Throbby V-8
No-fuss V-6

Still competes on in-car tech

The 2018 Chrysler 300 ranked #4 in Large Cars. Currently the Chrysler 300 has a score of 8.6 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 56 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

For 2018, Chrysler has shuffled the 300's features and trim level names, but otherwise the car remains mechanically the same. The V8 engine was previously available across the board, but it is now offered on just two trim levels.

PROS
Cabin is quiet, with an upscale look and feel
Available V8 engine suits the car's personality well
Touchscreen technology interface is easy to use

CONS
V8 engine now limited to just two trim levels
Hard to see out the back because of small rear window and thick roof pillars

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class ranked #18 in Luxury Small Cars. Currently the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class has a score of 7.7 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 25 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Lively engine with excellent fuel economy
Agile handling
Large, convenient trunk

Cons
Cumbersome infotainment system and controls
Small back seat
Run-flat tires create stiff, noisy ride

By: 
usnews.com

For 2018, the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class returns largely unchanged.If it were the only sedan in its class, we'd be inclined to agree. But there are some similarly priced vehicles out there, and they don't have the same drivability, comfort and space issues that the CLA does.

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

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

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class is a gorgeous shape in an impressive package. Equally impressive? Its ability to get expensive, even despite being the most affordable sedan in Mercedes' stable.

Pros
Sleek silhouette
Responsive turbo engines
Supportive front seats
Andriod Auto/Apple CarPlay ready
Big, 8.0-inch infotainment screen

Cons
Small rear seat
Can get pricey
Stiff ride
Too eager to upshift
Difficult entry/exit in rear
