The Mercedes-Benz GLA provides a smooth, precise driving experience for those who know what excellence looks like and have the experience to appreciate it. Much like a compact sedan, this crossover moves, parks, and even consumes fuel effectively and efficiently. For what it offers in convenience, however, it doesn't compromise in luxury—the GLA comes equipped with all the technology and comfort features you would expect in a Mercedes-Benz vehicle.  

Available in either the GLA 250 or the GLA 250 4MATIC®, the base GLA starts at $33,950,* but even the “standard” vehicle is anything but ordinary. A generous variety of standard features can be found inside, including a six-speaker audio system with a CD player, a 60/40-split folding rear seatback, Bluetooth® compatibility, an 8-inch central display with a dial-button control array, and more.

Mercedes-Benz understands exactly what drivers are looking for in a luxury experience, which is why the GLA comes prepared to deliver the perfect combination of style and performance.

The Perfect Ride for…

Anyone searching for the feel of a sedan in the package of a crossover. The GLA's exquisite interior, its incredible engine, and its stylish curves never fail to satisfy. Whether it's chewing up the miles on the open highway or hugging the corners on winding back roads, drivers can count on the GLA to deliver nothing less than excellence.

Drive & Handling

The Mercedes-Benz GLA features a 2.0-liter inline-4 turbocharged engine, which receives an impressive 208 horsepower. This crossover can go from 0-60 in 7.2 seconds, which is excellent for a vehicle of its size.**

The GLA comes equipped with a variety of braking technologies that take your drive to the next level in terms of safety and handling. The adaptive braking technology integrates a suite of advanced features, including Hill-Start Assist and Automatic Brake Drying, and the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Brake Assist (BAS®) work together to keep you safe and secure on the road. 

Add in the Electronic Stability Program (ESP®), which monitors your driving inputs and the vehicle's motion to keep it traveling in your intended direction, and you've got a recipe for a great drive. The GLA delivers strong, smooth performance on the straight, in the curves, and everywhere in between.
