Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Despite the coupé-like roofline, there’s plenty of head room up front, especially if you avoid the panoramic sunroof that comes with the optional Premium Plus package.

Sadly, the news isn’t so good in the back; yes, leg room is plentiful, but your bonce will be rubbing against the headlining if you’re over six feet tall.

Move to the boot and things are similarly mixed, with the CLA having a bigger capacity than the Audi A5 Sportback (and Mercedes’ own A-Class hatchback), but being trickier to load due to a high lip and small aperture.

However, the door pockets in the front of the car are big enough to hold a small bottle of water and a selection of travel snacks, while the cubby beneath the central armrest is large.
