2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250: It's Worth Stretching for the Sport Package

February 17, 2014

2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250

As base models go, the 2014 Mercedes CLA250's wheels aren't bad. They have a sturdy, chiseled appearance that makes them look expensive, and the two-tone coloring helps, too.

That said, if I were buying a CLA I would definitely stretch to get the $2,200 sport package. It adds a set of 18-inch, double-spoke wheels that look even more expensive, not to mention a tasteful body kit, chrome grille and drilled front brake rotors.

Clearly, it's a sport package that's designed to add a sporty look more so than actual performance. That's fine with me, though, as it does the job. It transforms it from a mildly handsome car into a truly eye-catching sedan that gets noticed. The extra $2,200 isn't peanuts, but in this case it's worth it.
