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

AMG Line Premium is worth considering for the larger instrument display, keyless entry and an upgraded stereo.

This plug-in hybrid CLA is the obvious choice in the lineup for company car drivers. A 1.3-litre petrol engine is paired with an electric motor to deliver a boost in performance, improve fuel efficiency, and offer the ability to travel on electric power alone. It’s almost as quick as the CLA 250, and is said to travel for up to 44 miles on electric power before it calls on the petrol engine for assistance. That’s a lot further than the 33-mile Volkswagen Arteon plug-in hybrid offers.
