Luxury At Its Finest: The Mercedes-benz Cla 45 Amg Vs. Bmw M235i

By Expert Author: Mark Ellison

Mercedes-Benz and BMW have been rivals for quite a long time and are always trying to one up each other with every new model. This has been going on since 1959 when BMW was going to go out of business and Mercedes-Benz had intentions of buying them out. Instead, private buyers bailed BMW out of their predicament. This started a healthy rivalry. They compete with each other in every aspect of the word. Each Mercedes-Benz model has an equivalent BMW model to compete with. Let's compare their newest additions, the Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG vs. BMW M235i. BMW got rid of their 1 series after 5 years and released the new 2 series this year. Mercedes-Benz then released their CLA class to compete with them.

Even though the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG is a four door coupe and the BMW M235i is a 2 door coupe, they are actually quite similar. Let's start with the high selling Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG. It is powered by a 2.0 liter four cylinder with 355 horsepower and 332 lbs.-ft. of torque. Take it from 0 to 60 in an impressive 4.5 seconds. Mercedes announced that this is their most powerful four-cylinder engine at 178 horsepower. Both vehicles are about the same weight but the Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG one up's the BMW M235i with the 4Matic all-wheel drive while the BMW M235i has only rear wheel drive. This means that acceleration competition for the two vehicles is definitely won by the Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG.

The BMW M235i is the newest addition to the M performance of BMW's. It uses a 3.0 turbocharged six-inline creating 322 horsepower with 332 lbs-ft. of torque and has a quarter mile drag time of 13.0 seconds. The M235i can accelerate from 0 to 60 in 4.8 seconds when it is optioned with the 8-speed sport automatic.

The Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG is the best of both worlds combining luxury, space, and sport. Its back end looks like a full-size luxury sedan but in other aspects, it is definitely a sports car with a fierce looking front end and smooth sides. The looks and feel are not the only qualities. The performance is extraordinary.

The BMW M235i was aimed at a more stylish and attractive look than the 1 series. It resembles some of the 4 series but it is more for buyers looking for a compact smaller sports car. Still luxurious, it is not equipped to be a family vehicle so the choice depends on your personal needs.

Both of these vehicles are offering an affordable price for buyers looking to spend around $45,000. The Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 starts at $47,450 (without destination and handling) while the BMW M235i starts at $43,100 (without destination and handling).
