Design

A true SUV for a new age
2015-GLA-CLASS-GLA250-086-CCF-D.jpg

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.

Multifaceted, multifunctional

The more you get into it, the more you'll get out of it.

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.

18-inch wheels, chrome details

It shines on every surface, from the road to the roof.

The GLA250 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.


Performance

Turbocharged power

Turbo power: A boost for torque, and for efficiency.

The "power domes" in the GLA250 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.

Comparative claims based on latest manufacturer-published competitor information for compact gasoline-only AWD SUVs and EPA estimated highway fuel economy for GLA250 4MATIC.

4MATIC all-wheel drive

Torque on demand: Confidence at your command.

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.

Dual-clutch 7-speed

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 375-hp AMG GLA45 SUV

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 GLA45 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.


Technology

Entertainment within easy reach

Pleasure for all your senses. Distraction for none of them.

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.

While the navigation system provides directional assistance, the driver must remain focused on safe driving behavior, including paying attention to traffic and street signs. The driver should utilize the system´s audio cues while driving and should only consult the map or visual displays once the vehicle has been stopped in a safe place. Maps do not cover all areas or all routes within an area.

Safer, easier driving
2015-GLA-CLASS-GLA250-084-CCF-D.jpg

Traffic tamer. Drift defender. Multilane multitasker.

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.

COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST may not be sufficient to avoid an accident. It does not react to certain stationary objects, nor recognize or predict the curvature and/or lane layout of the road or every movement of vehicles ahead. It is the driver's responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for the system's alerts before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely. Autonomous braking operates at speeds up to approximately 65 mph.
Driving while drowsy or distracted is dangerous and must be avoided. ATTENTION ASSIST may be insufficient to alert a fatigued or distracted driver of lane drift and cannot be relied on to avoid an accident or serious injury.
Blind Spot Assist may not be sufficient to avoid all accidents involving vehicles in your blind spot and does not estimate the speed of approaching vehicles. It should not be used as a sole substitute for driver awareness and checking of surrounding traffic conditions.
Driving while drowsy or distracted is dangerous and must be avoided. Lane Keeping Assist may be insufficient to alert a fatigued or distracted driver of lane drift and cannot be relied on to avoid an accident or serious injury.
DISTRONIC PLUS® adaptive cruise control is no substitute for active driving involvement. It does not react to stationary objects, nor recognize or predict the curvature and lane layout of the road or the movement of vehicles ahead. It is the driver's responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for the DISTRONIC Proximity Warning System before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely. After braking the car for stopped traffic ahead, system resumes automatically only if traffic pauses for less than 3 seconds.
