The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG

So what makes the Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG a keeper? The masterful combination of its many aspects into a relative-bargain price bracket. All-wheel drive means you can use it all year, even if you live in the snow belt.

Four seats and four doors mean you can bring friends (or your kids) with you--while there's not a ton of space in the rear, it's more than the Cayman, Corvette, or F-Type offer.

The turbocharged 2.0-liter engine's 355 horses make it the most powerful production four-cylinder on the planet--and each one is hand-built by a single builder at the plant in Affalterbach.

Elegant four-door coupe styling, with AMG's added touches, mean you will look like you spent considerably more than the $48,375 price of entry.

But most of all, the CLA45 is the kind of car that commutes in comfort, but never fails to inspire a face-splitting grin. It is, quite possibly, the best all-around, attainable, everyday enthusiast car we've driven.
