Having already seen the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class sitting out in the open fully exposed, in what appear to be leaked press pictures and even some official "spy" shots straight from Mercedes-Benz, we weren't sure how much more of the car we could see before its debut at the Detroit Auto Show in a couple weeks.

Now we know... Indian Autos Blog now has some images of a diecast model showing a scaled-down look at the car in full production form, and while we don't know what company produced this model, it is very highly detailed.

While the recent alleged press shots show what appear to be either a thinly disguised concept car or the CLA45 AMG, these shots of the 1:18 scale diecast are likely are best shots yet of the car in its base form. Pay close attention to the less flashy fascias and wheels, and, more importantly, the detailed look at the inside of the car. Based on what we see on this model, most of the CLA-Class interior will be carried over from the A-Class hatchback, and, like the larger CLS-Class four-door coupe, it will have a four-passenger seating configuration.

      Take my CC any day,original design and not and Infinity over price,other car company's can play with some new models but the hight end upscale brand like this one is one design after another that dilute the brand and they are lost,AMG fast,yes but then no handling or brakes like a Beemer.....Drove a CL65 and was like driving a 1975 Monte Carlo,a lot of power but no handling or brakes to make u feel safe at speed

      looks like Mercedes is going back to overengineering stuff. just look at those hood and trunk hinges... Interior looks cheap, though... even the seats look like plastic ;)

      I want the scale model. I bet the real car sells like hotcakes as they say.

      Of all the posts on Indian Autos Blog this is the one you choose to repost, Autoblog?! I know most of the posts probably won't apply here in North America or even in Europe, but you're reposting a picture of a toy car when we've already seen photos of the real car. I don't understand.

        Why can't automakers keep the same proportions as the old W201's and E28's? They wouldn't have to fill in this "niche market" if they didn't increase the overall vehicle size. My 2ยข.

      From what I'm seeing here, this model seems to be made by either Auto Art or Minichamps. The quality is too good for it to come from Maisto, Yatming or Greenlight, or any of the others for that matter. Plus, Auto Art and Minichamps are probably the only ones to build this, because Daimler now demands the packaging of any licensed Daimler product (Mercedes, Smart, Maybach, Freightliner, etc.) to carry a holigraphic image of the company's logo. Daimler says it's to guarantee authenticity, but to toymakers it means inflated prices and more money in Daimler's pocket. That explains why there aren't many Mercedes models on the shelves nowadays.

        Nice observations. It's not often one comes across a die cast aficionado.
