2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA vs. 2019 Audi A3

Among German car manufacturers, both Audi and Mercedes-Benz are among the most sought-after. After all, these companies are known to be quite ambitious with every luxury car that they introduce year after year. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA and the 2019 Audi A3 are popular luxury entry-level vehicles. Here is a comparison to see why many people want to get their hands on these cars.

Design & Style

Designed to capture attention, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA has got to be the one of the most aerodynamic cars today. It may have a coupe profile but it comfortably seats five people inside. The build quality and styling of its interior is impeccable. The surfaces feel upscale as a luxury car should be.

The 2019 Audi A3 is designed to look athletic. It has the signature Singleframe grille that looks prominent. For its interior, the seats are treated with expensive leather giving it a polished look.

Technology & Safety

The CLA has a lot of customizable tech from its lighting displays down to the impressive audio system. The infotainment display may be controlled using touchscreen, buttons, and through a touchpad. Connectivity is via the latest smartphone integration with the addition of the new USB-C ports. The driver aids are very sophisticated. The Active Brake-Assist, for example, uses radar and may be set to initiate braking should there be a need to.

The Audi virtual cockpit controls the infotainment system of the Audi A3. It has the MMI touch that uses handwriting-recognition technology to navigate through maps instead of selecting through the menu. The driver aids of the A3 are headlined by the Audi pre sense that enables visual and acoustic warnings for the driver.


Powered by a 2.0-liter engine, the CLA can get as much as 375 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque for the AMG® CLA 45 trim. It is quick to respond and is remarkably efficient. The steering is nicely weighted and delivers a sharp performance even at quick turns. It can go from 0-60 mph at only 4.1 seconds.

The A3, on the other hand, can have up to 220 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. This is enough to experience a noteworthy performance that is both fun and reassuring. Given that it has a lower power than the CLA, it can still go as fast as 5.8 seconds to go from 0-60 mph.

The Bottom Line

Although both vehicles can get high marks in terms of style, design, and technology, the CLA is noticeably more agile in performance. This is attributed to the option to have the higher-performance engine of the AMD CLA 45 trim. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA is significantly better than the 2019 Audi A3 since it is faster, looks nicer, and you will have premium features intended for its price.
