The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
A scaled-down CLS with turbocharged performance, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA proves the car world is shrinking--even at the luxury level. The 2014 BMW 2-Series takes the former 1-Series Coupe into more mature, well-equipped, design-forward territory.
