2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250: Perfect Steering Wheel
February 7, 2014
You can't underestimate the importance of a car's steering wheel. After all, you're in constant contact with this vital piece of equipment. And the wheel in the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 looks and feels just right for me.
In addition to its generous range of tilt and telescopic adjustments, the wheel's smaller overall diameter feels sporty while the rim thickness is meaty enough without feeling like you're holding a Python. The thumb reliefs at 9 and 3 are nice too.
Lastly, it looks damn good, with a small airbag hub, elegant spokes and tasteful metallic accents.
