2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA vs. 2019 Mazda3

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA and the 2019 Mazda 3 are two close competitors known for their long list of features on offer. While CLA offers refined performance, Mazda 3 is equipped with a nice interior. Below is a comparison to highlight the key differences between these models.

Design & Style

The 2019 Mazda 3 is a compact car with a seating capacity of up to 5 passengers, but the overall interior space is compromised with little legroom and headroom. Taller folks can have a tough time on longer trips. However, the quality of materials used inside is pretty good, and the overall fit and finishing is above average.

The 2019 Mercedes Benz-CLA is quite impressive in terms of interior space and support. The cabin comes standard with synthetic leather upholstery and plush seats. The legroom is fine in both the rows, and you cannot complain about the headroom as well. The interior feels classy and stylish, with some exceptional upgrades on offer.

Technology & Safety

The 2019 Mazda 3 comes with a redesigned infotainment system that has eliminated the touch screen functionality. The base sedan does not provide Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, while other key features such as satellite radio, 12-speaker Bose premium sound system, proximity keyless entry and dual-zone automatic climate control. The hatchback model adds features like blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, driver drowsiness monitoring, adaptive cruise control and automatic high beams.

Critics are divided when it comes to discussing the tech features of Mercedez-Benz CLA, but the overall intuitiveness of the system is highly praised. One can easily get comfortable with the controls, within the first use. You have all the basic amenities available, as you would expect from a luxury car. Safety features include a rearview camera, rain-sensing windshield wipers, active brake assist, driver drowsiness monitoring and emergency braking.


The 2019 Mazda 3 is powered by 4-cylinder 2.5-liter engine that can ramp up to 186 HP. This car is very light and fails to deliver strong performance. Being paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission, it does help somewhat with fuel efficiency. On another hand, CLA gets a top rating for its engines. The base model offers quick acceleration with a 208-HP rating and is more authoritative than most rivals.  It is also better in terms of fuel economy.

The Bottom Line

The newly launched 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA boasts comfortable interior, spacious seating and exciting performance. Unlike Mazda 3, it doesn’t fall short in terms of tech features, and its infotainment technology is quite convenient to use. If you are a car buyer, this vehicle should be on your radar as the next purchase.
