Mercedes-Benz GLA
2017
Mercedes-Benz GLA 2017 4-door SUV Trim Shown: 2017 250 4-door SUV AWD Sequential
Essentially a raised hatchback version of the CLA sedan, the GLA performed better in our tests than its sibling. It got 26 mpg overall from the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder. But the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic is unrefined, and power delivery is not even. This makes the GLA feel lethargic at first, then power comes on abruptly. Handling is nimble, but the ride is stiff and the cabin is loud. Visibility, particularly to the rear, is poor, and headroom is snug. Safety features include a forward-collision mitigation system. Automatic emergency braking and blind-spot monitoring are optional. A front-drive version and a high-performance 375-hp GLA45 are available. The infotainment system has become more complicated for 2017 but is now compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Mercedes-Benz GLA 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 GLA250
Essentially a raised wagon version of the CLA sedan, the GLA performed better in our tests than its sibling. It got 26-mpg overall from the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder. But the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic is unrefined and, combined with the engine's turbo lag, makes the GLA feel lethargic despite its quick acceleration times. Handling is fairly agile, but the ride is stiff, and the cabin is loud. Visibility, particularly to the rear, is poor. Standard safety features include a radar-based collision-prevention system. Autonomous emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and lane assist are optional. A front-drive version and a high-performance 375-hp GLA45 are available.
