA 45 AMG is successful is the same reason the CLA 250 is also successful..

Attractive car. Mercedes badge. Marketed at youth. Low entry price. Kate Upton and Usher in the commercials?! Soold

yep yeppp, hit it on the head there fella. Of course the baby AMGs are going to sell. It was never a question of demand for these cars but always a question of quality.

What type of quality had to be sacrificed for quantity. Any body who has studied economics for 10 seconds will know that Quality and Quantity are mutually exclusive. No you cannot have your cake and eat it too...

for the most part If you wanted to get a feel for quality the CLA would be a good reference to the GLA interior wise.

and it hasn't been good, poor fitting panels with 1-2 inch gaps, not pretty. they should hopefully learn from that and have an even more flawless interior on the GLA.

the CLA is understandable since the price for them is low for a mercedes and its an entry leevl just like how the 190e was back in the day. But that isn't an excuse for the GLA.
