We can buy a BOSS 302 for about $8k less than the CLA45 and have Recaros, 444hp (with terrific throttle response) and adjustable shocks.
the CLA45 has Recaros...
and AWD, similar performance, much nicer interior+exterior.
but sure, if you're one of those Americans who only looks at the numbers, and would buy a track car like a Boss 302 and use it as a daily, then have fun!
