Although the German luxury brand calls it a coupe, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA is its most affordable four-door sedan. In fact, it’s the least expensive Mercedes available, with a starting price around $33,000. Among a list of desirable rivals, which includes the Audi A3, Acura ILX, and the Buick Verano, the CLA remains a favorite and is consistently one of the best-selling vehicles in its class. (The BMW 2 Series also plays in this crowd, but it’s only available as a true two-door coupe.)
Built in Kecskemet, Hungary, the 2017 CLA slots below the larger and significantly pricier C-Class in Mercedes’ extensive lineup. Still in its first generation, this luxurious and fun to drive model was updated for 2017 with a few styling revisions, a larger infotainment screen, and a standard rear-view camera.
