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

The suave Audi A5 Sportback blends coupé-like styling with saloon car practicality. It also offers class-leading interior quality, powerful and efficient engines and it's practical for a four-door coupe. Not as involving to drive as some rivals, though.

The BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe is the most logical rival to the CLA, although underneath the skin it’s rear-wheel drive. The Beemer rides and handles well, though, and the diesel engines are both punchy and economical. However, those same diesels can be a little gruff at times, and there’s not as much room in the back of the 4 Series as there is in the A5.
