2021 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class Interior

The Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, one of the lowest-cost models in the automaker’s range, has a cabin that looks like it belongs to a Mercedes-Benz.

Embellished with a trio of circular air vents, the centre stack is clean and new. The front seats are pleasantly comfortable, but there is restricted headroom in the second row because of the car’s sloping roofline.

The Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class sedan offers 13.1 cubic feet of cargo space. That’s less room for cargo than in the outgoing model. Nevertheless, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz CLA provides more space for your gear than a competitor, which offers 12.3 cubic feet of cargo capacity.

Equipped with the new Mercedes-Benz infotainment system, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz features a touchpad-equipped steering wheel and a control pad mounted on the dashboard.

Overall, it is simple to use and customise the setup. Along with Bluetooth communication and an eight-speaker sound system, a 7.0-inch display is standard.

With Apple CarPlay and Android Automobile integration, all versions of the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class come with it. An upgraded Burmester audio system and SiriusXM satellite radio are included in the options list.

Should I buy a 10-year-old Mercedes?

Some people consider a 10-year-old Mercedes a possible money pit, and either they will not purchase the car at all, or they will just buy it at a low cost. Some people want a Benz badly enough to pay extra for a used one, assuming that a used one is better than buying a lower-status new car.
