    Ok guys so I’m compared a Mercedes and an Audi. I am aware this could be more bias to the Mercedes, but try be unbias.

    Mercedes CLA 180 premium plus (2020)

    vs

    Audi A4 black edition 35 (2020)



    I really can’t choose out of the two. They are very different cars and I love them both

    I guess the real question is do you know how to use indicators ;-)

    Mercedes SL500 R231

    Hello and welcome

    Take them for a drive and see which one you prefer. Opinions from a forum aren’t really helpful as we’d pick what we prefer and it’s you that’s going to be driving it.

    Hi and welcome to the forum. As previously said drive them both and see which one you prefer, both are quality products. Any advise from this forum will be our preferences, not yours. Good luck and make sure you make the right decision. :)

    Having read your two other threads, I think you will prefer the Audi. ;)

    Go onto one of the Audi forums and ask the same question. o_O

    Having seen your other threads maybe a BMW is more your style. ;)

    Personally for me, it's got to be the CLA, love that shape,
    the A4 is a tad bland. IMO

    I was looking to update to a W205 'C' but I an really warming to the CLA. My daughter has an '68 plate A Class which I quite like but a hatch is not for me hence a CKA appeals :)

    Out of them two, personally I would have neither. I would go to BMW and get the 3 series. The A4 is very plain and the CLA is front wheel drive. Had a 69 plate 320d with a few toys and was very impressed by it.
    All the kit you need and it returned in the late 50s for fuel. Wouldn’t trade the inline 6 in mine, but a very nice piece of kit.

    Personally if I was looking to buy a BMW I would go for a 4 series.

    I was only using the comparing model type as to what the OP is looking at. My personal preference is 5 and up, apart from the M3/4. Currently have a 530d GT and I’m perfectly happy with it, does what I need it to and it does it really well.

    If you want my honest opinion - I would only want ANY Audi if it was free! Then I'd sell it and buy a Mercedes..... Simples!
