The Opposite Locker - Edition XXXIX

This is The Opposite Locker where we try and sort out the cool from the square. This is a discussion system detailing how cool a car is, not how fast, fun, or frivolous it may be, but how well it looks in the cat's pajamas. But, you may be asking, what makes a car cool, anyways?

New Kid On The Block

Built for the youngsters who want the prestige of owning a Mercedes yet still want fuel consumption to be light on their wallet, the CLA is Mercedes' attempt to rejoin a market in which Audi and BMW have been ruling for quite some time.
