2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250: Child Seat Won't Fit

July 28, 2014

2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250

Our child safety seat will not fit in the back of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250. This is a rare problem. In fact, our Cadillac ATS was the only other long-term vehicle that shared this flaw. Here's why it doesn't work...

One problem is the rake of the seat bottom. It's steep enough that the base of this child seat won't fit flush against the CLA's seatback. There is a considerable gap.

Another problem is the shape of the CLA seatback. Its integrated headrests slant forward and basically, ensure that my kid seat will never fit. This car does not cut it as a family vehicle in my world.
