Top 3 Reasons to Buy or Lease a 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250

September 28th, 2017 by

The 2018 CLA 250 is priced below any other Mercedes-Benz model, but that doesn’t mean it lacks sophistication. Starting at under $35k, the CLA offers not only the iconic three-pronged star badging, but also a bevy of luxurious and stylish features in a more-spacious-than-advertised 4-door coupe that’s always fun to drive. Need more reasons to consider the CLA 250? Here are our top three:


1) All the Features You Need… and More

  • MB-Tex: The Mercedes-Benz CLA 250’s seats are made from unique, soft-touch MB-Tex material, which is also stitched along the upper dashboard and door trims. Synthetic leather doesn’t feel any more authentic than this.
  • Panorama Roof: Also an available feature, this convertible-like glass sunroof slides completely back to offer skyward views to front and rear passengers.
  • Mercedes-Benzmbrace® Connect: Standard with all new CLA 250 models sold at our Roanoke Mercedes-Benz dealership is a 5-year plan with the exclusivembrace® Connect service. Using your smartphone, you can remotely start your CLA 250, send destinations to the built-in COMAND® navigation system, and much more.
  • Apple CarPlay & Android Auto: For a few extra Ben Franklins, you can add both of these music streaming options (with the Smartphone Integration package).


Other standard features include an 8-inch touchscreen, two USB ports, HD radio, dual-zone climate control, push-button start, forward collision warning, automatic emergency brakes, 14-way power front seats, keyless entry, rain-sensing wipers, a rearview camera, and a drowsy-driver monitoring system. See? Luxury at a price you can be happy with.

2) Clever, Spacious Storage Solutions

Got a tee time at Blue Hills in Roanoke, VA? No problem, because there are 13.1 cubic feet of storage waiting for you in the back. Just swipe your foot underneath the bumper to access the trunk, which is large and deep enough to fit a set of golf clubs and shoes. Best yet, if you swing the rear seats down, that cargo space expands out and into the cabin—and you can still fit a third passenger!

3) Fun to Drive & Efficient to Boot

Sitting underneath the hood of the 2018 CLA 250 is a lively 2.0L turbo-four that generates 208 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque. Upshifting is smooth and quick thanks to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. Pop the car into Sport mode, and you’ll get an energized jump. Take to the paddle shifters, and you’ll be in for the time of your life. Steering is equally impressive and responds nicely around sharp turns. Make the upgrade to “4MATIC®” all-wheel drive and the CLA 250’s dynamism is quite apparent—it shifts 50% of power to the rear wheels, producing that vitality we’ve all come to expect from Mercedes-Benz.

Returning 36 mpg on the highway, the new CLA 250 is also one of the most efficient four-door cars in its class.
