The essence of a sports car is in the performance, and both of these two options deliver big time. Despite both coming in with a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four engine, the CLA 250 gets more horsepower (as seen in the table below). Additionally, you won’t have to pay a luxurious price tag to own it either. The CLA 250 has an MSRP of over $4,500 less than the XE, but you’re not really giving up anything for the lower cost.
