2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA vs. 2020 Volvo XC40


The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA has added more standard features to its upper trim level. It also made sure that the base trim and all other trim levels enjoy new features that buyers will want to try. User-friendly systems have also been included in the launch of this new model from the brand.

The 2020 Volvo XC40 has removed the leather upholstery from its standard inclusions. Nonetheless, it still has a nice interior to boast against its competitors. Power-folding rear seats are no longer available for this car model.

Design & Style

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA exudes a combination of sportiness and modernity in its exterior. This is an attribute that makes it belong to the fleet of cars from the brand. Inside the car, there is a cozy interior awaiting its passengers. You will also enjoy the comfortable seats made out of the softest yet sturdy materials.

With a nice interior and roomy seating, the 2020 Volvo XC40 is truly a remarkable car too. Note, though, that it has a subpar cargo capacity, and has eliminated leather upholstery as part of its materials for the interior. Power-folding rear seats are no longer available to provide comfort to users.

Technology & Safety

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA presents a great combination of its eight-inch touchscreen display with its infotainment system. This car is also gifted with a six- speaker audio, Bluetooth® interface, and a CD player. The GLA also comes standard with a rearview camera, plus is given advanced driver aids like forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking.

For the 2020 XC40, the Sensus Connect infotainment remains to have the nine-inch touchscreen display. This looks like a tablet rather than the usual car panel. The entire system takes time getting used to. Many think that provision for physical knobs will be better for other functions like climate control. It has a long list of active safety and driver assistance features, including forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and automatic high-beam headlights. Traffic sign recognition, as well as oncoming collision mitigation are also standard.


With a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine placing power under the hood of the 2020 Volvo XC40, you will be able to get results of only up to 187 horsepower. Results for the GLA are much better at 208 horsepower for the same engine size.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA is indeed one great car that can topple down even a newer car model like the 2020 Volvo XC40. It remains undisputed in terms of design and technology features. Add to that, this car is also powerful when it comes to engine performance.
