Benefits of Driving a 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class Sedan
The CLA is Mercedes-Benz' 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 luxury know-how, will be enough to convince buyers to take a serious look at the CLA.
What's new for 2014?
The CLA is a brand new model. Significantly, it is the first car Mercedes-Benz has ever sold in America with front-wheel drive as standard. It competes at a lower price point than is typical for the luxury marque, while still maintaining all of special touches that make a Mercedes-Benz a Mercedes-Benz.
Efficient usage of space, beautiful styling, economical pricing, good performance, optional all-wheel drive
The first thing people notice about the CLA is its styling. Mercedes-Benz classifies the car as a 4-door coupe, much like its older sibling the CLS. The comparison is apt, as the CLA borrows much of its design language from its bigger brother. However the base price of a CLA is less than half that of a CLS making the CLA quite a bargain from a styling standpoint.
