2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250: Integrated Headrests
October 27, 2014
I like the seats in our 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250. They're snug, supportive, very comfortable, and the leather is holding up well (as you'd hope with just less than 18,000 miles). They've performed well on road trips. They boost the luxury quotient in this bargain Benz.
But I don't like the integrated headrests. I can't say why exactly. Maybe because I'm accustomed to the power adjustable headrests in higher-ranking Benzes. Maybe it's the aesthetics. Maybe I'm convinced adjustable headrests are safer since you can tailor for height.
The CLA headrest padding itself is soft and giving, so no complaints about comfort. I think I just prefer adjustable headrests in any car. I think I'd even prefer them in a Porsche 911. And the seats in a 911 are pretty much flawless.
