The all-new GLA
Our smallest SUV is the next big thing.
(We don't make a next-best thing.)
Arriving Fall 2014
Starting at: $33,300*MSRP
Fits in anywhere, stands out everywhere.
The most compact SUV to wear the Star earns it in a big way. Its bold design fuses function with passion. Its nimble size delivers an ideal mix of flexibility, fuel-efficiency and fun. And its advanced engineering delivers true SUV capability with industry-leading innovations. Anyone can make a compact SUV. The all-new GLA is a Mercedes-Benz.
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.
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.
Turbo power, for class-leading torque and fuel-efficiency.
The "power domes" on 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 can automatically shut off the engine at red lights to save fuel, then restarts the instant you're ready to move out.

Torque on demand, for confidence at your command.
A new generation of 4MATIC® all-wheel drive combines on-road agility with off-road ability. Lightweight and fuel-efficient, the variable-torque system monitors grip at each wheel, and instantly sends up to 50 percent of the engine's torque to the rear wheels as required. A one-touch Off-Road mode tailors numerous driving systems to the terrain.
Two clutches, no clutch pedal, for 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. Three driving modes (ECO, Sport and Manual) and shift paddles on the steering wheel let you take the power in your hands.
Crafted by hand, quick on its feet.
What happens when you put the most powerful 4-cylinder in production into a compact SUV? You get the GLA45 AMG, with a class-leading 355 handcrafted horsepower and 26.1 psi of maximum turbo boost. The hottest GLA holds the road with torque-vectoring AMG Performance 4MATIC® and 19-inch AMG® wheels. It holds its own in any crowd.

Pleasure for all your senses. Distraction for none of them.
With a freestanding color screen and intuitive central controller, the GLA puts a world of entertainment and information within reach. A 5.8-inch display and Bluetooth® audio streaming are standard. Innovative multimedia options for navigation, music and online features, including a big 7-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.

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.
