Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Mercedes CLA-Class coupe?

The BMW 3 Series may not look quite as special as the CLA, but it’s no dullard. In fact, the 3 Series is one of the most desirable executive cars around, thanks to its great handling, great engines and well-made interior with excellent infotainment.

Another option would be the excellent Audi A3 Saloon, which looks like a shrunken A4 on the outside yet it isn’t that much smaller on the inside. The A3 Saloon's interior is much plusher than the CLA's, and its infotainment system is one of the most intuitive in the class.

Overview

The Mercedes CLA is good-looking and some versions of it are cheap, but there are more practical rivals out there

  • Attractive styling
  • Well equipped
  • Scores well on safety
  • Firm ride
  • AMG version is very expensive
  • Rear space is cramped
