As we approach the release of the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, a greater number of critics and industry experts have written or filmed reviews. The $30,000 starting price is a main draw because it is the first widely-accessible model, so the question is whether or not it lives up to the expectations of the German automaker. Many consumers do not have the resources to afford some of the other models, so this is the opportunity for everyone to enjoy the opulence and innovation of Mercedes-Benz.
The CLA-Class’s standard 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine produces more than ample power to experience an exhilarating drive. It includes the vast majority of the features and options that you’ll find in the larger C- and S-Class. With options for metal or wood finishes on the interior, as well as more powerful engines, drivers can enjoy the luxury and strength that comes standard with the five-pointed star.
Even the reviewers at Kelley Blue Book acknowledge that consumers aren’t just paying for a mere name. They are paying for the expectation. One of the reviewers, Jason Allan, noted that nothing diminishes how driving the car feels. Even though it is the smallest among the classes, Jason said, “we spent six hours in the car … and never felt cramped or confined in the front.” Intelligent design maximizes space in the front of the cabin without compromising the high-tech options – and gorgeous look – of the dash and instrument clusters.
The CLA-Class is a fun, smaller luxury sedan that truly appeals to a younger generation. People who previously only dreamed of owning a Mercedes-Benz can now bring that to fruition. This new class also acts as a platform upon which new consumers learn the difference between a Mercedes-Benz and everything else – creating a lifelong relationship with the brand.
