‚ÄčWhich one to go for?

Those are two grades of the same car, but the difference is bigger than one might think. The entry level car's role is to appeal to people who would love to own a luxury car without breaking the bank. You would be willing to forgo the extras that come with the full options car.

On another hand, the fully specced car appeals to people who hold design and looks in high regard, and are not willing to let go of these extra touches, even when we're talking an extra $10,000. The more powerful engine is also a big plus.

Bottom line is if you can afford to go for the second choice, we doubt you would hesitate.

Competition:

  • BMW 2-series
  • Mercedes-Benz CLA
