2016 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class Buyer's Guide
The 2016 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class is an upscale four-door sedan with coupe-like styling, offering seating for five passengers. The 2016 CLA-Class, for now, consists of a more limited range than most other Mercedes-Benz models. There’s the base model CLA250 and the high-performance CLA45 AMG, which offers exclusive design features in addition to its more powerful engine. Mercedes-Benz is likely to expand the models in the CLA-Class in the future. The CLA-Class was introduced as an all-new vehicle for the 2014 model year, and it’s received minor updates since its introduction, including a few new options for 2016. It serves as Mercedes-Benz’ entry-level sedan and its attractive base price helps generate interest in the brand.

Why buy the 2016 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class?
The 2016 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, particularly the CLA250 model, represents the entry level to the brand’s sedan lineup, and is a good choice for buyers who want a luxury car on a relatively low budget. The CLA-Class is not cheap or affordable, but represents a good value for the price, with plenty of opportunity to scale up or customize. Despite the four doors and second row, the CLA-Class is small, with a cramped backseat that suggests it’s best suited for buyers who want the option of a backseat, but don’t actually need it regularly. The CLA250 gets a new Dynamic Select drive mode for this year, as well as new adaptive suspension dampers, updates to the ambient lighting package, and new interior upholstery options.
