Mercedes-Benz drivers enjoy both sophisticated performance and design and capable functionality with the all-new GLA-Class.

Mercedes-Benz has introduced a bold addition to the current SUV line-up.  The all-new Mercedes Benz GLA-Class is a compact SUV expertly built for efficiency, functionality, and flexibility.   As capable as the GLK, ML, or GL-Class at tackling an adventure, the GLA-Class offers industry leading innovations in a compact design.

Assertively Elegant Design

Just one look at the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class will tell you it comes from a legacy of sophisticated design and engineering.  The bold aggressive design commands the road, while a compact wheel-base enables it to fit into the tightest spaces.  The GLA250 features athletic 18-inch wheels and an agile 4-wheel independent suspension.  Other standard exterior features include chrome roof rails and a power liftgate.  Inside the cabin, the luxurious dash made of premium materials sweeps around the driver.  The power driver seat adjusts in 14 different ways for custom fit and support for the road.  Over 43 cubic feet of cargo space is available when the rear split seats are down.

Power for the Road

In addition to the sporty and sophisticated design of the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class, the SUV delivers powerful performance as well. More than just a pretty sight, it packs 208 horsepower thanks to a turbo inline-4 direct injection engine paired with advanced rapid-multispark ignition.  Furthermore, the 7-speed DCT transmission gives drivers seamless control on the road.  The dual-clutch design shifts with speed and precision.  Best of all, the lightweight design of the GLA-Class makes it fuel efficient.  ECO start/stop functionality can automatically turn the engine off at red lights or in the drive-thru line to save fuel.  It instantly restarts as soon as you make the move to go.

Expert power and handling give drivers an incredible driving experience no matter the road conditions.  The 4MATIC® all-wheel drive system delivers premium agility and the variable-torque system monitors traction at each wheel and can re-direct power to the rear wheels as needed for greater power and control.  With one touch of the Off-Road button, the SUV enters Off-Road mode and tailors multiple driving systems to suit the current terrain.

A Safer Journey

The GLA-Class wouldn’t be a Mercedes-Benz without leading safety technology.  Standard safety features include the radar-based COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS system that actually enables the brakes to apply automatically in the event of an impending collision.  ATTENTION ASSIST® is included to alert drowsy drivers and available Blind SPRT and Lane Keeping Assists help drivers navigate traffic more carefully.   Drivers can even select the optional DISTRONIC PLUS® cruise control which automatically adapts to the flow of traffic on the road, slowing the car as necessary.  Countless other safety features are built into the design of the GLA-Class by the engineering team at Mercedes-Benz such as safety belt features, airbag functionality, crumple zone construction and more.  These may rarely get attention, but make a difference when it counts!

To really understand the experience of driving a Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class, you have to see it for yourself.  Contact your local Mercedes-Benz dealer to learn more about the unique features and performance of the GLA-Class and take a drive in one for yourself!
