How the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 Takes on the Audi A3

For those looking to upgrade to the luxury automotive lifestyle, the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 is a perfect fit--but there are some who consider the Audi A3. Here's a brief comparison of these two luxury performance cars to help you find the right fit for you and your style:

Luxury Sport Performance

Drivers choose luxury performance cars for their high-performance and expert handling. The Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 four-door coupe hits the road hard with a 208-horsepower turbo-charged engine with 258 pound-feet of torque. That's plenty of power to take on the 101 with complete confidence. The Audi A3, however, offers up only 186 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque--despite burning more fuel.

Advanced Luxury Features

The CLA 250 offers you the finest in automotive features, like a hands-free power trunk lid, 14-way power front seats with memory, and ambient interior lighting. Similar features for the Audi A3 are expensive options available only on upper trim-levels.

Although the Audi A3 appears adequate, you can plainly see that the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 has much more to offer you, including more luxury features and higher performance. You can experience all the advantages of the Mercedes-Benz CLA first-hand at your Mercedes-Benz dealer.
