Preview of Mercedes GLA 200 CDI 4Matic

A new in the compact, SUV segment, the GLA is but a “crossover”, but unsuspected qualities. The new Mercedes GLA to shake up the segment of the premium SUV owned by BMW with its X1, inventor of the and Audi Q3. His arguments are at the crossroads of a “crossover” somehow.


Advantage in entering this last coveted compact the Mercedes GLA arises serious to the BMW X1 and Audi Q3, erasing the respective of these. A remote style 4 x 4 as Q3 or raised the X1 – GLA plays the card of with some success – and performance and comfort that can all those who want to drive a and not an all-terrain.

However, with to the Class A which is derived the same wheelbase, the clientele of the with the star may hesitate, GLA, despite a greater of 125 mm, displays the same benefits providing most accomplished and style. Mercedes has every to make a good piece of the pie of compact SUV – one of the few growth segments year in Europe – Audi and but also with its Range Evoque or even Volvo V40 and Country.

In the great maelstrom of its image – too aging – and its products – too – Mercedes has relied heavily on a offering in the compact class, in the Class C. Based on the recent Class A, it was immediately scheduled a of five models to “saturate” the with a complete offer.

In addition to the City Class A, has happen version “minivan” Class B, and more recently the bodywork chest with Here today declination GLA. Mercedes prefers the SUV to designate, thus placing GLA in the lineage of its GLK, GL, ML Class G or because of its supposed crossing By the end of the year, a third variation with CLA “shooting brake”, still causes the feature very helpless in this

At each step, Mercedes has an it is not the pioneer of the class and can learn or successes of its competitors. Thus, the is clearly overcomes the inventor of the the BMW X1. The designers were able to the GLA a dynamic and aggressive for the front in line with the recent A and very well received, a squat rear underlined by the pronounced wheel arch like an Audi Q3. Less than the latter and less high on legs, looks like a break GLA raised in the of the Volvo V40 Cross Country. Its and rear hooves pretty like the large wheel draw him permanently in the category of Not without some success.

But this stylistic choice has not advantages. Indeed, the GLA is hardly than Class A with 6 cm most of which are due to ground to give it some off- capabilities and gives him the adventurer Moreover, the space on board is to the Class A in headroom (101 mm and 952 mm rear), width elbows mm) and length at the front and rear.

since the GLA takes the platform and the structure of the Class A and the majority of its However, this cell is elongated (+ 12 cm 4417 mm) on an identical of 2.70 m, resulting in door increased. Exactly the kind of that we avoid with a so as not to scrape the ground on a slope The advantage is less functional and since it allows him to show a tapered design, even if in the boot capacity to pass the 421 the 341 in Class A. It also boasts a of drag of 0.29 air record, favorable to the sobriety of drivers. In it is indeed an elevated Class A and entirely on his door to rear and not a true SUV specifically repeating the platform. Mercedes could done more clearly the as between the Class A and B.

The SUV appellation is misleading, especially compared to a BMW X1 m long) that has not much to do his little sister or a Series 2 Q3 (4.38 m) based on the platform of the A3. And do not that the GLA is the little brother of the although, incidentally, he gets the for its 4Matic AWD version (+ EUR 2 200), the management of transfers torque axles laws gearshift box – dual-clutch 7-speed standard, GLA ​​200 and 200 CDI – and motor control

Under the front hood is the range of the very simple A, despite overweight GLA ​​of 60 kg. It displays an empty weight of 1.5 to 200 CDI and 90 kg heavier version 4Matic. in mid- March, two petrol (GLA 200 and GLA 156 HP 250 HP 221) and two diesels 200 CDI 136 HP and GLA 250 CDI 170 HP) is the program available 4Matic. 200 for GLA. GLA Version 45 AMG with its turbo 360 HP will go on sale in the

Although the sensation of living is not the height of the GLA, the comfort of the and its sophisticated looks have to envy to the X1 or Q3. The dashboard is assault (faux) wood or plastic look great who do not will owners of Class A since it is the The center console is not too intrusive, the multitude of buttons control the plate that requires a practice to navigate … But everything is and there is no need, as in competition, a super- computer for controlling the of the cabin or turn the stop One thing can offend the regulars BMW and universe: this central on its support (removable) throne as a too ostentatious. Finally, the plastic may slightly too reminiscent of a low-cost

As noted, the GLA is not an SUV, and, the driving position, even remains that of the Class A with a high Beltline. elongated than sitting in a 4 x 4, vertical wheel, you cannot dominate the road visually. the rear visibility is limited by the roof coming down quickly with his small and forward, heavy amounts with the look pass cornering maneuvers in town.

The of Auto-Addict

Automakers have a nasty habit, when press launches, not to propose to the best motorized versions, the equipped and most fun to drive, on roads profiled as billiards the And do not represent the bulk of sales. for France, Marc Langenbrink, of Mercedes, ensure that are two diesel versions wheel will be a very large We searched in vain for this GLA 200 CDI manual transmission (level 2 34 500 euros or even the 220 ​​CDI (Level 3) 41 300 euros … The bulk of GLA was highly specific 45 AMG (price not but familiarly 60 000 euros) or 220 CDI 4Matic GLA clutch (50,750 euros excellent auto moreover…

We still managed to ” lay hands ” on a 200 CDI GLA dual clutch, close to the that will be the most despite its 7-speed transmission and automatic. Since this is a we can recommend for the upper motor it during rainy or snowy If the 136 HP 2.1 l turbodiesel are worth a little acceleration or on major highway (curb weight is 1.6 toys for its torque of 300 NM at 1400 rev / min the gum relative offering great operational Provided withstand high phases when applying load. This version a flexible and quiet driving, forcing the machine. Under conditions, the driveability is certain, as sobriety (5.0 l/100 km, 129 g The 220 CDI version will provide performance thanks to its 170 HP and 350 NM of torque for the power consumption and additional of 2,200 euros on a comparable

Out on the highway along which the 200 CDI quite fills its role, we the steep roads of the Andalusian excellent suspension comfort. setting is beautiful depreciation sometimes with a little too amplitude in tight corners and bumps, but the car is always held in the roll. Trajectories remain in natural inscription of the front although it would require a more clarity in its investment. And the AWD the rear axle follows print angle. Less than Audi Q3, more on the rear axle than a BMW X1, the GLA 200 CDI offers sort the best between the two of its dynamic qualities. the balance sheet, its habitability is reduced, finally signing his in the “crossover”, a sort of break floor, away from the SUV.
