TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 2-Series coupe or convertible is proof that the formula BMW helped create still works. Mercedes takes a second aim at an entry-level sedan with the A-Class, and this time hits closer to the mark. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class is a compact luxury car with finesse. Its low price is justified in its small footprint and interior, but it still looks great.
