2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA vs. 2019 Mini Cooper

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA is an efficient performer and can easily outclass other small cars. It received several improvements throughout the years. These days, the CLA is known to entice buyers with its latest tech and refined performance.

The 2019 Mini Cooper is the typical Mini with its distinct styling. Only a light refresh was added for this year if only to upgrade its small and classy stature.

Design & Style

The CLA is a shapely sedan. Its diamond-block grille bears the iconic badge of the brand. Its sexy silhouette is balanced by its swoopy design. The interior is slightly showing its age but the rendition is still sophisticated especially with the uncluttered cabin layout.

Cooper’s design is mostly based on nostalgia. Although there are design changes over the years, it is still cartoonish. It seems to be committed to achieving a retro design that looks fun and appealing. It follows a circular theme on its interior with a light ring on the infotainment screen and toggle switches for the accessories.

Technology & Safety

A pair of digital displays sit on the CLA’s dashboard for its infotainment. It has the COMAND® system but it can be switched for both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It can also work with the latest Me Connect system to access various automated remote features. Most of the active safety features are optional but it does come with standard driver aids too.

The standard infotainment system across all trims of the Cooper comes with a 6.5-inch display. The navigation package has an option for an 8.8-inch screen that is useful for viewing real-time traffic updates. It can also be equipped with an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot. The active safety equipment, however, is all expensive additions. It also scores low on different safety tests.


There are two variants for the CLA’s engine. One can get up to 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque and the other one can produce as much as 375 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. You are basically given the choice to pick which kind of performance you would like for the CLA. Both engines, however, can deliver an effortless acceleration and the driver will enjoy the quick-shifting transmission.

For the Cooper, it can have either a 134-hp engine or the sportier 189-hp engine. Front-wheel drive is a standard for both engine types. Although it is fun to drive, the Cooper has a go-kart handling and may deliver a harsh ride when driven on rough road conditions.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Mini Cooper is a cute vehicle, no question about that. Its nostalgic appeal made a lot of fans but if you are after a good ride, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA is the one to have. The latest CLA is sexy to look at but it has a monstrous performance when compared against Cooper.
