2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class Price Jumps to $32,425

The entry-level Mercedes CLA sedan has one less bragging right for the new model year. Despite no changes to standard equipment, Mercedes-Benz has raised the car's price by $1600 to breach the $30,000 mark.

Research

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 now comes in at $31,500, and when a destination fee is factored in, the price rings up to $32,425. This is a significant change from when it debuted in 2014 with a sub-$30,000 price tag before destination. With the price increase, the Benz is now more expensive than its main rival, the Audi A3.

Prices have increased across the entire CLA-Class family, reports Automotive News. All-wheel-drive models start at $34,425, up 5 percent from last year, while the more powerful CLA45 AMG now commands a price of $49,425, a 2-percent increase. Also, a number of optional packages have been reshuffled for the new model year. Keyless entry and ignition have been added to the $2300 Premium Package, while multicolor ambient lighting is now included in the $1650 Interior Package. The $2480 Multimedia Package gets a larger display screen.

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class continues with its standard 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four producing 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The CLA45 comes with an upgraded inline-four with 355 hp and 332 lb-ft.

But the CLA isn't the only Mercedes model to receive a major price bump for the 2015 model year. The Stuttgart-based automaker also bumped up the starting price on the C-Class by $2600 after axing the C250 version. The C300 now heads the lineup at $39,325 after $925 destination.
