Arguably the car that started it all, the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class is a vehicle that reminded luxury automakers that they could sell vehicles for less than $30,000. And they could sell an assload of them.

Although vehicles like the BMW 318Ti and Mercedes-Benz C230 Kompressor made it to The States, they didn't exactly fly off dealer lots. More or less, both were flops.

The CLA, however, was the must-have vehicle when it first debuted. While the CLA took a lot of heat from critics, it seems as though buyers can't get enough of them. And the news keeps on getting good for the three-pointed star: Leasees of the CLA seem to be trading up for the C-Class as their incomes and families grow. 

Now that the current-gen CLA and A-Class are a bit old, its time for the all-new, second-gen car. While I've posted a thread or two showing the mules undergoing research and development, we've got an all-new set of spy shots on our hands. 

Showing two vehicles painted a matte orange — I am guessing for crash test purposes — we're now seeing the A-Class and upcoming CLA-Class fully exposed. Need I really say more?
