2016 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 Sport 4Matic Shooting Brake review

Audi A3 sedan v Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class : Comparison Review

Business culture dictates that a hatchback isn’t as corporate as an equivalent sedan, so luckily for junior executives with sub-$50,000 purchasing power there are new options – the Audi A3 sedan and Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class. Never before have premium German manufacturers offered a sedan variant below the medium-sized BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class that cost around $15,000 more in entry-level specification...
