What's Inside the 2019 CLA 250?

Audi, the luxury segment of Volkswagen, shares many similar characteristics with the more conventional automaker. Mercedes-Benz, on the other hand, is purebred luxury in and out with no one quite like it. Karl Benz started off on the right foot when he invented the combustion engine in 1886, and since then, Mercedes-Benz has stood at the forefront of the luxury automotive kingdom. Now in 2019, the CLA 250 is one of the world’s most popular luxury coupes, even more so than the A3. Some of the features you’ll find inside include:
  • 14-way power seats with memory
  • Genuine wood trim
  • Automatic climate control
  • Ambient interior lighting
  • Panoramic sunroof
  • Bluetooth® audio streaming
  • Apple CarPlay/Android Auto
  • and much more!
