Serving Maple Shade, NJ

If you expect excellence in your new compact executive car, you understandably may be focused on what the 2019 INFINITI Q50 brings to the table. This is a 4-door sedan that refuses to disappoint with its stunning performance, style, and features. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA is viewed as a comparable model as it is also a compact executive car. However, critical differences exist that may influence your upcoming purchase plans.


The 2019 INFINITI Q50 is outfitted with your choice of two powertrains. The base powertrain is a turbo 2.0-liter engine that generates 208 horsepower. You can also choose the twin-turbo V6, 3.0-liter powertrain that offers 400 horsepower. Performance is enhanced by an independent suspension system, power steering, intelligent all-wheel drive, a 7-speed auto transmission, all-season performance tires, and more. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA is only available with a turbo inline-4 engine that gives off 208 horsepower. It comes with dynamic select, a 7-speed auto transmission, power steering, and additional equipment.


The CLA and the Q50 are both 4-door luxury vehicles, but their exterior designs have stark differences. The 2019 Q50 boasts an elegant, rounded nose with sharp LED headlights. Soft contouring throughout the side panels is set off by a lower character line. This combines with a confident yet tapered roofline that creates a powerful, athletic look. Its equipment includes powered side mirrors with heat and turn signal integration, a power moonroof, rain-sensing wipers, and other advanced features. The CLA for 2019 has a characteristic grille that is similar to other Mercedes-Benz cars. This is combined with large LED headlights with a triangular shape and a robust hood with multiple character lines. Moderate characterization flows through the side panel, and the roofline fades sharply into a downward-sloping trunk. Its exterior features include remote entry, all-season tires, and power side-view mirrors with heat elements.


The 2019 Q50 and the 2019 CLA have quality materials throughout, but their features are unique across the available trims. In the 2019 INFINITI Q50, you may appreciate forward emergency braking, a dual-zone auto climate control system, adaptive cruise control, a push-button ignition, ambient lighting, welcome lighting, wireless technology, leather seating with heat and power adjustments, a Bose sound system, mounted controls on a heated steering wheel, a predictive forward collision warning and more. The CLA may have a multimedia system, an auto climate control system, smartphone integration, mounted steering wheel controls, power windows, and speed-sensing power door locks.
