2019 Mercedes-Benz A 220 vs 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250

There has been a lot of buzz surrounding the most recent model to be released from Mercedes-Benz. It has a ton of technology features, and with a surprisingly low MSRP, this one may be flying off the shelves soon. The long-awaited A-Class sedan carries on the legacy of Mercedes-Benz into 2019. To true Mercedes-Benz aficionados, though, it may appear to be surprisingly similar to another model: the CLA. There are a few differences that separate the two, though. For one, the CLA houses a coupe body style with its sloping roof while the A 220 is a compact sedan. These are just a couple of differences. Take a look at some additional comparisons below as we put the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A 220 vs 2019 CLA 250 in a head-to-head matchup.

Specs and features in the A-Class and CLA

These two models have an interesting set of comparisons between them. Yes, they look quite similar, which is why it may be a hard decision choosing one over the other. The A 220 is equipped with the innovative, industry-first Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) technology. This technology has an advanced voice recognition system that can perform a variety of commands and answer questions with ease, allowing drivers to make requests without taking their hands off the steering wheel and simply starting with “Hey Mercedes”, followed by their command. While it’s currently only available in the A-Class, it may soon be available in other models as well.

The CLA, meanwhile, is still a better option for higher performance. As you’ll notice in the table above, it offers more horsepower and torque than the A 220. Additionally, you’ll have the option to upgrade to the more powerful AMG® CLA 45. While it’s a bit pricier, the AMG® CLA 45 will get you an incredible 381 horsepower for more adrenaline-inducing thrills.

It all comes down to what you value most in a car, so both options are pretty good here. We can help you make that decision here at Mercedes-Benz of Gilbert! Get in touch with us today to schedule a test drive!
