2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 4Matic Review

What does it mean when a fully loaded Chevrolet Cruze diesel costs the same as the entry level Mercedes-Benz CLA 250?
If you’re looking for value, you’d have found yourself in the Chevy dealership, looking to pack on high-tech goodies like adaptive cruise control and fuel-efficient powertrains like a 1.6 diesel engine. But mainstream vehicles like the Cruze lack the outward premium appeal of something with a Mercedes badge; and in today’s world of social media posting with fancy photo filters, don’t drivers just want everyone else to know that they’re successful enough to own a Mercedes?

not a fan of the CLA. felt like driving a corolla. the steering was light and had no feel. did feel rather punchy when I got on it but the seats were incredibly uncomfortable. they were wide, like 300lb person wide. There was no support, lateral or otherwise. definitely not a consideration. hopefully this is not something that will work its way up the food chain.

I'm so torn with Mercs... been a driver for over 15 years now and I truly believe the company stopped in 1999. I had high hopes for my 2009 E350, but I sold it- not good enough. These new Cla drivers have no heart. The cars nowadays have no soul. Maybe I need to buy an Alfa?

For that kind of coin, I'd rather go with a Chevy Cruze Diesel. You get Diesel torque and efficiency, plus a ton of amenities.

2000 S430 (Dad's car)
2003 S430 (just 'cause I like it)
2003 S600 twin turbo w/ coilover conversion (the sports car)
2005 E320 CDI (current project car)

2000 S500 (my first W220 project car, gone to an excellent home)
