2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA vs. 2015 Lexus IS 250 Sylvania OH & Toledo
2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA
2015 Lexus IS 250
The compact four-door luxury sedan segment is filled with a range of options that are not only impressive, but affordable as well, and for that reason, the vehicles that reside in the class continues to become one of the most sought-after options on the market. Seeing as the class is one of the most popular, it’s also one of the most competitive. Every single one of the offerings provide features and capabilities that are seemingly identical, however, with a closer look, it’s clear that there are a couple of standouts. At the top of the class are the CLA and the IS 250, both of which are great options, but only one of which has the ability to dominate the entire segment.
Power & Performance
In the power department, the CLA offers up as much as 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, which is much higher than the 204 hp and 185 lb-ft of twist that comes from the Lexus IS 250. The ratings are especially impressive considering that the CLA engine only employs four cylinders while the powertrain of the IS 250 has a total of six.
Advantages of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA
Seeing as the CLA has two fewer cylinders, it’s able to do a lot more with a lot less. When traveling on the highway, it’s able to stretch a gallon of gas as far as 32 miles, which is further than the IS, which is only able to achieve a highway fuel economy rating of 30 mpg. The increase in efficiency is somewhat of a surprise as the CLA250 takes all of its power and directs it to all four of the wheels, rather than to the back two wheels like the IS 250 does. However, even with all four wheels in motion, the CLA has no troubles returning fuel economy ratings that help to keep you on the road for longer.
To top it all off, the CLA comes at a price that is significantly lower than the Lexus IS 250. As it is the most affordable Mercedes-Benz in the lineup, you can rest assured that you don’t have to break the bank in order to take advantage of all that it has to offer.
