2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA

January 28th, 2019 by

Sleek yet spacious. Functional starts with fun.

The compact GLA packs some sizable surprises. It’s sensible footprint conceals a cabin that’s generous with legroom, headroom and luxury. And while it’s solid and strong, it also slips through the wind efficiently and quietly. With the available HANDS-FREE ACCESS, just a “kick” under the bumper can open the standard power lift gate. It’s a grand opening to a generous space: 43.6 cu ft of cargo room with the rear seats folded, or a generous trunk with all five seats in use. Two styling packages can make your GLA even bolder. The AMG® Line Exterior adds 19-inch AMG® multi spoke wheels, a sporty brake upgrade and AMG® lower body styling. The Night Package renders all that with Gloss Black accents.

PERFORMANCE

Confidence comes from many factors, but it comes alive in the GLA: 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. With 208 turbocharged horsepower, the GLA 250 quenches your thirst for performance with a minimal appetite for fuel. Advanced Direct Injection and multi spark ignition self-tune on the fly, to keep your enthusiasm at full boost. The 7G-DCT transmission’s offers the smooth refinement of an automatic with sporty reflexes. Its dual-clutch design shifts faster than a human can. While its shift paddles let you take charge of its seven speeds anytime.
