    I had my GLA45 spec'd to $75k. Wouldn't hesitate to pay $80k if it had the hybrid system. Unfortunately, it doesn't.
    ill have to get the dealer to order one in an odd color and sit on it for a few months.

    Probably best to stick to a base A45 with select options, thereby keeping it in the 60K range... looking at the competition like RS3 and M2 that seems about right? Yeah for sure, 70K-80K lots of other options to consider once you're in that territory.

    Yeah, but I'm with Rage that kinda disappointed EQ Boost didn't make it to the 45s. Especially they are already have that with GLC250 and 300s.

    Yup, very disappointed. The system works well, maybe a little too well in that my E53 doesn't feel particularly fast except right off the line. Everywhere else it just feels smooth.

    Here's the R&T blurb about it: https://www.roadandtrack.com/car-sho...l-hybrid-2021/

    Still hoping they're wrong as everyone else still reporting A45 will be hybrid, but I mean they talked directly with Tobias Moers, so probably right. There's already an A45 prototype last gen that has all the 48V hybrid bits and exact functionality of what's in my car: https://www.greencarcongress.com/201...13-fevseg.html

    $75K for an A Class with leather?

    Joking aside, that's similar to the RS3/M2 so it seems to be priced competitively. So many nice cars in the $70-80K range though, even within those same brands, it would be really hard to decide.

    I read the new 45 motor is a redesign, so you'd think if they were going to add the 48V hybrid, now would be the logical time.

    Leather? Fuck that, have to go with the cheap vinyl to get these sweet ass alcantara seats.

    Probably wear like shit, but man how good it would feel and smell that first week. Drive around shirtless.

    Those do look awesome. My last S4 had the same style seats (leather bolsters / alcantara seat & seat back) and they were some of the best seats I've experienced. Still looked like new when I sold it, but I didn't drive around shirtless which may affect how they wear haha. I would totally go that route again. Leather is very hot/cold, leather cracks if not taken care of, leather gets wear marks, leather scratches easy - it's never my first choice.

    I'd much rather have cloth/alcantara but with most vehicles you don't get a choice depending on trim level.

    I literally have to keep a suede brush in my door and clean the steering wheel at stop lights to keep it semi soft... lmao.

    Not sure what took them so long to put the driving mode selector on the steering wheel. It's ugly but it's very usable there.

    It’s there on the C since last year’s refresh. I assume it’s on the e as well which has the new steering wheel.
