2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 vs. 2018 Mercedes-Benz C 300

The 2018 CLA 250 Coupe and 2018 C 300 Sedan are two of the most popular models offered by Mercedes-Benz—and with good reason. But which of these luxury five-seaters is the right pick for you? To help San Bernardino drivers decide, we’ve put together the following Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 vs. C 300 comparison. Look below to see how the CLA and C-Class stack up to each other!

The 2018 CLA 250 Coupe has a starting MSRP of $32,700. On the other hand, the 2018 C 300 Sedan starts at $40,250. As the less expensive vehicle, the CLA 250 isn’t as powerful or luxurious as the C 300, but it’s more fuel-efficient. For roughly $7,550 more, Eastvale and Fontana shoppers can get the C 300 Sedan’s stronger engine and wider feature set.
