When people think of luxury cars, they think of powerful performance, advanced technology, and supreme comfort and control. Another thought that often flashes through minds at the mention of luxury cars is 'Very Expensive'. To be fair, this is often true, as the incredibly powerful specs and numerous high-tech features found in luxury cars do come at a significant increase in cost. However, that's not always the case.
Today, we'll be looking at 2 cars from luxury, high-class brands that have a starting MSRP of under $35,000! That's quite a deal and a lot of value from a car that still qualifies as a high-performance, luxury vehicle. So, what could those luxury cars be? It's the 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA coupe vs the 2018 Cadillac ATS sedan.
While the 2018 Cadillac ATS does have a slight edge on power, it loses to the 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA in nearly every other category. Furthermore, regardless of that single advantage, the 208 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque on the starting trim of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA isn't anything to scoff at. All the while, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA generates better fuel efficiency and comes equipped with more cargo space while being made available at a lower starting MSRP compared to the 2018 Cadillac ATS. Finally, we previously touched on the advanced technology features that come with luxury cars. Many of those you'll find with the 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA include:
ECO-START® and ECO-STOP®
Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control
Chrome Diamond-Block Grille
SmartKey with KEYLESS-START®
LED Headlamps and Taillamps
