Kinda disappointing, but makes sense why Mercedes-Benz is making the CLA front wheel drive. The 4 wheel drive version is particularly disappointing, since it runs on the same concept as a Honda CR-V. Rear wheels aren't even used unless the front loses grip.
A little sad, but a sign of the times.

They don't exactly have a habit of designing for serviceability.
Well, except for that brilliant service position for the hood.

Cost, more cabin space, you know, things that look good on paper.
