Dare to Compare Mercedes-Benz CLA

The New Mercedes-Benz CLA Competes with the Toyota Camry

It might seem strange to compare the Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe to the Toyota Camry Sedan. But, when you compare numbers, the prices of many supposed “economy” vehicles from mainstream brands match or exceed those of popular entry-level luxury models. So, can Murrieta and Menifee drivers expect more if they pay more? To answer that question, the team at Mercedes-Benz of Temecula has put together the following comparison, outlining the differences between the 2018 CLA 250 and 2018 Toyota Camry XSE and XSE V6.

Enjoy Luxury at a Great Price

The 2018 Toyota Camry has a lot to offer Los Angeles drivers, such as standard Toyota Safety Sense and optional red leather upholstery. But why get a Toyota when you can get a luxury brand like Mercedes-Benz for around the same price? You’ll enjoy luxe features like a dual-clutch transmission, HD Radio, four drive modes, and memory-adjustable front seats. Not to mention, the CLA features a pre-collision system with automatic braking and an optional Interior Package with leather upholstery, multi-color ambient cabin lighting, and more.
