2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250: Seat Comfort

January 16, 2014

2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250

The seats in our long-term 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 are comfortable, well-bolstered (but forgiving) and they fit my 5-foot-8-inch frame perfectly. I haven't had the chance to get a lot of seat time in this car yet, but city traffic and some enthusiastic driving both proved to be supremely comfortable enterprises.

With the 2013 Scion FR-S out of our fleet, these are definitely front-runners for my favorite seats in the Edmunds garage.

    Seriously? I love this car, but a seat shaped like a curved potato chip is not comfortable. They're actually reminiscent of uncomfortable airline seats. Especially when the headrest area is not adjustable at all, like most seats. This is definitely sacrificing comfort for style. I am 5' 2" and this seat is incredibly uncomfortable where my back and neck hits the seat is pushing my head downward with a huge gap behind my neck area. The lumbar adjustment doesn't really help to resolve this. I know your typical German is not 5' 2", but come on!
