Pros
Generous list of standard features
Athletic handling instills confidence

Potent performance from the AMG CLA 45

Cons

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

In addition to a power boost to 385 horsepower, the C43 sees styling and content changes for 2019. A new grille, new wheel designs, and revised front and rear bumpers bring the C43's design in line with other AMG models. Inside, a digital gauge cluster becomes an option and a new sport steering wheel is standard. New wood and metal interior trimmings as well as optional AMG Performance seats with heat and ventilation are now offered.

Pros
Gorgeous cabin,
stunningly quick,
choice of three body styles.

Cons
Rocky ride,
adding options quickly inflates the price.

Pricey and on the slighter side of mid-size, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class drops a beautiful cockpit, huge dollops of safety, and effortless AMG brilliance into the sport-sedan mix.

Pros
Coupe, convertible, or sedan
A great-looking family
Powertrains range from great to GREAT
Best C-Class handling ever

Cons
Automatic-only
From $$ to $$$$
Tight rear seats
Shy on cargo space
Plug-in hybrid adds little
