Special features for 2016

The Mercedes-Benz CLA is the German automaker's attempt to compete with the likes of the diminutive Audi A3 and the BMW 1-series. As the price of gasoline continues to rise, compact luxury cars get more and more popular. Buyers will continue to want all of the technology and luxury features of larger cars without the size or fuel consumption. Mercedes-Benz hopes that attractive styling, a low base price, an upscale name and lots of luxury know-how will be enough to convince buyers to take a serious look at the CLA.
