CLA

WOW (Women on Wheels) - - WOW - Penny Viljoen, 30, full-time mom

“Granted, this sleek so­phis­ti­cated car was not con­sid­ered fam­ily ter­ri­tory be­fore, but now it’s mor­phed into an ideal car for me be­cause I don’t have to sac­ri­fice good looks for prac­ti­cal­ity. That’s a big plus in my book. “This is a gen­uine grown-up car on so many levels for me, as I can load up my golf gear for a morn­ing with the book club girls on the green and still pick the kids up from school with more than enough room for their heavy satchels and all that kid­die clob­ber. “I’m to­tally blown away by the slop­ing roofline and easy-open­ing boot with its im­pres­sive 470-litre lug­gage space, which means I can lit­er­ally pack up ev­ery­one, the kitchen sink and the cat bas­kets, and off we go. “When it comes to driv­ing with my two-year old, there’s am­ple space for the child seat and just know­ing she’s all tucked up se­curely with the ISOFIX mount­ings and the pure com­fort and safety as­pects of this car, speak vol­umes for my peace of mind while driv­ing. “I feel to­tally taken care of and that means the world to me and my fam­ily, but at the same time, when I want to break free and have some qual­ity girl time, my CLA in­stantly be­comes my hot wheels!”

“I love this car be­cause... I like the finer things in life and the CLA’s sporty coupé de­sign and dy­namic de­tails like the sassy di­a­mond ra­di­a­tor grille give it loads of glitsy kerb­side ap­peal. I’m a huge fan of the hands­free ac­cess, es­pe­cially when I’m loaded down with shop­ping and a baby buggy. All it takes is a lit­tle kick­ing move­ment un­der the rear bumper for the boot to open and close au­to­mat­i­cally. Bliss!”
