2015 BMW 320 vs. 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 320 than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class. The BMW 320 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.

Convenience
With the BMW 320 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The BMW 320 is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW 320 and the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 320 is a little wider than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the BMW 320 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.

Drivetrain
The BMW 320 has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW 320 has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW 320 has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 320 and the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the BMW 320 as you will in the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.

Warranty
The BMW 320 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.
