What's New in the 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG?

The CLA250 gets a standard comfort suspension, relegating the sport-tuned suspension to the options list, and some additional features join the equipment roster.

Which CLA 45 AMG is the Best?

The CLA250 comes nicely equipped right out of the box, and its base price is mighty appealing. We'd be inclined to keep the options to a minimum; otherwise, you'll quickly encroach on the territory of larger, more capable car.

How Much Does a 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG Cost?

The CLA250 ($32,425) comes standard with such luxuries as 17-inch alloy wheels (a Sport package adds 18-in alloys and an aero body kit), push-button starting, power front seats with driver memory, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 7-in infotainment display with the COMAND interface, Bluetooth and leatherette (MB-Tex) upholstery.

The CLA45 AMG ($49,425) adds all-wheel drive (optional on the CLA250), an AMG-tuned suspension, 18-in wheels, upgraded brakes, the stronger engine, a performance exhaust system and various AMG styling flourishes.

Options are plentiful and pricey. Highlights include xenon headlights, keyless entry, Harman Kardon audio, a navigation system with an 8-in display, voice controls, heated seats, a panoramic sunroof and leather upholstery. The CLA250 can be equipped with a sport-tuned suspension, while the CLA45 AMG is further eligible for 19-in wheels, carbon-fiber accents and sport front seats.

Rear-seat accommodations in the compact CLA-Class are a lowlight, since there's just not enough room left over for full-sized adults in the second row. The trunk is a pleasant surprise, though, measuring 13 cu ft., a generous allotment for this segment.

Is the 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG a Safe Car?

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class comes standard with stability control, anti-lock disc brakes, nine airbags (front, front-side thorax, front-side pelvis, driver-knee and full-length side-curtain) and mbrace2, a telematics system that can connect to the Internet and contact emergency services if an airbag is deployed. Also standard are a drowsiness monitor and a forward-collision mitigation system with automatic braking. Notable safety options include rear-side airbags, a blind spot monitoring system, lane-keeping assist and adaptive cruise control with enhanced automatic braking capabilities.

Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration nor the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety has crash-tested the CLA at this time. However, Mercedes conducts its own stringent tests, so there's no reason to think that the CLA will ruin the company's fine reputation for safety.

2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG vs the competition

2016 Acura ILX -- The Civic-derived ILX is an affordable alternative to the CLA, lacking the Benz's turbocharged urgency but boasting superior value and a reputation for dependability.

2015 Audi A3 -- Audi's smallest sedan is a bit short on power (unless you spring for the high-performance S3 model), but it's perky enough, and its interior is nicer than that of the CLA.

2015 BMW 2 Series -- Do you really need four doors? If not, consider the sharp-handling and well-appointed 2 Series, which is one of the best performance values on the planet.

Used Mercedes-Benz C-Class -- If the CLA feels like it's missing a certain something, try the previous-generation C-Class sedan, which is widely available at Mercedes dealers with a certified pre-owned warranty.
