Upscale interior with easy-to-use controls
Well-balanced ride and handling

Cons
Less backseat headroom than in the 3 Series sedan
Heavier and costlier than similar sedan competitors

Although its less-swoopy platform mate—the 3-Series—has been redesigned for 2020, the 4-Series Gran Coupe continues on with only minor changes this year. A revised lower front bumper, darker-tinted taillamps, two new wheel designs, and high-gloss black trim around the grille give the Gran Coupe an ever-so-slightly freshened appearance. BMW is now offering its Active Driving Assistant as standard; the driver-assistance suite includes lane-departure warning, automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and forward-collision warning.

Pros
Good fuel economy, peppy engines, cleverly integrated hatchback.

Cons
Muted handling, big blind spots, Apple CarPlay requires monthly subscription.

Pros
Generous list of standard features
Athletic handling instills confidence
Luxury badging without the premium price
Potent performance from the AMG CLA 45

Cons
Engine and transmission are slow to respond at low speeds
The ride can be rather stiff
Rear seats are confining
Some interior elements aren't up to luxury-car standards

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.

Pros
Striking design
Responsive powertrains
Comfortable front seats
Good infotainment with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto added
Confident ride

Cons
Almost nonexistent rear seat
Price tag gets crazy quickly
Unforgiving ride
Hard to enter and exit
Busy transmission
