2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA vs. 2019 Audi A3

Energetic, refined, and fuel-efficient – these are great things you will find in the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA base trim. It is also gifted with a large trunk space that can carry your belongings more efficiently.

In the case of the 2019 Audi A3, you will find some features that are worth notable too. Some of its features have been shuffled on various trim levels as part of its lineup.

Design & Style

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA is a car that can seat up to five passengers. Its seats come with synthetic leather upholstery, which is responsible for providing comfort to its users. The entire cabin feels upscale too, and this is a proof that the Mercedes-Benz meets expectations in terms of design and style. You will find a large amount of cargo space in this car too.

In the case of the 2019 Audi A3, one thing you will notice is that it seems too old for a new version. This is because it decided to carry the same look that its predecessor used to have. Although it has LED headlights and taillights, there is not really much to look forward too. The grille looks slightly bigger than its predecessors, which eats up plenty of space on its exterior.

Technology & Safety

The 2019 CLA is packed with a remarkable set of technology features. It has a reliable infotainment system, which is now paired with smartphone integration via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. You will find air bags and a rearview camera as standard features for safety features in this ride. More advanced driver aids like forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, driver drowsiness monitoring, active brake assist, and rain-sensing windshield wipers, are found standard in this car too.

As for the Audi A3, it is sad to note that there are only a few things worth taking note of when it comes to technologies. One of which is the fact that it has a 4G LTE hotspot provided to get WiFi connections. Lane keeping assist and adaptive cruise control are the only standard driver aids for this car. All others require additional investment.


The 2019 CLA has an engine that can generate up to 375 horsepower. It scores fuel efficient ratings of 24 mpg for city driving and 37mpg for highway driving. The 2019 Audi A3, on the other hand, is gifted with a 2.0-liter engine under its hood. This allows it to get as much as 220 horsepower under the hood. Fuel efficiency marks for the A3 are pegged at 35mpg on the highway.

The Bottom Line

While the 2019 Audi A3 has that brand, it does not exceed expectations that the CLA is ready to offer. The latter is picture perfect and has responsive technologies that car lovers will truly admire. The potent and fuel-efficient engine in the Mercedes-Benz also defeats that of what the Audi can offer.
