2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Vs. 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA

2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA

Mercedes-Benz impresses yet again with the latest iterations of their model lines for the 2020 year. Whether a class is fully redesigned, such as the 2020 CLA, or simply updated, like the 2020 C-Class, you can be sure you’ll find a host of the latest cutting-edge automotive innovations inside. Coupled with their tried-and-true style and long-term experience, the sensation inside a modern Mercedes-Benz vehicle is one to behold.

The 2020 C-Class comes in three different body styles – sedan, coupe and convertible – while the 2020 CLA only comes in the form of a coupe. Many insist that the CLA is actually a sedan, though, so we just went ahead and compared the full C-Class with it. We’ll leave you to make the final decision.

2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA Class

The CLA is fully redesigned for 2020, a move that blesses the class with new looks, more power, and expanded interior space. It also receives the gift of MBUX, the automaker’s cutting-edge, class-leading infotainment system. As a whole, the redesign kicks off the second generation of the CLA. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA brings a generous list of standard features and the MB experience at a lower starting price.

As mentioned above, though Mercedes-Benz calls the 2020 CLA a coupe, others insist it’s a sedan. Whichever it is, it’s a little sleeker and more powerful than the A-Class sedan, emphasizing tech and style. It also gets up to an impressive 382 horsepower on the AMG iteration.

2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

The long-loved C-Class remains part of the class’s fourth generation, introduced in 2015, for the 2020 model year. But it continues to stand out thanks to its lovely interior, exciting features, and striking styling. It should be noted that its touchpad infotainment is a bit more outdated, however.

For 2020, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class gains more power on the hybrid option, a digital instrument panel, 18-inch wheels, and the standardization of most of what was in last year’s Premium package.
