If you’re ready to dip your toe in the luxury car market, both the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA and 2019 Audi A3 are solid options.

See how the Mercedes-Benz CLA vs. Audi A3 stand up against each other below!

Audi A3 vs. CLA 250: Pricing

While pricing for both models is fairly close, drivers can pocket a bit more by purchasing the CLA over the A3. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 Coupe comes in with an MSRP of $33,100* while the 2019 Audi A3 starts out with an MSRP of $33,250. Along with keeping a little extra money in the bank, the Mercedes-Benz CLA also has more power under the hood, leaving Westlake shoppers to wonder, “Why pay more for less?”

Audi A3 vs. CLA 250: Performance

When it comes to engine power and specs, the 2019 CLA showcases exactly what drivers expect from a luxury brand, while the A3 performance feels a little lackluster by comparison. The A3 features a 2.0L four-cylinder that’s outmatched by the 2.0L inline-4 turbo of the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250. Compare the specs below:

  • Mercedes-Benz CLA: Delivers an impressive 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque
  • Audi A3: Creates 184 hp and up to 222 lb-ft of torque

If you want an entry-level luxury car that can bring spirited performance to the Cleveland and Strongsville streets, the Mercedes-Ben CLA proves to be the more athletic option.

Audi A3 vs. CLA 250: Features

Explore the interiors of the Mercedes-Benz CLA vs. Audi A3, and car buyers will notice some shared standard and available features that lend both models an upscale feel, including:

  • Leather seating
  • Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™
  • Heated seats
  • 8-inch touchscreen

Despite their similarities, the CLA does bring features to the table that the A3 lacks. If you want front power memory seats and intelligent cruise control, you won’t find these features available on the A3.
