Description: The Mercedes CLA Automatic is a sharp looking four-door variant of the A-Class, and rivals the Audi A3 Saloon. It might be the least expensive Benz available, but the CLA’s swoopy design makes it one of the more stylish cars on the road.
All versions of the Mercedes CLA come with a seven-inch tablet-style central screen, a radio and CD player, USB and Bluetooth.
The Standard safety kit on the CLA includes seven airbags and Isofix child seat mountings. All versions also feature Attention Assist.
For occupants in the rear, however, things aren't so good. The coupe roofline makes space quite tight, and it's easy for taller passengers to bang their head on the low door frame when getting in and out. On paper, the Mercedes CLA is a five-seater, but the seat in the middle of the rear bench is narrow and the wide transmission tunnel means there's not a great deal of foot space.
There is a 470-litre boot with load securing rings.
