2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA is a compact or a mid-size car. The CLA is 182.3 inches long, with a wheelbase of 106.3 inches–a little longer than today’s C-Class, which gives that car some room to grow when it moves to the U.S. as a 2015 model. In the CLA, the compact dimensions don’t affect the front passengers nearly as much as they do those in the back. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250′s front seats are Recaro-like in their shape–and they’re good ones, with great firm bolsters around the back and on the sides of the bottom cushion. They’re covered in a combination of MB-Tex synthetic leather and cloth on Edition 1 models and all MB-Tex or all leather on all other CLAs, depending on your wallet. The seats are adjustable for rake and position, with power adjustment for the driver and manual for the passenger seat, which moves via levers and wheels in the VW idiom. That’s to say, it’s a reach to get to the wheel that adjusts seatback angle.

Mercedes’ stated goal was to make the 2014 CLA feel “not like a front-drive car.” That’s a choice that could skew the CLA away from those not so young at heart, and it’s entirely intentional. Whether it’s front-drive or all-wheel drive, the CLA 250 is set up nearly in mono-spec form. All versions have electric power steering and all U.S. cars will come with the lower, shorter-sprung “sport” version of the CLA’s front-strut, four-link-rear suspension. An option to upgrade the standard 17-inch run-flat tires to 18-inch wheels (with or without summer tires and perforated disc brakes) are the only choices left to American drivers, at least at launch.
