2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA vs. 2019 Fiat 500e

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA is admittedly one of the most stylish cars. Surprisingly, it is one of the least expensive Benz being sold but the premium features are up to par with its pricier siblings. It is an entry-level luxury car that is packed with finesse.

Compact crossovers are hot and the option to have electric versions only made it more appealing. The 2019 Fiat 500e is an attractive example. It is a classic example of how electric vehicle has become a thing today. It comes with more functionality and power despite its diminutive size.

Design & Style

The CLA has a poised exterior expected of a proper Mercedes-Benz. The iconic star badge is stamped on the diamond block grille. The attractive exterior also has premium-looking LED lamps. Furthermore, the swept-back silhouette added another layer of upscale styling.

The 500e looks stylish, an unlikely description to an EV. The grille is styled to look more modern, although it does have the same stubby snout and circular headlights. The interior is bordering to bland but saved by the choice of colors.

Technology & Safety

The COMAND® infotainment system of the CLA may be swapped for stand-alone smartphone integration. The Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will be enough to get everyone entertained while riding the CLA. As for the driver aids, standard features are more than enough to get a safe ride. It already includes a rearview camera, forward collision warning, and the new driver attention monitor. There are also optional features if you are interested in the latest driver aids. Available options include adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and parking sensors, among others.

The infotainment system of the 500e is literally basic. It has a 5-inch touchscreen display, an Alpine audio system, a USB port, and an AUX jack for connectivity. What also lacks is a set of active safety features.


The CLA drives smooth and confident with its 208 hp 2.0-liter engine. It is fun to drive with its sporty capabilities. The 7-speed dual-clutch automatic can tame the engine without any problem and is recommended for those who prefer a spirited driving.

Unlike hybrids that have engines to help with performance, the 500e is run by pure electric power. This means a lower hp at only 111 and only up to 147 lb-ft of torque.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Fiat 500e is not a great EV for its poor performance. It does, however, get high marks for being an enthusiastic compact car. It is actually entertaining to drive as it is quick for an EV. No matter how you sugarcoat it, the 500e is no match to the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA. The latter is just impressive with all the essentials of a luxury car—decent power, posh styling, and customizable tech features.
