If Mercedes-Benz BMW M2 With A CLA45 AMG Coupe...

Which car do you think would turn out to be better (performance, design, etc) and why?

Depends what you are referring to for performance.

0-60?
Quarter mile?
Lap times?
skidpad?
handling?
braking performance?

Not sure of the power and all but I think the M2 will handle better than the CLA 45 AMG I mean if it were to happen. The rear wheel drive M2 will always be favored for those hardcore track junkies.

Yup it not like Mercedes to experiment with the rear wheel drive train especially for performance vehicles. It would be nice to see them try one out and see how they go op against BMW but I doubt it would happen.

Mercedes' main focus is to be different than BMW and succeed with their 4 matic all wheel drive system and automatic transmission with the dct. I would love to see the CLA 45 AMG battle it out on the Nuburgring.

I like the CLA coupe look more than the 4 doors.

Mercedes is coming out with a CLA coupe? Really?

It doesn't work for me. the CLA was meant to be a four door compact.

I think this picture is a fan rendering. There is no official word from Mercedes to release a coupe.

I would take the BMW because the CLA doesn't offer manual in North America.
