While many automakers at this year's Cleveland Auto Show are spotlighting what's already on the road, others are showing what's down the road.

Concept cars are often the highlights of auto shows as they're a pathway to the possible.

"It's really interesting because we drive everyday, but when you see the new concept cars it's great to get a little glimpse of the future," says Gary Krause, who works at a Subaru dealership.

The one concept car that had everyone taking a closer look was the Mercedes CLA-250.

You might get sticker shock from this car, but not because of a high price.

In an attempt to attract younger buyers to the Mercedes brand, the MSRP is just under $30,000.

That's a concept many people could get behind.
