A perfect fit for today, for tomorrow, and for you. Compact size can’t shrink the shine of the Three-Pointed Star. The bold GLA fuses authentic SUV versatility with the pure passion that defines every Mercedes-Benz. Its nimble size delivers an ideal mix of flexibility, fuel-efficiency and fun. And its advanced engineering delivers genuine capability, true luxury and class-leading innovation.
The cabin of a Mercedes-Benz is where the most rigid standards are the most rewarding to touch. The GLA is generous with space, style and substance, from its winglike dash to its power liftgate. The power driver seat adjusts 14 ways. The split rear seats make way for 43.6 cubic feet of cargo. And all of this fits into its uncanny base price.
The GLA 250 is made to carve up the corners, not to cut them. So it comes standard with beefy 18-inch wheels and an agile 4-wheel independent suspension engineered to shine on any surface. For even more sparkle, there are standard chrome roof rails, as well as a choice of 19-inch wheel options and accessory racks and carriers for the roof.
Turbo power: A boost for torque, and for efficiency. The “power domes” in the GLA 250 hood are a Mercedes-Benz tradition. So is the progressive power beneath. A 208-hp turbo inline-4 teams 3rd-generation Direct Injection with advanced rapid-multispark ignition. ECO Start/Stop automatically shuts off the engine at red lights to save fuel, then restarts the instant you’re ready to move out.
Available next-generation 4MATIC® all-wheel drive combines on-road agility with off-road ability. Lightweight and fuel-efficient, variable-torque 4MATIC® monitors grip at each wheel, and instantly sends up to 50 percent of the engine’s torque to the rear wheels on demand. A one-touch Off-Road mode tailors the driving systems to the terrain.
Two clutches, no clutch pedal: Smooth, sporty shifting. The fuel-efficiency and fun of a manual. The relaxing comfort of an automatic. The 7-speed DCT transmission gives you both. The racing-derived dual-clutch design shifts more quickly and precisely than is humanly possible. Standard shift paddles and the multiple modes of new DYNAMIC SELECT let you take the power in your hands.
The most powerful four: Now with even more power. The most powerful 4-cylinder in production has grown more powerful for 2016. With a class-leading 375 handcrafted horsepower and 26.1 psi of maximum turbo boost, the AMG GLA 45 holds its record output even higher. It holds the road with torque-vectoring AMG Performance 4MATIC® and 19-inch AMG® wheels. It holds its own in any crowd.
A freestanding color screen and intuitive central controller put a world of entertainment and information within reach. A larger 7-inch display and Bluetooth® audio streaming are standard. Innovative multimedia options for navigation, music and online features, including an even bigger 8-inch screen, make going anywhere easier and more fun.
Standard safety innovations include radar-based COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS with autonomous braking, and ATTENTION ASSIST® to help sense a drowsy driver. Available Blind Spot and Lane Keeping Assists help make highway driving easier and safer. And optional DISTRONIC PLUS® cruise control automatically adapts to the flow of traffic.
