Pros

Efficient usage of space, beautiful styling, economical pricing, good performance, optional all-wheel drive


Model Highlights

The first thing people notice about the CLA-Class is its unique styling. Mercedes-Benz classifies the car as a 4-door coupe, much like its older sibling, the CLS-Class. The comparison is apt, as the CLA-Class borrows much of its design language from its bigger brother. However the base price of a CLA-Class is less than half that of a CLS-Class, making the CLA-Class quite a bargain from a styling standpoint.

The CLA-Class utilizes a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine making 208 horsepower and a very healthy 258 pound-feet of torque. Front-wheel drive is standard, with Mercedes-Benz's 4Matic all-wheel-drive system as an option. The only transmission choice is a 7-speed dual-clutch unit, providing the efficiency of a manual with the functionality of an automatic. Performance is sprightly with good acceleration, while fuel economy is also respectable thanks to one of the most aerodynamic bodies ever sold in the U.S.

The CLA-Class is available in only one trim level -- the CLA250. Standard equipment includes 14-way power adjustable front seats, an 8-speaker CD/MP3/Radio sound system, rear seat armrest with cup holders, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, rain sensing wipers, heated mirrors, a 5.8-inch color screen, Bluetooth and an integrated garage door opener.

Options are plentiful on the CLA250 and include items like a panoramic sunroof, HID headlights, a navigation system, heated front seats, PARKTRONIC parking assist, a rearview camera, and a blind spot assist system. Equipment packages include a sports package with unique exterior details and upgraded brakes, an interior package with leather seating surfaces, a premium package with keyless entry and an uprated stereo, and a multimedia package featuring a larger screen and a 6-disc CD changer.

The high-performance CLA45 AMG features a hand-built turbocharged 2.0L inline-4 that produces a stout 355 horsepower -- enough to propel the car from 0-60 mph in just 4.4 seconds. The CLA45 is clad in unique exterior body styling, and inside there's Recaro performance front seats among other AMC-specific amenities.

With the CLA-Class being a bit smaller than typical Mercedes-Benz models, safety was a point of emphasis for the company. Optional safety equipment includes Distronic Plus, a radar-based cruise control system that can automatically apply the brakes if it senses a collision, as well as lane-keeping assist and blind spot assist. Standard safety equipment includes anti-lock brakes and traction control as well as stability control and several airbags for both the front and the sides of the car.


Model News

Following its introduction last year, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA receives few changes. Keyless entry is now part of the Premium Package, a Harman/Kardon sound system, rearview camera, and aluminum trim are now stand-alone options, and a rear armrest with cup holders is now standard.


Value Writeup

The CLA-Class is Mercedes-Benz's attempt to compete with the likes of the diminutive Audi A3 and the BMW 1-series. As the price of gasoline continues to rise, compact luxury cars get more and more popular. Buyers will continue to want all of the technology and luxury features of larger cars without the size or fuel consumption. Mercedes-Benz hopes that attractive styling, a low base price, an upscale name and lots of luxury know-how will be enough to convince buyers to take a serious look at the CLA-Class.
