The ILX also packs an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT) with a torque converter for smoother take-off from stops (vs. the CLA250's 7-speed DCT with no torque converter).
The ILX has more front headroom and more front and rear legroom than the CLA-Class and comes standard with heated front seats. If you want them on the CLA250, be prepared to pay extra. Same thing with Keyless Access System with smart entry, pushbutton ignition: standard on the ILX, extra on the CLA250.

The ILX offers a GPS-linked, solar-sensing climate control system, On Demand Multi-Use Display™ (ODMD™), standard LED headlights, and available LED fog lights. Good luck getting those on the CLA250 because it doesn't offer any of them. Even the ILX's noise-reducing aluminum-alloy wheels come standard.
