2019 BMW 4 Series vs 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class in Baton Rouge, LA

Have you been thinking about adding some extra exhilaration to your morning commute? If so, it’s hard to go wrong when you choose to get behind the wheel of the 2019 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe! Within this luxury sedan, you’ll find a host of accommodating amenities and enough power to really get your blood pumping. Before you visit Brian Harris BMW to see it in action, take a moment to review this comparison between the 4 Series and the 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.

Interior Comfort

Since you’re treating yourself for working so hard, you should be certain that the vehicle you choose offers outstanding comfort. Equipped with a standard ambient lighting system, the 2019 4 Series will make your daily drives more relaxing than ever before. In the 2018 CLA-Class, a comparable feature is only available if you spend more money on upgrades. Moreover, once you’re on the road, you and your passengers might feel a tad uncomfortable in the Mercedes-Benz’s limited 40.2 and 27.1 inches of front and rear legroom. Thankfully, the BMW has you covered with its spacious 42.2 and 33.7 inches for these dimensions. After this first round, the 4 Series looks to have assumed the lead!

Technology

For this next aspect, we’ll stick with the interior by examining the technology that lies within these two luxury sedans. First and foremost, arriving at any destination on time is easy to accomplish in the 2019 BMW 4 Series, as it comes with an intuitive navigation system as standard in all trims. On the other hand, the 2018 CLA-Class only provides you with navigation if you spring for a higher trim, thus requiring you to spend additional cash. As if that weren’t enough, the sedan from Mercedes-Benz might not be able to keep you as entertained as the 4 Series, given that its available Harman Kardon® sound system supplies just 450 watts of power. In comparison, the Harman Kardon® stereo in the BMW pumps out your favorite tunes with an outstanding 600 watts!

Performance

Now for what you really came here for—performance. The standard 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine at the heart of the BMW 4 Series should energize you every time you head out the door for a spin, generating a robust 248-hp. Furthermore, you shouldn’t struggle to accelerate onto I-10, thanks to its spirited 8-speed automatic transmission with Sport and Manual shift modes. When put to the test, the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class just isn’t on par with the 4 Series. Despite boasting a similar 2.0 turbo system, it only manages to come up with 208-hp. Plus, it comes paired to a less-responsive 7-speed automatic transmission, meaning that you might get left behind.  

We hope this model comparison of the 2019 BMW 4 Series vs 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class in Baton Rouge, LA, has demonstrated why we feel that the luxury vehicle from BMW is the better choice. To decide for yourself, drop by Brian Harris BMW for a test drive. Our staff can’t wait to meet you!

My service advisor Fred was really helpful. I’m really happy I got the wheel and tire protection package when I bought my bmw. Between having that and a good service advisor, I haven’t had any headaches using bmw service. The only negative thing I could even think of would be that the free cold drinks could be a little colder...

He answered every question I had to the best of his ability. I would definitely recommend this dealership to anybody across the nation!

I’m a Mercedes woman at heart, but I purchased my first BMW ever from them, and I can say that I feel so confident about my purchase. I got an amazing deal on a great vehicle. Thank you Wade and the team at Brian Harris BMW!

IMy scheduled appointment was made around my schedule. I was greeted with respect as I pulled up at the scheduled time. I was checked in immediately. I latter received a video detailing the work on my vehicle and how everything looked on my car by the mechanic. When the worked was completed, I received a call and a text to pick up my car with the charge for service. I was humbled by the attention given to me and the service of my car. I am pleased with the service of staff at BMW in the service department.
