Expert reviews: 

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.

Cons

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

The 2018 Audi A6 is a conservatively styled, but handsome mid-size luxury sedan. It lacks the bells and whistles others now offers, but holds firm to its foundation as a competent performer.

Pros
Smart interior
Good powertrain options
Uprated V-6
Standard navigation
Great safety record

Cons
Competes with A7 in top trims
Snug rear seat
No alternative powertrains
Interior can be busy

The 2018 Audi A6 should be suffering from diminished appeal. After all, it's been kicking around without a full redesign for six model years now while its prime competitors have been completely redone in the past year. It's old news. Well, that might be true in terms of attracting attention, but in the end, the A6's appeal has in fact diminished little. This well-rounded luxury sedan continues to deliver exactly what shoppers in this segment are seeking: room, features, luxury and performance in abundance.

PROS
Roomy interior finished in high-quality materials
Powerful engines that also achieve good fuel economy
Intuitive technology interface
Well-balanced ride and handling

CONS
Restrained styling verging on anonymous
Doesn't offer Audi's latest tech
