2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA vs. 2018 Honda Accord

The Mercedes-Benz CLA was designed to target the segment that was looking for a sub-compact sedan with a little more to offer in terms of performance and luxury than what was available in the segment. In the CLA, a driver can expect a smooth and powerful ride with attention to detail that is the trademark of Mercedes-Benz.

The 2010 Honda Accord is a mid-sized sedan that comes with a variety of engine sizes. The largest is the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The Accord also comes with a hybrid variety for those conscious about reducing CO2 emissions.

Design & Style

The CLA combines sporty elegance with the practical design of a four-door sedan. With the detailed styling inside and ergonomically designed dashboard, one feels at home behind the wheel of the CLA. Its exterior is designed to stand out and the sweeping lines along the sides accentuate this aggressive sporty design.

The Honda Accord is a tastefully designed car but is no match for the Mercedes-Benz CLA. The cabin is comfortable but doesn’t have the distinctive touch of the CLA that sets it apart. Other than that, the car is quite roomy and can comfortably seat five people. It has a pretty large trunk as well.  For its class, the Accord comes with a relatively quiet cabin and a comfortable solid drive.

Technology & Safety

The Mercedes-Benz CLA offers a host of modern safety features such as driver assist package. This includes lane assist features, collision warning sensors among many others. You can connect your phone to the car via a number of features such as Apple CarPlay among others.

The 2018 accord remain largely unchanged from the 2018 version. It comes with adaptive cruise control and automatic high beam headlights among other features.


The Mercedes-Benz CLA comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that delivers a smooth and powerful performance. You also get great economy on the gas as this nifty but luxurious car can deliver between 23 and 24 MPG in city driving.

The 2018 Honda Accord, on the other hand, comes in a variety of engines with the top of the range being the 2.0-liter version. The Accord delivers great mileage but doesn’t have the extra thrill that comes with the Mercedes-Benz CLA.

The Bottom Line

The Mercedes-Benz CLA is a winner in almost all categories on this. It’s luxury features, styling, and performance are well above that of the Honda Accord. The Mercedes-Benz CLA also comes with a host of technology features that the Accord lacks. All said the Mercedes-Benz CLA is a much better car than the Honda Accord.
