New Vehicle Spotlight: The 2018 GLA 250
With the character of a Mercedes-Benz SUV, a sporting soul and a compact footprint, the redesigned GLA is agile, adventurous and adaptable. It’s at home in the city, eager when you’re far from home, and a perfect fit for today, and tomorrow.
Sized to fit in. Styled to stand out.
Taut, trim and muscular, the GLA is big on style even in its smallest details. New front and rear styling is fresh yet iconic. New wheels range from 18 to 20 inches. Every line is strong yet refined, true to the character within.
Sleek yet spacious. Functional starts with fun.
The compact GLA packs some sizable surprises. Its sensible footprint conceals a cabin that’s generous with legroom, headroom and luxury. And while it’s solid and strong, it also slips through the wind efficiently and quietly.
More cubic feet. Opens with your foot.
With the available new HANDS-FREE ACCESS, just a “kick” under the bumper can open the standard power liftgate. It’s a grand opening to a generous space: 43.6 cu ft of cargo room with the rear seats folded, or a sedan-like trunk with all five seats in use.
More looks to choose from. More looks you’ll get.
Two styling packages can make your GLA even bolder. The AMG® line Exterior adds 19-inch AMG® multispoke wheels, a sporty brake upgrade and AMG® lower body styling. The Night Package renders all that with Gloss Black accents.
Confidence comes from many factors, but it comes alive in the GLA: From its turbo to its tight turning circles, it’s a quick-witted, surefooted, fun-loving SUV that’s propelled by a legacy of motorsports victory and performance innovation.
Turbo power. Two liters of pure energy.
With 208 turbocharged horsepower, the GLA 250 quenches your thirst for performance with a minimal appetite for fuel. Advance Direct Injection and multispark ignition self-tune on the fly, to keep your enthusiasm at full boost.
Power at your feet. And your fingertips.
The 7G-DCT transmission offers the smooth refinement of an automatic with sporty reflexes. Its dual-cluth design shifts faster than a human can. While its shift paddles let you take charge of its seven speeds anytime.
Torque follows traction. Turns grip into go.
Available variable-torque 4MATIC® all-wheel drive can sense the very onset of wheel slip, and instantly reapportion up to 50% of the engine’s power to the rear wheels on demand. An Off-Road mode makes the GLA even more capable.
Whether you need to be connected or want to feel protected, the GLA surrounds with advanced technology that’s designed to enhance your life on the go, even when you’re away from your Mercedes-Benz.
Big-Screen entertainment. Starting with a bigger screen.
The vivid 8-inch color display is not only larger, it also brings you a wide range of ways to stay entertained and informed. From Bluetooth® audio streaming to available Apple CarPlay and Andriod Auto, your GLA has your ears covered.
Multiple Modes. For your many driving moods.
DYNAMIC SELECT dials in the GLA’s performance character with the tap of a console button. Throttle, shifting and more sharpen in Sport mode, ease up in ECO, keep calm in Comfort. There’s even a mode you can set up yourself.
See better by night. Look better by day.
Available new LED headlamps flood the road ahead with light that’s brighter, whiter and more like natural daylight. Arching white LED Daytime Running Lamps and LED taillamps with new “Stardust” technology earn admiring glances coming and going.
Helpful connections. To set you free.
In the car or out, Mercedes me connects you to your world. Its smartphone app includes Remote Start and far more. It also brings the Internet and WiFi to your car. Five years ofmbrace® Connect services are standard.
Virtual eyes on the road. And the driver.
Every GLA uses radar to help spot hazards in your path, alert you, and even start braking to help reduce collisions. It can alert you if you seem to be getting drowsy behind the wheel. And a rearview camera makes backing up easier.
Makes cruising more comfortable. And parking almost effortless.
From heavy traffic to tight spaces, advanced options help smooth your way. Distance Pilot DISTRIONIC® cruise control adapts to traffic. Parking Pilot helps park your GLA expertly. Lane Keeping and Blind Spot Assists are also available.
