Overview
The Mercedes-Benz GLA is a mix of adrenaline adventure geek chic sport utility and sports car. This is capability luxury and class-leading innovation. It’s everything you need in a compact SUV and everything you want in a Mercedes-Benz. Get the best or nothing. Choose from 3 models the GLA250 the GLA250 4-matic or the handcrafted AMG GLA45. The GLA’s nimble size provides the perfect mix of flexibility fuel-efficiency and fun. Start with the 208 horsepower 2 liter turbo inline 4 engine. It delivers the right mix of power to its 4MATIC all-wheel drive system for on-road agility with off-road ability. The GLA shines on the road and off. Standard 18-inch wheels and 4-wheel independent suspension make it agile on any surface. The power driver seat adjusts 14 ways while the split rear seats make way for 43.6 cubic feet of cargo. Safer easier driving is a standard innovation on the GLA like the radar-based collision prevention assist plus with autonomous braking and attention assist to help sense a drowsy drive. Express yourself by choosing from 10 exterior and 6 interior options. The Mercedes-Benz GLA. Small in size. Huge in impression.
Safety
Advanced safety features come standard on the GLA including radar-based collision prevention assist plus with autonomous braking and attention assist to help sense when you’re getting drowsy. Available Blind Spot and Lane Keeping Assist help make those highway commutes easier and safer. Add the optional distronic plus cruise control and it automatically adapts to the flow of traffic slowing until your path is clear again. If the vehicle ahead slows to a stop distronic plus can brake to a full halt.
Performance
Get ready to move out. The standard 208-hp 2 liter turbo four in the GLA250 uses numerous advances to provide more power from less fuel. Its rapid-multispark ignition and high-pressure Direct Injection can fine-tune themselves in milliseconds. The 7-speed transmission gives you the response of a manual with the smoothness of an automatic. Selectable ECO Sport and Manual modes let you go for fully automatic efficiency and comfort or manual shift excitement via the steering wheel-mounted shift paddles.
