Travel without reservations.
With the character of a Mercedes-Benz SUV, a sporting soul and a compact footprint, the turbocharged 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 from its iconic grille to its LED taillamps. Big 18-inch or 19-inch wheels and black fender flares lend a confident stance. Chrome and aluminum add elegant accents from bumpers to roof.
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 foot-operated power tailgate, 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. The Night Package takes its sporty cues to the dark side with bold black accents.
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 litres 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.
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 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 "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.
Helpful connections. To set you free.
From the everyday to the unexpected, new Mercedes me Connect helps ease your way. You can control vehicle features from your smartphone. Get help in an emergency. Set up a service appointment. And more, all at no charge for 3 years, or up to 10 years for Emergency and Assist services. You can also add unlimited-data WiFi for a low monthly rate. 
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.
