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
