Dare to Compare: CLA vs. Audi A5 vs. Lexus IS

Dare to Compare Mercedes-Benz CLA

If you’re like us, you probably can’t think of a better area than Ewa Beach or Waipahu to cruise in a luxury coupe. So, which model offers the open-road experience you want for a cost-effective price? Our vote is for the CLA Coupe—and many critics would agree! To showcase some of this four-door coupe’s greatest specs and features, we’ve compared it to two of its toughest competitors: 2018 Audi A5 and 2018 Lexus IS. Look below to see how the new CLA stacks up!

All-Around Enjoyable Ride Quality

Fuel-efficient and reasonably priced, the CLA 250 not only goes further on less gas than the Audi A5 and Lexus IS, it also offers exclusives to keep you comfortable along the way. Power front seats with memory provide support for you and your front passenger, while optional adjustable suspension fine-tunes shocks for a sporty or relaxed drive. All the while, a driver attention monitor (ATTENTION ASSIST®) watches your driving behaviors for signs of tiredness.
