Both the 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA and the 2019 BMW 2 Series offer affordable entry to the world of luxury cars in the Beckley area. But since you’re striving for more, you will want to know that the CLA offers turbocharged engine power, superior safety systems, and the kind of convenience features that make this model feel truly upscale. Make plans to climb into the cabin at Mercedes-Benz of Charleston soon.



You have the option to equip the 2020 CLA coupe with a handcrafted AMG® 2.0L four-cylinder engine that produces 375 hp, thanks to racing-inspired engineering. The strongest engine available in the 2 Series is a turbocharged 3.0L V6 that produces just 335 hp – nothing that will turn heads of the roads of Bridgeport and Huntington. In this battle of the CLA vs 2 Series, the Mercedes-Benz CLA takes the victory.


The Mercedes-Benz CLA is on the forefront of safety technology with several exclusive systems available that you won’t find on the BMW 2 Series, like:

  • ATTENTION ASSIST® is the first system of its kind which detects drowsy driving behavior utilizing 70 different parameters of driving behavior.
  • Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC® uses radar technology to maintain a safe distance between surrounding traffic, adjusting your speeds automatically to help prevent accidents.
  • PRESAFE® and PRESAFE® PLUS add protective measures to deflect impact from passengers in case of an emergency, applying the brakes and engaging seatbelts in an instant.
  • PRESAFE® Sound plays a special “pink noise” to shut out loud noises in case of an impact, which protects your hearing from harm.



Less than a thousand dollars separates these models in base price, but the introductory CLA feels much more luxurious. To start, it is a four-door coupe offering easy access to the backseat. The cabin comes with 8-way power front seats with memory and 4-way power lumbar support for perfect positioning, and an 7-inch multimedia display with the voice-activated Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX). There are even selectable driving modes to let you cruise though around town exactly how you want. The introductory version of the BMW model is only available as a two-door coupe with a 6.5-inch touchscreen. Most feature upgrades come in the form of pricey packages, which makes the price difference even more significant.
