2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA vs. C-Class: Interior Design Differences

In both Mercedes-Benz coupes, you’re going to find sharp details and luxurious touches, such as the standard leatherette upholstery and luxury wood trim details, but in the C-Class coupe, you’ll find a sweeping console that divides the front seats to create a supremely true sport-coupe cockpit. The CLA coupe has a winglike dash, larger 8-in. slimline screen, and high-back power front sport seats to create a sporty yet comfortable cabin experience.

2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA vs. C-Class: Exterior Design Differences

If you are looking for the classic coupe design, the C-Class coupe is exactly what you need. With an aggressively sculpted exterior, the two-door C-Class coupe was designed with aerodynamics and head-turning style in mind. The CLA coupe, while equally breathtaking, has four doors and thus offers seating for five, as opposed to the C-Class coupe, which offers seating for four.

2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA vs. C-Class: Technology Features & Options

Both Mercedes-Benz luxury coupes are filled with technology meant to both amaze you and take your driving experience to a whole other level. A new 8-in. screen, Bluetooth® wireless audio streaming and HD Radio™ are found in every CLA coupe. In the C-Class coupe, you’ll discover truly remarkable audio quality with the standard FrontBass® system, which utilizes the rigid front frame members as resonance chambers for an under-dash subwoofer. The system also saves weight and frees up space in the cabins and doors.
