Mercedes-Benz CLA Review: A Style-Focused Four-Door Car
The Mercedes-Benz CLA is a style-focused four-door car that offers a lot of bang for your buck. It comes with a good amount of interior space, plus some impressive technology and safety features. But it’s not without its drawbacks: Some people report issues with the CLA’s ride quality and powertrain performance. If you’re looking for an affordable luxury vehicle that will give you all the things we love about Mercedes-Benz cars without having to pay top dollar, then this might be an excellent choice!
The CLA is a four-door coupe, available in three body styles: the CLA 250, CLA 250 4MATIC, and CLA 45 AMG. The base model has two doors and seats five passengers; the midsize option adds two more doors but sacrifices some interior space; while the high-end version offers all four doors and offers luxury features such as sunroofs or rear seats.
The car’s design is sleek—low roofline, long front end with wide wraparound windows that give it an aerodynamic shape. It looks like something out of Star Wars: The Force Awakens (which we’re not counting as an actual example).
Inside the cabin of this Mercedes Benz vehicle, there are plenty of amenities for those who love the style—from ambient lighting to soft surfaces like leather upholstery throughout each cabin compartment including even your backseat area!
The CLA’s interior is spacious and comfortable, with plenty of legroom for passengers in the backseat. There are five adults that can fit comfortably in this vehicle, and there’s even enough room for two adults to sit behind the driver’s seat on long journeys. The dashboard layout makes it easy to use all of the car’s features and controls, with large buttons that clearly label their functions.
The infotainment system has all of your favorite apps preloaded onto it so you don’t have to worry about looking up which ones you want to be installed or downloading them yourself (which is often done manually). The navigation system works well when driving around town or on longer trips as well; however, when compared against other competitors’ systems such as BMW’s iDrive interface or Audi’s MMI controller system (which both offer similar functionality), Mercedes’ solution feels less intuitive but still effective enough for most people who aren’t tech-savvy enthusiasts who know what they’re doing when using a computer program like Google Maps within an app store application on their smartphone device while sitting behind another person who may not know exactly how things work either.
The CLA250 is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 208 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. This powertrain can be mated to either a six-speed automatic transmission or an optional eight-speed automatic transmission, which features Smart Automatic Start and Stop technology to help save fuel when it’s not needed as much (but still has full control over when the car starts).
The CLA250 also comes standard with all-wheel drive as well as AWD when needed for better traction on slippery roads or during inclement weather conditions—even if you’re driving through the snow! For those who want even more control over their vehicle’s handling capabilities, Mercedes offers an optional Sport Handling Package ($1,700) which adds sporty steering assistance software along with various other performance upgrades such as stiffer shock absorbers and bushings positioned at key areas around the chassis; plus adaptive suspension damping settings so they can be tuned precisely depending on how aggressively you drive your car every day.
The CLA has a 7.0-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard, which is a step above the base model’s 6.5-inch touchscreen unit. It also includes navigation, voice control, and Bluetooth connectivity for your phone or another device.
The CLA comes with an intuitive user interface that makes it easy to use when you’re behind the wheel of a Mercedes-Benz car or truck (or SUV). You can access music from your phone through Siri Eyes Free mode; answer calls by saying “Hey Mercedes”; check out Facebook or Twitter feeds from another screen using the “Facebook Messenger” icon on the top left corner of the display; read text messages aloud in normal voice mode without having to unlock vehicle door first – just say “Read Message” followed by name/message combination you want to be heard aloud!
The CLA is a safe car. It has been tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and received good ratings in all crash tests.
The CLA also earned a 5-star rating from Euro NCAP, which is the highest possible score for adult occupant protection without the addition of an autonomous driving system or other advanced safety features. In its tests, it was able to withstand frontal collisions at speeds up to 100 km/h (62 mph).
The Mercedes-Benz CLA has a lot to offer, including style and comfort.
The Mercedes-Benz CLA is a stylish four-door car that offers a lot of features and comes with a great price tag. It’s one of the most affordable luxury cars on the market, and it gives you everything you need for an enjoyable drive: style, comfort, and performance.
The CLA has an interior design that will appeal to many people because it looks like a more expensive vehicle than what it actually costs (and then some). The interior is both comfortable and stylish at the same time; there are plenty of soft materials used throughout this vehicle for comfort as well as style elements like leather seats or wood trimming around windowsills so they don’t clash with each other in any way during use (or even just sitting there idle).
The CLA also offers standard safety features such as blind spot monitoring, radar cruise control, lane departure warning plus stop & go assist which helps keep drivers alert while driving without having them worry about getting into accidents.
The CLA is a well-built, stylish and comfortable car. It has the right mix of technology and luxury to make it appealing to a wide range of drivers. With its stylish design, intuitive controls, ample safety features, and strong performance on many road conditions, the CLA is one of the best cars in its class.
