M235i Vs. CLA45 AMG: It's a German Civil War

Comparison

A war without bombs and bullets, that is.

Finally! Both BMW and Mercedes-Benz are building road cars once again that are not only small, but also powerful in a serious way. You’re all familiar by now with the new BMW M235i and Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG. Two great German entry-level models; two great driver’s cars. Yes, one is a sedan while the other is a coupe, and one has rear-wheel-drive while the other delivers power to all four wheels. Let’s just ignore those details for the moment.

They’re both in the same price range and offer buyers quite a lot for the money. They’ll both put a smile on your face. So which one is better after being compared in a head-to-head matchup? Motor Trend’s Jonny Lieberman drives both to find out.
