The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.8
6.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. The 2019 2-Series coupe or convertible is proof that the formula BMW helped create still works.
