Review

Point-to-point, the CLA 35 AMG is a seriously quick car, yet it isn't especially exciting to drive. It also generates quite a lot of road noise on the motorway, so it’s not the most refined cruiser.

get the best price

The CLA range opens with AMG Line, which gives you 18in alloy wheels, a sporty body kit, LED headlights, a 7.0in digital instrument cluster, a 10.3in infotainment screen with DAB radio and sat nav, heated front seats and wireless charging.

This entry-level petrol is expected to be the biggest seller, despite its meager 134bhp power output. Based on the more powerful 200, we’d avoid it unless you don’t mind driving rather sedately.
