2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250: Standard Memory Front Seats

January 30, 2014

2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250

Although we bought our 2014 Mercedes CLA with the Premium and Multimedia packages, it certainly wasn't necessary. Despite what you might expect, the base CLA250 comes reasonably well-equipped. One of the highlights is the standard eight-way power front seats with three memory settings.

This is noteworthy for two reasons. First, memory settings are almost always an option in this price range. As someone who is 6-foot-3 with a 5-foot wife, the ability to get such a hugely convenient feature without it being bundled with a bunch of stuff I don't need is very appealing. Second, eight-way power for the passenger seat is often an option or not available at all in entry-level luxury cars. Memory functions for the passenger are rarer still.

Though I too would probably opt for the Premium and Multimedia packages, I wouldn't feel short changed without them.

    Always seemed like the biggest ripoff to me. A feature that costs almost nothing to add, bundled with thousands of dollars of extra crap. This really is impressive.

  • I've always loved Mercedes' trademark seat controls. No reaching down between the seat and the door and fumbling around.

    Seat memory. So it measures up to the Kia Forte in your fleet - nice, job Mercedes.
