That’s why we are comparing two popular models of the Mercedes-Benz lineup: the CLA Coupe, and the C-Class Coupe. For the purpose of this comparison, we are going to be looking at the base trims of each model. That means you’ll be seeing the space, power, and performance of the 2019 CLA 250 Coupe, which will be compared to the 2019 C 300 Coupe. Let’s get started!
