German auto giant Mercedes-Benz has teamed up with Garmin to create a smartwatch that can feed important health data back to your vehicle in order to provide you with a calmer, more enjoyable experience. Almost 150,000 were sold in the United States alone, with sales surely helped by the CLA's low price: it was originally advertised starting under $30,000.

Mercedes also notes that handling should be further improved over the old CLA-Class thanks to a lower center of gravity and front and rear tracks that are wider by 2.5 and 2.2 inches respectively. This version makes 221 horsepower, a 13-horse increase over the predecessor, and 33 more than in the A-Class.
