Mercedes-Benz CLA250 configurator

Mercedes-Benz is launching its entry-level CLA-Class in the United States this fall, and you can now build the small, swoopy sedan of your dreams using the automaker's online configurator. Right now, your choices are limited to the front-wheel-drive CLA250 model, though Mercedes-Benz will be offering the CLA with 4Matic all-wheel drive not long after, as well as the hotter-than-hot CLA45 AMG.

On the base end, the CLA250 starts at $30,825 (including $925 for destination), but things can move up quickly from there. A total of 10 color choices are available, including the Universe Blue Metallic ($720) you see above, and three different wheel options are available, measuring 17 inches on the base end (pictured), and 18 inches as you move upmarket.

Specific options include a $2,000 sport package, which gets you an added kick of aggressive styling, and things like a panoramic sunroof ($1,480) and a lighting package with xenon headlamps and LED taillamps ($850). Inside, there's a leather upholstery package available ($1,500), as well as the usual premium and multimedia packages ($2,200 and $2,370, respectively). Tick every option, and you'll run a few grand shy of $50,000. Woof.
