Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 Gets Reviewed by Car And Driver

After about two months of solid sales, the Mercedes-Benz CLA is still the main topic of discussion when talking about the three-pointed star in the United States, with the model actually being on track to becoming the best sold Mercedes-Benz in the land of the free.

Most car magazines have jumped at reviewing its hardcore and more expensive cousin, the CLA 45 AMG, but its the “base” CLA 250 who will carry the weight of most sales, naturally.

Powered by a two-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder mill, the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 develops 211 hp (208 bhp) and 350 Nm (258 lb ft) of torque, enough to propel the sexy little four-door coupe from naught to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.7 seconds in Europe, while Car and Driver reports a 0-60 mph time of just 6.3 seconds.

Speaking of the American car mag, they recently spent some time with the CLA 250 both on and off the track, writing a proper review afterwards.

With most questions about the model revolving around its quality and how it handles - taking into account the fact that it's front wheel drive - Car and Driver editors spoke about both the ups and the downs of buying the cheapest Mercedes-Benz currently available in the United States. All in all, they keep comparing it with “proper Mercedes-Benzes” and arriving at a rather lukewarm decision, despite the car surprising them in a good way during the handling test and other areas.
