2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA vs. 2019 Audi A5


The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA has been equipped with no less than the most energetic and fuel-efficient engine ever to grace the world of luxury small cars. It has plenty of cargo space, too, thus making it a great ride especially for long trips.

With the launch of the 2019 Audi A5, there also comes some changes for it. Now, the manual transmission option is no longer available. There is a new RS 5 Sportback included.

Design & Style

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA is a car that seats up to five adults. Seats are wrapped with a standard synthetic leather upholstery sure to bring comfort to users. The cabin uses upscale materials, a trademark in every Mercedes-Benz vehicle. The cargo space is larger too when compared to all its rivals, including the 2019 Audi A5.

A sporty car that is ready to take you to tough terrains, the 2019 Audi A5 presents a set of huge features in terms of design. It has 18-inch performance summer tires that includes a carbon fiber trunk lid spoiler. Inside, there are ventilated car seats, heated steering wheels, and stainless steel pedal caps. It has an undersized rear seat and trunk, though.

Technology & Safety

The CLA has a great set of technology features, including the infotainment system that has now integrated smartphone capabilities like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. There are air bags and a rearview camera made for everyone’s safety. The list of driver aids include forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, driver drowsiness monitoring, active brake assist, and rain-sensing windshield wipers.

The 2019 Audi A5 comes with a 10-speaker audio system, USB ports, and a satellite radio. It also has been gifted with a user-friendly infotainment system. Safety-wise, features include those of pre-collision and post-collision safety systems, stability and traction control, blind spot monitoring, and emergency braking assist. Other features come with a price.


Reaching a maximum output of 248 horsepower, the Audi A5 is defeated by the CLA. The latter can reach up to a maximum output of 375 horsepower. It is also more fuel efficient since the CLA can rake scores of up to 37mpg for highway driving, whereas the A5 only reaches a maximum of 34mpg for highway driving. For city driving, the CLA scores 24 mpg, while the A5 reaches only up to 23mpg.

The Bottom Line

With a great charm that is sophisticated enough to attract buyers, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA is truly deserving of all the attention that it gets. It has a powerful and fuel-efficient engine, plus it is equipped with technologies that are worth enjoying.
