This little Mercedes crossover SUV combines traits of a hot hatchback with the higher ride height of a sport-utility vehicle. If you want the prestige, style, safety features and accouterments of a Mercedes-Benz SUV for an un-Mercedes price, the GLA is your answer.
The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA250 is the smallest and most affordable SUV in the German automaker’s lineup. The GLA is among a wave of entry-level luxury-crossover SUVs such as the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Infiniti QX30 that have struck a chord with buyers thanks to their affordability, premium amenities, SUV-like utility and higher seating position. Like those rivals, the GLA looks more akin to a stylish, taller hatchback than a traditional SUV, but this baby Mercedes is agile and all-wheel drive.
What’s New for 2018:
Mercedes freshened the GLA for 2018 with new front and rear treatments, and an interior update that includes a larger 8-inch high-res center screen. The standard power tailgate gets a hands-free open/close option, and Android Auto support joins Apple CarPlay phone integration.
The GLA’s tidy size makes it a friend in cities and urban environments, where its easy-to-park manners and maneuverability help it slither through congestion. It’s in traffic and in-town driving where you’ll notice its start/stop feature, which cuts engine power at idle. Restarts aren’t too noticeable but all the same, you can defeat it with the press of a button.
DYNAMIC SELECT dials in the GLA’s performance character with the tap of a console button. Throttle, shifting and more sharpen in Sport mode, ease up in ECO, keep calm in Comfort. There’s even a mode you can set up yourself.
From its turbo to its tight turning circle, it’s a quick-witted, surefooted, fun-loving SUV that’s propelled by a legacy of motorsports victory and performance innovation.
AUTONOMOUS BRAKING: More than ever, we live in an era of automotive distraction. That makes automatic emergency braking systems such as the GLA’s Active Brake Assist all the more relevant — and potentially life-saving. If a collision appears imminent, the car will alert you. If you fail to brake, it ultimately will.
ELECTRONIC BRAKE HOLD: If you seem to spend more time stopping than going, you’ll likely embrace this feature. A press of a button applies the brake for you when you’re at a stoplight. This enables you to take your foot off the pedal to relax, plus be able to instantly hit the accelerator pedal.
Sized to fit in. Styled to stand out.
