Revealed early last year, the second-generation Mercedes-Benz CLA (C118) carries on the recipe that made its predecessor a success – sleek design, compact dimensions, and naturally, the badge. However, we think lower rung variants like Mercedes-Benz CLA 200 and CLA 250 won't make it here in Malaysia. Since the first generation CLA, younger demographics began to be associated with the brand, which marked the start of the change in brand image.
