Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Kia Stinger as you will with the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Kia Stinger will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Kia Stinger will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35.

Dimensions
The Kia Stinger is a little wider than the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Kia Stinger, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Kia Stinger transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Kia Stinger is somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Kia Stinger and the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Kia Stinger than that of the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35.
