Review continues below...

Based on the front-drive platform that underpins the A-Class hatchback, the Mercedes CLA is intended to offer buyers a hint of the design flair that originally made the larger CLS popular, but at a significantly lower price point.

However, for what is effectively an entry-level Mercedes, there’s no denying that it’s still rather expensive, often costing more than an equivalent Audi A3 Saloon or the BMW 1 Series. For some, though, the CLA’s extrovert design will be enough to justify such a price tag, but those good looks do have an impact on practicality.

Read on over the next few pages to find out how the CLA compares with its rivals in this class, and to see if those looks are worth spending your money on, and if they're worth sacrificing a bit of comfort for. We'll also tell you which engine and trim combination we recommend.
