Mercedes-Benz CLA Overview
The sleek CLA250 is Mercedes' entry-level, front-drive, compact, four-door coupe. Interior materials are good enough for the Mercedes badge, and fuel economy of 28-mpg is respectable. But the driving experience falls well short of a typical Mercedes. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder and seven-speed automatic lack refinement. It's quick, but power delivery is uneven. Though it's fairly agile, the car rides stiffly. The cabin is noisy and cramped, especially in the rear; the view out is seriously impaired; and access is difficult both front and rear. All-wheel drive is optional. The high-performance, 355-hp CLA45 tops the range. First-year reliability has been well below average, and the CLA scores too low to be recommended.
