The GLA-class SUV is the sexy sibling of the slightly more practical GLB-Class. What the sleeker GLA loses in cabin and cargo space, it makes up for with improved styling, meaning it’s the best choice for those who value form over function in their SUV. The sleek, modern interior is beautifully appointed in premium materials. The GLA’s 221-horsepower four-cylinder turbo provides adequate power to the front or all four wheels and is complemented by the subcompact crossover’s compound handling. If you are looking for a GLA that will light up your synapses with its performance head towards the much more powerful AMGGLA45. If, on the other hand, you’re looking for a fashion-forward mode of transportation with ample space and a healthy dose of luxury and refinement, then the GLA-Class should meet your wants and needs in style.
What’s new for 2024?
Mercedes has revitalized the GLA-Class for the 2024 model year, giving it a new face with high-output LED headlights as well as a newly sculpted rear end with updated taillights. Under the hood, the GLA-Class gets a hybrid power assist system, which should help the engine run more efficiently but doesn’t necessarily increase performance. Other upgrades include a new standard 10.3-inch infotainment screen with the latest software as well as wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Additionally, High Beam Assist, Parking Pack, Mirror Pack and Keyless GO Pack are now all standard equipment.
