2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA vs 2018 Audi A3

These days, it’s getting harder and harder for vehicles to stand out. As luxury models offer sportier and more high-tech features, drivers have plenty of worthy options at their disposal. That said, if you’re looking for an affordable luxury vehicle, that still offers all of the specs and features you want, you’ve come to the right place. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA checks all the boxes, while still staying affordable. But don’t just take our word for it, see how it fares against a top competitor like the Audi A3.

In our comparison of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA vs the 2018 Audi A3, you’ll see that the CLA offers the better value. Though it comes with a higher price tag than the A3, it more than makes up for it in terms of specs and features.
