Introduction

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class boasts styling changes. Now in its fourth year, the CLA-Class is an entry-level luxury car. The smallest sedan that wears the Mercedes-Benz badge, it looks more like a coupe than a sedan and is shaped like the larger CLS-Class, which is referred to as a four-door coupe.

The 2017 CLA-Class sports new bumpers, a new front fascia with expressive air intakes, LED headlamps and taillamps, and a new rear spoiler. The styling updates scratch the surface of relative flamboyance and make its chief rival, the Audi A3, look downright dowdy. More changes for the 2017 CLA-Class include new upholstery, trim, and gauges with red needles.

The entry CLA-Class is the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 with solid and economical performance from a 208-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with a strong 254 pound-feet of torque, mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The engine is mounted transversely, with front-wheel drive standard, making the CLA 250 the first front-wheel-drive Mercedes-Benz sedan ever sold in the U.S. All-wheel drive is optional. The CLA 250 can accelerate to 60 miles per hour in less than seven seconds, and it gets an EPA-rated 26/38 miles per gallon City/Highway, or 30 mpg Combined. With all-wheel drive it’s three miles per gallon lower.

The CLA45 AMG ups the performance by a ton. It’s the hot rod, as any AMG is, designed for the enthusiast. It uses the same basic 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, pumped up to an amazing 375 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. (We wonder whether the CLA 250 is super-durable because it’s apparently so under-stressed.) A vast number of mechanical parts on the CLA45 AMG have been strengthened or in some way improved, including the 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. It’s all-wheel drive. It will zoom to 60 in just 4.1 seconds.

Curiously, although they both use a 7-speed transmission, neither car comes standard with paddle shifters, they’re optional, for both. The CLA 250 uses a retro column selector, and the AMG shifts on the console.

Lineup

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class includes the CLA 250 ($32,050) with front-wheel drive, the CLA 250 4MATIC ($34,050) with all-wheel drive, and the high-performance CLA45 AMG ($49,500) with all-wheel drive.

Standard equipment includes a rearview camera, new for 2017, Bluetooth, Mercedes-Tex vinyl upholstery, and an Attention Assist system that tells you when to drink coffee. Optional for the 2017 CLA-Class are LED high performance headlamps and multi-intensity taillamps. (All prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)

Walkaround

The CLA 250 presents a dramatic shape, with an arc-like profile from a radically raked windshield and back glass, over a high beltline and around curved fenders to a low nose and tail. There are no upright frames in the side glass to break up the swoop. The result of all this is a coefficient of drag that’s just 0.23, helped by aero shields under the car.

Meanwhile, the CLA45 AMG takes the same shape and makes it look like a street fighter. The already big front air intakes yawn wider, and the CLA 250’s mesh grill gets replaced by two silver blades.

Interior

The interior matches the exterior for swoop and drama. The only problem is that on the exterior, swoop is aerodynamically efficient, but on the inside it just wastes space, or at least prevents opportunities to use it. For example, the sexy roofline reduces back-seat utility, along with rearward visibility, with the pinched view in the mirror compounded by the lip spoiler and uplifted rear deck.

There’s not much room in the rear, and the slim doors make it difficult to climb in and out. Legroom and headroom are limited and it’s no place for old men. But there are a lot of small storage bins and trays.

A big LCD rises from the low dash, which some love and some hate. It’s been made smaller for 2017. The rest of the dash feels inspired by consumer electronics. It’s crisp and modern, with graphics on various screens that are clear.

The new trims for 2017 include something Mercedes calls sail-look, black Dinamica micro fiber, and more traditional matte black ash wood.

Driving Impressions

When normal mode is selected, the CLA 250’s dual-clutch 7-speed automatic transmission can act like it’s caught off guard when you hammer the throttle, as if it’s not programmed to accept that sort of behavior in the modest car. So put it in Sport mode if that’s what you plan to do. This lag might be a result of the pursuit of fuel mileage, with programming to keep the transmission in higher gears that use lower rpm.

The CLA 250 rides with a firm, heavy and planted feeling, like a Mercedes-Benz, in other words. Its steering feels tightly tuned, again like a Mercedes-Benz. The steering is nicely weighted and the response is quick, getting heavier and quicker as cornering speed increases. Feedback is minimal and typical electric-steering numbness survives. It corners flat. The standard run-flat 17-inch tires deliver a ride that’s reasonably compliant but sometimes unsettled. Eighteen-inchers are available, which might settle things and will probably change the steering. If you’re going to corner the CLA 250 hard, we’d say choose the all-wheel drive for $2000.

The CLA45 AMG feels totally different, even without the available AMG sport suspension package. It corners flatter than the flat of the CLA 250, without feeling any harsher on rough surfaces. The 7-speed dual clutch transmission shifts sharper and more aggressively, meaning more often. The all-wheel drive starts out driving the front wheels but shifts to as much as 50 percent in the rear when traction is needed at the rear wheels, which might be often if you drive hard and pitch it around. When it gets to 50/50 it’s like a Subaru (a leader in all-wheel drive technology).

Of course there’s no reason the CLA45 AMG should feel like the CLA 250, because its steering, suspension and brakes are different. The steering has a quicker ratio and its suspension sits one inch lower and one-half inch wider, with three links and stiffer bearings at each front wheel, to handle the tremendous torque. The front anti-roll bar is fatter. At the rear, there are four links, coil springs, a body-mounted subframe, another fatter anti-roll bar, and 18-inch wheels (19-inch optional). The electronic stability system includes torque vectoring, adjusting the braking and power to each wheel to assist traction at the wheel during cornering.

The result is powerful acceleration and eye-popping grip with totally neutral handling with zero understeer and undetectable torque steer. And if you want to play drag racer, there’s Racestart launch control, to keep the tires from spinning when you floor it from a standing start.

Summary

The owner of a Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class will likely have the prettiest car on the block. The CLA 250 has all the right Mercedes-Benz smooth stuff, with none of the stodginess, although the price of styling is rear passenger comfort. The CLA45 AMG, for a lot more money, is an outright hotrod; as such, it has more competition.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
