2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 Review

Small in size, but big otherwise, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 4Matic brought a smile to my face every single day. Of course, graceful curves always please the eye, and even more so when confidently clothed in such a delightful shade of yellow. But that’s just the beginning.

Every inch a proper Mercedes, the CLA 250’s interior bristles with quality materials and easily accessible cutting edge tech, including artificial intelligence and near-autonomous driving capability.

Motivation comes from a 2.0-liter turbocharged four, good for 221 horsepower and 228 lb-ft of torque. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission serves power to all four wheels.

Evocatively demonstrative of the fact that MBZ driving characteristics transcend the size of the car, comfort and handling are blended in an exemplary fashion. The CLA 250 is smooth, well planted at highway speeds and confident in corners.

This is a car you can drive for hours on end and arrive free of fatigue. Plus, you’ll smile to yourself when you look back over your shoulder at it upon reaching your destination.

I like it.

Pricing starts at $36,650.
