Which one is right for me?

Both models here have a lot to offer. It’s clear to see from the table above that the CLA is the more fiscally-responsible option, so drivers on a budget may want to steering that direction. When it comes to variety, though, the C-Class stands out with far more options to choose from. While the CLA only comes in two options (the base CLA 250 and the performance-enhanced AMG® CLA 45), the C-Class comes in sedan, coupe, and cabriolet options with multiple engine options to choose from in each. Additionally, the base C 300 comes with more horsepower than the 2018 model, and upgrading to a higher trim level will only give you a quicker engine and throttle response. Also for 2019 comes a larger optional 10.25-inch infotainment screen which houses all your infotainment and navigation needs. Both vehicles come with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility so that you can connect your smartphone and access all the features right there on the infotainment screen. Some of the many features available in both models include power driver seats with memory, Remote Start, an in-car Wi-Fi hotspot, genuine wood trim, and much more.

We don’t expect you to make your decision based solely off the information displayed here, so come on down to Mercedes-Benz of Indianapolis to check out both models for yourself!
