Mercedes-Benz CLA180 vs BMW 216i Gran Coupe
19 Jul 2022  |  BMW Reviews
The CLA180 is a feast for the eyes and offers more passenger room. But the 216i GC, with its polished performance, is the entry-level 'four-door coupe' to beat.

Review
I bought the CLA45S and I must say, I am blown away by its performance and it breadth of talent.

The damping and ride is good for the car with a mad engine.

It looks excellent and its power is crazy.

What I like
AMG Engine is epic. (I managed to clock 3.84s to 100km/h)
Viceral gearbox
Ride quality is surprisingly good

What I do not like
Small petrol tank, a little larger would be nice.

Review
The size of the car is perfect for today's needs. Love the shape of the coupe but practicality of a sedan. Spacious and very updated interior, comfy hugging front seats and not forgetting the small but responsive engine. Not to mention, it's beautiful 18 inch rims with Hankook tyres. Lovely!

What I like
Power from the 1,332 cc engine, OMG. Amazing. Spacious and very beautiful interior. Even headliner and side pillar are black, SPORTY. Shape of the car. Huge boot. Functional car with all specifications.

What I do not like
No comfort access (need to add on), No kick boot release (need to add on)

Review
Test drive the new CLA 200. Compared to the previous model, this model not only looks better, the engine performance is also better.

The car is torquey from the moment you step on the accclerator. If you are looking for a refined car that accelerates linearly, this will not be for you. It surges ahead when you step on the accelerator, feels like driving a Japanese turbo car. I tried it on n both comfort and sports mode, both present the same "Unrefinment" Of a merc. Power delivery is much better than the previous model. Could not try long distance acceleration, but I doubt it can hold the power at high rev with its small engine.

Sound insulation is good from blocking sound from outside, but the engine noisy protrudes into the cabin, it has this raspy growl, much like a Honda Civic 1.5t.

Features wise, it does not have bsd, navigation maps and 360 camera, considering the price tag of 188k, it's a bit expensive without some of those features besides having the Mercedes new mbux.

What I like
- Torquey engine response
- nice Looking exterior
- nice interior
- if you like to hear the raw grant noise of the engine, like those jap turbo cars,this will be the car
- mbux looks good

What I do not like
- at the price point, it lacks a lot of features compare to Korean or jap cars
- the car tends to surged froward even at the lightest step on the accelerator, it feels like a beast that is untamed, have to be careful when driving in narrow or curvy roads with those kind of throttle response
- engine noise can be consider loud when you accelerate, not what you would expect from Mercedes
