Audi A4 vs. Mercedes-Benz CLA250 Coupe on Performance

A major point of concern for luxury car buyers today is whether the vehicle they're purchasing performs as well as it ought to for the large initial investment. So we looked at the all-new CLA250 and the 2017 Audi A4 and we noticed some staggering differences.

The 2017 Audi A4 comes standard with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder aluminum-alloy turbocharged/TFSI engine that produces up to 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. Paired with a standard seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission with front-wheel drive, this vehicle is a dream to drive with fast and smooth transitions through every gear. The vehicle has a top track speed of 130 mph and an acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.1 seconds.

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 Coupe is competitive, but the numbers just don't match up. The vehicle comes standard with a comparably sized 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbo engine paired with a 7-speed DCT dual-clutch automatic transmission.

But here's the disappointing part. The power tops out at just 208 horsepower. And the acceleration speed from 0 to 60 mph is 6.9 seconds, a major difference from the Audi A4.

But don't take our word for it. Test drive the Audi A4 at your local Audi dealer near Conshohocken, West Chester, and Devon and see the difference yourself.
