Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 330 than the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 and the BMW 330 in the front seats.

Convenience
The BMW 330 requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW 330. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 and the BMW 330 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 is about the same width as the BMW 330. When looking at overall length, the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW 330.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW 330.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 has a smaller turning radius than the BMW 330, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 has less horsepower than the BMW 330, 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 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 and the BMW 330. The Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 has significantly less cargo room than the BMW 330, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 330.
