I like the AWD, but I'm pretty sure it's not a "true" dual clutch.
The MCT from MB is an automatic with a wet clutches.
Not sure, but I think this AMG is getting a MCT.
I HATE the 2.0 liter and that it's a 4cyl.....and the $45k price.
But, it IS bigger than the upcoming $39k audi S3.
The S3 has true DCT, twin turbos, and AWD, but it's a little bit smaller than the CLA.
For the money, I think it's worth the stretch to the Audi S4 for 6 cylinder and the extra room.
Although, I prefer the turbos for their tuneability on the others over the TVS supercharger on the s4. On the other hand, the supercharger is less complicated if you wanna keep the car after warranty.
But , a German car without warranty is like a [email protected]
without a condom.
It could be a fun ride, but not worth the risk.
