I don't get why there is no package that includes the leather seats. No matter what you have to pay $1200 for leather seats..

They should have a Luxury Package with the leather seats, sunroof, headlamps, and wood trim. Sell it at a discounted price.

I will be looking to get the CLA 4matic and driver assistance package. The blind spot assist is a good feature as well as the lane keeping assist. Technology these days are just up and up. But im not to familiar with Distronic, what does that feature do?

The Distronic feature works with the Cruise control. So basically it monitors the spacing between you and the vehicle in front. If you come close then it starts to apply the brakes for you to keep a further distance keeping you in a safe range. With no feet on the pedals of course. This is a great safety feature.

I am going to add the pricing of two other cars I have built using the internet builder

Mercedes Benz C250 Sport
-Lighting Package (Bi-Xenon)
-Panorama Roof
-Leather Seats
-Premium Standard (this is standard I cant remove it)
-Multimedia (Navi)
-Parktronic

Total price of the C250 Sport is $46,645


BMW 320i sedan
-heated seats
-Moonroof
-Lighting Package (Xenon)
-Sport Package
-Driver Assistance (rear view camera)

$42,295 after destination.

Anything else?

Let me build some Audis. Be right back.

I am surprised how expensive a C250 is after all the addons.

The BMW is very competitive. If you get the premium package and cold winter package you actually get even more features vs the CLA and it'll be closer to around $45,000.

Still very competitive. My only complaint is how boring the interior on the 320i looks.



To be fair with the sport package on the 320i I would assume it would handle better than the CLA 250 sport suspension. BMW knows how to make their M suspension well.

Until a AMG package comes out with the CLA...

Great information guys. I am going to sticky this even though it isn't official. It'll help people who are trying to decide if the CLA is right for them.

And here is the A4 just to compare

Audi A4
2.0 TFSI® Premium Plus: Multitronic® CVT with FrontTrak® front-wheel drive

-Navigation
-Sport Suspension

Price as built

$ 41,395

Sunroof and heated leather are standard. So is power seats and memory.
ipod, xenon, bluetooth : STANDARD

Mercedes needs to take some notes from Audi.

The A4 premium plus is very competitive having so many features standard. The performance is very comparable too. The only thing to note is that it is a CVT.

I don't see many people going with more than one package if any at all. I won't be.

The only options that really interest me are the

18" MB Wheel $500 (Gotta look pimp)
Leather Upholstery $1200 (Mandatory)
Rear Side Airbags $420 (Safety first)

I would love to get this but too damn expensive
Panorama Sunroof $1,480

What packages/options are you guys getting?

Yes, the Audi A3 is still in range of being attractive with its price. But there is not much of a market for hatchbacks in north america to really make a big impact. I dont think the A3 will be such a threat to the CLA. but not a bad car with the package it offers.

This will be a better comparison to the CLA 250 but the price is on the higher side. And i dont know about you guys but when ever i see the three letters "CVT" Im out faster than a speeding bullet. This transmission just ruins it for me.

A fully loaded CLA is just a shy bit over 40 thousand. That is not too bad. A full loaded C class is just as much.
So is it even worth it getting the CLA fully loaded if a fully loaded C Class can be bought for the same price?

the C-Class does look good too, maybe a bit better than the CLA.

Well the C Class is very conservatively styled, if that's what floats your boat. The C Class is smaller inside than the CLA too.

Err. Whatever works for you but I think the CLA is much better looking

Clearly the CLA looks way better. The C-Class still looks a bit outdated. If I seen a 2013 C-Class on the road I wouldn't believe it was a 2013 model. If it looked more like the E-Class then maybe it'd have a chance at looking better than the CLA.

Calm down guys.

its really personal preference. To me the C Class is more of a mature look and the CLA is more sporty and sleek. So it all depends...
