Default Audi S3 vs. Mercedes CLA250 Sport

I was quite taken aback by the perceived, and I guess actual, superiority of the Audi when compared with the Benz. The amount of power developed by the Audi is quite staggering and, to be sure, the interior looks superb - as does the Mercedes interior.

The Audi, no matter how good in other respects, is badly let down by what I think is nowadays a quite dowdy shape. On that score, Mercedes wins hands down. Performance wise however, the Audi is a surprise package. Regards Styria

The unfair situation here is that the S3 is the equivalent of the CLA45 not the CLA250 Sport.

In the flesh the Audi is very neat and the lines are fully resolved. The interior is better quality than the Benz - but it is hard to beat Benz's commitment to customers even when the car is out of date; and that is something I would consider in making a purchase.
