Whether backing out of a tight parking spot or changing lanes in stressful highway traffic, side-mirrors are a driver's best friend. These seemingly simple exterior features provide faithful visibility wherever you go - and they deliver safety to every Canada adventure.
They're not all created equal, however. While the side-mirrors on the base model of the 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia are fitted with the most advanced technology, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class requires a few upgrades to provide the same functionality.
Both sedans come standard with heated exterior mirrors, which can be easily configured to maximize driver visibility. However, only those on the Alfa Romeo are power-foldable; while Mercedes-Benz will require you to reach out the window to adjust the angle, potentially exposing yourself to unpleasant elements.
Side-mirrors are also useful when equipped with Active Blind-Spot Assist. If a hazard is detected, this system will flash LED lighting to alert the driver, affording improved reactions and helping to minimize the chance of a collision. This function is standard on the Giulia Sport; but the Mercedes-Benz requires two jumps up to the pricey AMG CLA 45 trim to offer the same protection.
Test out the Giulia's side-mirrors, plus an impressive list of other exterior features, in person. Contact the team at Alfa Romeo of Winnipeg to learn more and schedule a visit.
