Mercedes-Benz established its luxury credentials with expensive cars like the S-Class sedan and the SL-Class
convertibles. The CLA-Class promises the Mercedes-Benz experience at a notably lower price level. By and large, it succeeds, with expressive design inside and out, and with powerful engines, surprisingly good handling and available all-wheel drive, the $30,000 CLA-Class declares "mission accomplished."
New Features and Revisions
The Mercedes-Benz CLA was all-new last year, so it gets only minor changes this year. Those include ambient lighting as part of the Interior Package, keyless start is now part of the Premium Package, and a larger 7-inch display with the Multimedia package. There's also a new steering wheel.
