5 reasons to buy the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250

1. Peppy engine

While the CLA250 is the entry-level model of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, it delivers more than enough zip under the hood for most drivers. This is a slick sedan that's much more than just a pretty face. It has a 208-hp turbocharged four-cylinder engine, giving you the power you need whether you're zipping around the city, winding through country lanes, or hitting the open road. It also achieves an EPA-estimated 30 combined mpg, which is a major boon for buyers.

2. Technology-forward features

As a luxury vehicle brand, Mercedes-Benz doesn't disappoint when it comes to features. The 2014 CLA250 comes with multiple tech benefits like an infotainment system with a 5.8-inch display, Bluetooth® connectivity, navigation, and Mercedes' own mbrace2 telematics system. The latter creates true connectivity within the car, offering open internet access as well as its own custom version of everyday apps.

These apps are remotely updated via the cloud to ensure they're up-to-date at all times. Plus, they're designed to provide the best utility without being a distraction while driving. It's a win-win for the modern driver.

3. Luxurious interior

It's no surprise that a sedan as cool-looking as the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 is equally handsome on the inside. The car comes with leatherette sports seating as standard, with memory and heat settings. The materials used within the cabin are high-end and enjoyable to both touch and look at. In the rear, there are two full sets of LATCH connectors for child seating and an upper tether anchor in the middle, so don't be fooled by the car's appearance – it's as practical as it is attractive.

4. Agile

While the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 doesn't have AWD (that only comes with the CLA45 AMG), it's still completely at home on the open road. It copes beautifully with sharp bends and moves with confidence during overtaking maneuvers. The brakes are tweaked for performance, making them pleasingly responsive, which can be a real benefit during changeable city driving especially. Additionally, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 features an automatic stop-start function which turns the engine off when the car isn't in motion.

5. Plenty of driver aids

When out on the road, you want to know that you're in safe hands; your car should give you peace of mind. Fortunately, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 comes with some great driver aids that do just this, including adaptive cruise control, collision prevention assist, attention assist (which monitors your drowsiness and takes the initiative to correct potentially dangerous driving patterns), and blind spot monitoring as standard. This car is determined to put technology to its best use for the benefit of those inside it, and these brilliant driver aids are one way to prioritize passengers.
