2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA

2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 VS 2018 Audi A3 in Fort Walton Beach, FL

2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 VS 2018 Audi A3 in Fort Walton Beach, FL

The vehicle above is the 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 with optional features shown. 

When it comes to purchasing a luxury vehicle, you’ll want to make sure that it has the aesthetic appeal, luxury features, and high performance powertrain you desire. We at ZT Motors of Fort Walton Beach know that you would rather spend time with your friends and family rather than spend the day comparing cars, which is why we’ve put together this comparison to ease the burden. Today we are examining the 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 VS 2018 Audi A3. While both of these vehicles boast many of the things on your checklist, there is no denying that there is one that simply does it better. Continue reading this article to learn just why our staff simply cannot stop raving about the CLA 250!

Let us begin this comparison with what lies beneath the hood of these two vehicles—the powertrains. The standard 2.0L inline-4 turbo engine on the CLA 250 produces thrills up to 208-hp and 258 lb.-ft. of torque—talk about a peppy engine! In addition, the 7-speed DCT dual-clutch automatic transmission gives you the best of both worlds, the athletic response of a manual, and the sophistication of an automatic. Plus, with selectable ECO, Sport, and Manual modes, you can customize your driving style depending on your mood. Now let’s look towards the Audi A3. Its 2.0L turbocharged TFSI® engine, although undeniably powerful, falls short in comparison to the CLA 250 with only 186-hp and 221 lb.-ft. of torque. While the A3 does offer a 7-speed S tronic® dual clutch automatic transmission, you may not get the sporty drive you crave, as it does not come standard with shift paddles like the CLA 250 does.

We know that you are seeking looks that thrill, and with the CLA 250, you’ll have all eyes on you when you cruise down Miracle Strip Parkway. The diamond-block grille, makes a statement as it complements the twin power dome hood and headlamps. You’ll notice the hexagonal pins that surround the central Mercedes-Benz emblem, which not only add to the aesthetic appeal, but optimize airflow. When it comes to the A3, you’ll notice the Singleframe® grille which although has a high-performance look with its chrome surround, does not have the same elegant design and aerodynamic properties as the CLA 250. Both of these vehicles offer up to nine exterior paint colors to choose from and standard 17-inch 5-spoke wheels, but only the CLA 250 gives you the added option of available gloss black exterior accents.

We hope that this comparison of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 vs 2018 Audi A3 in Fort Walton Beach, FL, has assisted you in your hunt for the perfect luxury vehicle. While both the CLA 250 and the A3 boast some luxurious features and aesthetics, it is clear that the CLA 250 comes out on top. For more information, pay us a visit at ZT Motors of Fort Walton Beach, located at 1000 North Beal Parkway in Fort Walton Beach, FL. To schedule an appointment, feel free to give us a call at 850-357-8990. We look forward to assisting you!

My husband and I live in Texas and recently went to Ft. Walton beach for vacation. We have a Mercedes 350 ML and while driving one morning, the abs, esp malfunction indicator came on. We started researching the problem and decided we needed to find a Mercedes service department to take a look at it before heading back to Texas. We found ZT Motors when we googled for repair shops and decided to go straight there since it was only a few miles from our hotel. When we pulled in, we were immediately directed to the service department where we met Michael McHugh. We explained the problem to him and he told us what he thought the problem was. He also told us they were backed up for 2 weeks; however, knowing our situation, he told us if we could come back the next morning, he would expedite the repair for us. We were there early the next morning and Michael immediately got our car in, and even arranged for us to have a loaner car so we could continue our vacation. They got our car repaired within a few hours the same day. I just want to say that Mike was absolutely awesome!! He was a real lifesaver for us and his commitment to providing excellent customer service is very evident. Not only Mike, but every person we met at ZT Motors was so accommodating and made us feel very special and well taken care of. Thank you ZT Motors for helping us in our time of need!!

Here visiting and the experience was top notch throughout. First call was with Cecil in parts where he ordered the part to arrive overnight. Second, Joleen scheduled an appointment at MY convenience the following day. Lastly, Barbara provided great service the same day. Thank you for helping us out while on vacation!!

I purchased a vehicle from ZT Motors a couple months ago and had some minor electrical issues with the vehicle. The Service Manager Corey and the Sales Manager quickly worked together to have the issued repaired at no cost to me. I recently had an issue with the vehicle and not only are they rectifying the situation, they are doing it with such class. I have never been treated so well and never experienced a dealership let alone a service department with such big hearts. There is no way I could ever say thank you enough however, I thought this would be a good start. Thank you for everything. If you are thinking of purchasing, do not be foolish enough to go anywhere but ZT Motors.

I was given a loner so I can go to work while my car is getting service, I was told it will take couple of days, I was given a call the same day I dropped my car off, 7 minutes before they closed, saying that they have to have their loner car back because my car is ready. (Which is awesome) I called back but he has already left, but he did call me 7mins before they closed. I was so worried I would be charged $80 per day because I wouldn't be able to drop my car off until Monday because of my work schedule (Dropped my car off Friday morning). Luckily they have a service where they swap car at your location. Over all everyone was nice even the guy that called me 7 mins before he left saying he needs his car back.
