About Mercedes-Benz GLA

Mercedes-Benz has left its comfort zone to create a radical compact SUV unlike anything before it. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA small-luxury-crossover SUV takes aim at the BMW X1, Infiniti QX30 and Lexus NX, offering Mercedes’ engineering, luxury and performance at a price starting under $34,000. Despite its very un-SUV-like profile, the compact GLA is surprisingly roomy, although you’ll find more cargo and passenger space in an Audi Q3 and Land Rover Evoque. A pair of turbocharged 4-cylinder engines borrowed from the MB CLA sedan supply power to the GLA250 and high-performance Mercedes-AMG GLA45 SUVs. Because of its taut suspensions and low ground clearance, the GLA is more appealing to driving enthusiasts rather than weekend campers needing true off-road ability.

"I've had my 2015 GLA for over a year. I drove it across country and back three weeks after purchasing. It is just a pleasure to drive - handling like a sports car, with interior comfort, great on gas mileage with plenty of room. The exterior/interior are gorgeous. The features are so easy to use - navigation etc. Mercedes Benz customer service is unbeatable. I feel I'm taken care of in every way possible through Embrace, road service, etc. I don't feel like "oh you bought your car, now good luck." When I drive this car I feel confident that if I needed help, I'd get it right away. Everyone compliments me on this vehicle."

"Although the noise control and riding comfort is not good as other Mercedes model, it is totally enough for young people. I really don't care about the space of rear seat. The power is great and also it's fuel economy. I enjoy the driving so much."
