2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA vs. 2019 Chevrolet Spark

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA is a stylish subcompact that is packed with plenty of interesting features. It is an entry-level luxury car but it is equipped with premium amenities, just like its more high-end brothers.

As a compact vehicle, the 2019 Chevrolet Spark is often mistaken to be just a mere small car with basic features and unimpressive performance. Surprisingly many people do find it appealing as an urban mini car. Let us find out from this comparison where the Spark can improve on in order to be at par with the standards of the CLA.

Design & Style

The poised exterior of the CLA is a classic design attribute from the brand. The diamond-block grille has the iconic Mercedes star badge. The exterior looked more premium with the addition of bright LED lamps. The upscale styling is also prominent with the new swept-back silhouette. The interior is not too flashy but looks attractive.

The Spark has a cheerful-looking exterior but that is about it. It lacks a sophisticated design that should match with the CLA. Its truncated tail, short overhangs, and a slightly longer wheelbase are the only elements that make it a proper city car.

Technology & Safety

For those who are not a fan of the Mercedes-Benz COMMAND infotainment system, there is an option to swap it for the new versions of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There is also a wide range of other customization options for the audio and navigation systems and the driver aids. This is nice because the user can truly gain from having an option to get only the features that are really essential according to the driver’s needs.

Spark has an improved infotainment system for this year. The brand added both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard and not just options. It also has the OnStar communications system from Chevrolet which already includes onboard Wi-Fi connectivity.

 Performance

Anyone will find the CLA smooth to drive with its 208 hp engine. It offers minimal sporty capabilities so it is expected to deliver a fun and lively drive. Its steering is just enough and is poised and controlled on stabilizing the car along twisty roads.

The 1.4-liter engine for all Spark variants is enough to get up to 98 hp and 94 lb-ft of torque. This is probably where the disappointment starts for the Spark since its competition offers so much more power.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Chevrolet Spark has a lot of improvements, especially in the tech side. It is frustrating that the engine has not improved as much so it became a huge disappointment. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA, on the other hand, has exceeded most expectations despite being on the entry-level segment.
