*European models shown.

Mercedes-Benz has been super busy making changes to their lineup for the 2020 model year. First was the release of the all-new A-Class earlier in 2019 and then news of the all-new GLB, which is set to be released sometime in late 2019. With these new classes of vehicles available, there are also all-new models released within their respective classes. For the CLA, we’ll be seeing a new sporty AMG® CLA 35 Coupe that has some exceptional performance features as well as better interior technology features than the AMG® CLA 45 in 2019. For the A-Class, an all-new AMG® A 35 Sedan will also be released with the same engine as the AMG® CLA 35 Coupe. Which is a better choice for you? Take a look at the comparisons between the two in the table below!

Highlights in the new AMG® CLA and A-Class

You’ll probably notice from the table above that these two share a lot of similarities, so how do you decide between them? you really can’t go wrong with either, but for drivers looking for the more sleek, sporty exterior profile, the AMG® CLA 35 Coupe may be the better choice. The coupe body style gives it a sloping rear profile that is expected off a sports car. With the AMG® CLA 35 Coupe, you’ll also get 18-inch AMG® alloy wheels and an AMG® Sport Suspension that add to the sporty profile.

The AMG® A 35 Sedan, meanwhile, may not resemble a sports car quite as much at first glance, but don’t be fooled. Despite the sedan body type, the AMG® A 35 still hosts most of the same performance features found in the AMG® CLA 35. It has some pretty slick extras with the likes of a Race-Start functionality, five different driving modes with AMG DYNAMIC SELECT®, and it offers a few different packages that allow you to customize it to your liking.

We haven’t yet received word on what to expect for a starting price for each, but we’re guessing they will probably be pretty close in price just as the 2019 CLA 250 and 2019 A-Class sedan are.
