2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250: Upgrade the Drive


Instead of a car, think of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 as an invitation to the Mercedes-Benz brand. Available now at Mercedes-Benz of Silver Spring, it’s the automaker’s way of setting out the welcome mat for those who aren’t already acquainted with their unique blend of performance and luxury.

You’ll have two driveline choices with the 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 (either FWD or 4MATIC® AWD), both of which feature the same powertrain. That powertrain consists of a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine that gets 208 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque, coupled to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The engine delivers peak torque even at the lower end of the RPM range, making for great performance. Indeed, it goes from zero to 60 in a sprightly 6.9 seconds.

With one exception, the 2018 model looks much like the 2017 model before it. That exception is the Ice Edition trim, which takes styling cues from the Mercedes-Benz AMG® CLA 45 but leaves out the AMG internals. It features a unique color scheme, LED headlights, and some elements nicked from the Premium Package as standard equipment.

Speaking of standard (and optional) equipment, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 is respectably equipped. Safety features include active cruise control, a rear camera, lane keep assist, blind-spot assist, and active brake assist. For comfort and convenience, we suggest the premium harman/kardon®* audio system, as well as the multimedia package that includes navigation, Android Auto®, and Apple CarPlay®.

Of course, one ought not to merely experience a car via words and pictures. If you live in College Park or Columbia, MD, set out for 3301 Briggs Chaney Rd and Mercedes-Benz of Silver Spring today.
