2021 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class Review, Pricing, and Specs

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class received a massive redesign in 2020 so we believe the latest 2021 models will have minor changes. Mercedes-Benz has added blind-spot monitoring and ambient interior lighting to the standard features list of this 2021 CLA-Class, and the CLA’s MBUX infotainment system now features the Interior Assistant, which allows users to interact with the system using gesture controls.

The CLA250 comes with front-wheel drive, while all-wheel drive is standard on the CLA250 4Matic. The latter trim is a great choice for those who travel on wet, slippery roads, but we think everyone else will be happy with the CLA250. That car rides on 18-inch wheels and comes with exterior features such as automatic LED headlights, rear fog lamps, a sunroof, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and heated power-adjustable side view mirrors with integrated turn signals.

Handling is reasonably nimble and the ride is refined. It’s not particularly roomy, especially in the rear seat, but cargo space is more than enough for most use cases. Overall, the CLA250 represents the modern Mercedes-Benz experience in a bite-sized package.

Though it’s one of the least expensive models in the automaker’s range, the 2021 CLA-class boasts a cabin that looks like it belongs in a Mercedes-Benz. The center stack is clean and modern, embellished with a trio of circular air vents. The front seats are pleasantly spacious, but there’s limited headroom in the second row due to the car’s sloping roofline. This sedan provides 13.1 cubic feet of cargo space. That’s less cargo space than in the outgoing model.

Sport front seats feature deeper side bolsters to offer enhanced lateral support. With Black or Macchiato Beige MB-Tex upholstery, the seats feature adjustable head restraints. With all other upholstery choices, the four outboard seats feature racing-inspired integrated head restraints.

When it comes to driver-assistance features, automated emergency braking is standard.
