General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
Mercedes-Benz CLA250 Coupe (2014)
Mercedes-Benz GLK350 (2014)
A dual-clutch transmission (DCT) is an automated manual transmission that allows the driver to control gear-shifts themselves or to let the computer decide. Upshifts are extremely fast, resulting in smooth acceleration, and due to the uninterrupted power flow it also has the benefit of increasing fuel efficiency.
2.Has front-wheel drive
Mercedes-Benz CLA250 Coupe (2014)
Mercedes-Benz GLK350 (2014)
Front-wheel drive is the most common type of drivetrain and offers several advantages. It is cheaper to manufacture (reducing the cost of the vehicle) and also lighter which helps improve fuel economy. Due to having the weight of the engine over the drive wheels it also benefits from increased traction.
3.turn radius

10.97m

11.5m

The turn radius indicates the smallest circular turn a car can make. With a smaller turn radius it is easier to perform a U-turn in one attempt instead of having to reverse back and forth in order to turn around.
4.Has fully independent suspension
Mercedes-Benz CLA250 Coupe (2014)
Mercedes-Benz GLK350 (2014)
This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.
5.basic warranty (years)

4yrs

4yrs

The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.
6.drivetrain warranty (years)

4yrs

4yrs

The drivetrain warranty covers parts of the car, such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft, etc. Typically longer than the basic warranty, it lasts for a certain number of years.

Dimensions

1.height

1.44m

1.7m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
2.length

4.63m

4.53m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.
3.cargo volume

371l

660l

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
4.width

1.78m

1.89m

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.wheelbase

2.7m

2.76m

The wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase provides the car with more stability and a smoother ride (although a shorter wheelbase can provide more responsive handling).
6.weight

1.48t

1.85t

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.

Speed

1.coefficient of drag

0.28Cd

0.35Cd

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel consumption.

Engine

1.engine size

2l

3.5l

This measurement is the total volume of all the engine's cylinders, also known as the engine displacement. This is one of many aspects of an engine that determine its horsepower, but generally speaking a greater size indicates more power.
2.Has Stop-Start system
Mercedes-Benz CLA250 Coupe (2014)
Mercedes-Benz GLK350 (2014)
A Stop-Start system automatically turns off the engine when stopping in traffic or at a red light, and seamlessly starts it again when pressure is applied to the accelerator. This saves fuel and is more ecological.
3.fuel economy (city)

10.9l/100 km

14.9l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
4.horsepower

208hp

302hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
5.maximum torque

350Nm

370Nm

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful vehicle and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
6.fuel tank capacity

50l

66l

A larger fuel tank is an advantage because you have to stop to refill less often.

Features

1.number of airbags

10

9

Airbags are designed to cushion occupants in the event of an impact. The standard number is around six, but some cars now incorporate additional ones, such as knee airbags, side airbags, and side curtain airbags.
2.Has ISOFIX/LATCH

Mercedes-Benz GLK350 (2014)
ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.
3.Has smart key as standard
Mercedes-Benz CLA250 Coupe (2014)
Mercedes-Benz GLK350 (2014)
A smart key is a wireless key that offers several benefits over a traditional key. For example when you approach the car the doors will automatically unlock, and you can turn the engine on with the press of a button.
4.Has in-car system
Mercedes-Benz CLA250 Coupe (2014)
Mercedes-Benz GLK350 (2014)
An in-car system (e.g., Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) offers extra functionalities, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.
5.USB ports

1

1

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
