How the A-Class differs from the CLA

There will be many interested buyers trying to choose between the new A-Class and the CLA. They share many of the same design traits but Motor 1 has provided us with an in depth breakdown of how Mercedes has distinguished them from one another. https://www.motor1.com/news/300419/m...-class-vs-cla/

just design will divide people because I have seen this divide with people who can buy either the CLS or an E-Class, the only difference is now they have baby versions

Even though they share a lot of similarities, especially with the cabin design early interest is going to stem from those who simply want to have the latest model. In base guise the CLA is slightly more powerful but its also a bit larger.

They look quite different from the rear end and I prefer the diffuser that's been placed on the A Class. The more sloped roof line of the CLA has also had a noticeable impact on rear passenger space.

design aside, the A-Class has been sold for years overseas and now sold as a sedan in addition to the hatch
anyone who's been an enthusiast long enough will know this means far more support from aftermarket companies.

Is there really a need for tuning with the A35 and A45 models coming? I feel like those are going to take the A Class to peak performance.
