Mercedes-Benz CLA
2 of 10

No. 8: 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA

MSRP: $32,400 (Details Below)

The Mercedes-Benz CLA ranks in the lower half of its class, yet it still has a decent all-around score and plenty of desirable attributes. Experts say this five-passenger model is a good entry-level luxury car, because it has adequate performance combined with a smooth ride, and it offers lots of upscale features.

The CLA was already known for including a long list of equipment, and for 2017, Mercedes-Benz upgraded the model with a rearview camera that now comes standard, as well as a new menu of options and packages, both of which help increase the car’s value. The front-wheel drive version of the CLA is a good choice to save on fuel costs.
