2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 vs 2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG® CLA 45

The most affordable Mercedes-Benz model in the lineup is the base CLA 250. Despite sporting a lower MSRP than you’d expect out of a luxury car, the CLA offers outstanding performance and great comfort and convenience. There’s more than one CLA model, and depending on which one you choose, you could end up with two totally different models. See how two compare as we look at the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 vs 2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG® CLA 45!

The two major differences between these two is cost and performance. While the CLA 250 has an MSRP of just $32,700*, it won’t be quite as powerful under the hood. The AMG® CLA 45 comes in at $53,100* and sports an incredible 375 horsepower from the handcrafted AMG® 2.0L inline-4 turbocharged engine. So is it worth the upgrade? Take a look below!
