2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 vs. 2018 BMW 320i

2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250vs. 2018 BMW 320i

If you’re shopping for a sporty five-seater, you’re likely aiming for a spirited coupe or sedan that’s great on gas and offers the latest amenities to enhance your Ewa Beach cruising. For many drivers shopping for an entry-level luxury vehicle, BMW is the go-to premium brand, or, more specifically, the BMW 3-Series 320i Sedan. However, when you compare the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 vs. the 2018 BMW 320i, you’ll notice some shortcomings on the BMW side. Check out Mercedes-Benz of Honolulu’s comparison below to see which luxury vehicle is best for you: the Mercedes-Benz CLA or BMW 3-Series.

Specs, Handling, & Fuel-Efficiency

At the heart of the 2018 BMW 320i rests a 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine, which outputs a cool 180 hp and 200 lb-ft of torque. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 also includes a 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder, yet produces a stronger 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque for nimbler handling in the city and sharper acceleration on the highway. Handling-wise, both vehicles aim to provide a super-responsive driving experience with standard independent suspension and efficient Stop/Start technology. Despite its higher engine specs, the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 earns up to 24 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway vs. 23 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway with the BMW.

Comforts & Amenities

Behind the wheel of the BMW 320i, you’ll have access to everything from a leather-wrapped steering wheel to dual-zone automatic climate control. Opting for the CLA 250 Coupe, though, gets you those features and more for a greater value! In addition, the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 includes a handful of standard and optional features not found on the BMW 320i, including:

  • Power-Adjustable Driver Seat with Memory: Able to store up to three seating positions, the driver’s seat features a 14-way power adjustment, ensuring you’re always at ease on the road.
  • 8-inch Display Screen: A large display screen comes as standard to offer a better view of Bluetooth®* phonebooks, Media Interface, etc. than the BMW 320i’s diminutive 6.5-inch alternative. Plus, the CLA 250’s available voice commands make it easier to adjust settings on the go.
  • Optional Intelligent Cruise Control: Using radar sensors, Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC® follows the flow of traffic and can even brake/accelerate autonomously for relaxed highway cruising.

Driver Assistive Technologies

Fortified with programmable LED Daytime Running Lights, multiple airbags, a rearview camera, rain-sensing wipers, and remote keyless entry, the BMW 320i aims to make your driving experience a safe and secure one. The CLA 250 Coupe, on the other hand, not only includes many of the 320i Sedan’s safety features, it expands on them by integrating the following:

  • Active Brake Assist — monitors the proximity of straight-ahead vehicles and can brake automatically to mitigate or avoid an accident.
  • ATTENTION ASSIST® — monitors driving behavior and alerts drivers when fatigued driving is detected.
