The redesigned 2018
How much will you get into it? A lot.
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 19 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.
Opens hands-free. Perfect when your arms are full.
With the available new foot-operated power liftgate, just a "kick" under the bumper can grant you easy access to the generous cargo area. There's 1,235 litres of cargo room with the rear seats folded, or 421 litres with all five seats in use.
More looks to choose from. More looks you'll get.
Stylish options can make your GLA even bolder. The Sport Package adds 19-inch AMG multispoke wheels, a sporty brake upgrade and AMG lower body styling. Two more 19-inch AMG wheel options feature black accents or all-black centers.
Confidence comes from many factors, but it comes alive in the GLA: From its turbo to its tight turning circle, 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. Advanced 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's offers the smooth refinement of an automatic with sporty reflexes. Its dual-clutch 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.
Standard 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 optional vivid 8-inch colour 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 Android 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.
Works like high-tech. Feels like second nature.
Advanced options make long journeys and close quarters equally easy. Intuitive COMAND navigation includes a larger 8-inch display and LINGUATRONIC voice control. And Active Parking Assist can help you park your GLA hands-free.
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 is standard, too. 
Makes cruising more comfortable. And parking almost effortless.
From heavy traffic to tight spaces, advanced options help smooth your way. Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC® cruise control adapts to traffic. Blind Spot Assist watches your flanks. And Active Parking Assist helps park your GLA expertly.
