2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA : Current Models
Sometimes, it pays to wait. Mercedes-Benz could have jumped into the compact-SUV genre when competitors like the BMW X1 hit the market, but their patience produced the sleekly styled 2015 GLA-Class, which expands upon the sub-$30,000 Mercedes-Benz CLA's underpinnings and shares engines with that strong-selling sedan. Unlike the BMW X1, Range Rover Evoque, or Audi's soon-to-be released Q3, the all-new 2015 Mercedes GLA250 and its feral sibling, the GLA45 AMG, are slung low to the ground and more closely resemble bulbous wagons than high-riding SUVs. The result is an affordable, smallish SUV that's dialed in to appeal to driving enthusiasts, not just traditional sport ute fans – which gives this affordable hatchback huge potential for success.
You'll Like This Car If...
Crave practicality and need four doors, but can't commit to a full-blown SUV? Slip into a GLA250. Feeling more extroverted about your driving? You will find satisfaction from the GLA45 AMG's more robust performance capabilities.
You May Not Like This Car If...
If you're looking for a bigger, more imposing SUV that towers over traffic and drives large, head towards the Mercedes M-Class or GL. The new GLA is all about providing just enough size (and in the case of the AMG version, more than enough performance) – which is not necessarily for everybody.
What's New for 2015
The 2015 Mercedes GLA is similar in size to the global A-Class vehicle, but is an all-new body style wrapped around the Mercedes-Benz CLA's chassis and engine configurations, which uses a front-drive or all-wheel-drive platform.
