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 228 Gran Coupe than the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW 228 Gran Coupe, drivers may find the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 228 Gran Coupe as you will with the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 228 Gran Coupe is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250. 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 228 Gran Coupe and the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 228 Gran Coupe is a little narrower than the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The BMW 228 Gran Coupe is slightly shorter than the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the BMW 228 Gran Coupe and the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The BMW 228 Gran Coupe has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 228 Gran Coupe is somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 228 Gran Coupe and the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250. The BMW 228 Gran Coupe has less cargo capacity than the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The BMW 228 Gran Coupe comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250.
