Mercedes-Benz wants to expand its U.S. presence, and it's very likely to achieve that goal with the CLA250. Beautifully proportioned styling, strong performance, and the prestige of a three-pointed star make the CLA250 an instant threat to rivals like the Acura ILX and Audi A3.

But the CLA250's potential for conquest doesn't end with traditional competitors. Front-wheel drive and a base price under $30,000 also put it squarely in the sights of non-premium brands like Volkswagen and Ford. This concept might be new to Americans, but it's business as usual in markets like Europe, where Mercedes-Benz has long offered compact and subcompact models that compete at the top end of their respective segments.

Major changes included:

For the 2014 model year, Mercedes-Benz launched a new entry-level sedan dubbed the CLA250. Featuring the swooping roofline of a four-door coupe, it was meant to reel in young buyers. Under its hood, the new CLA250 features a 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 208 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels through a seven-speed automatic transmission. 4MATIC all-wheel drive arrives as a late addition to the 2014 model.
