Americans are pretty clear who we are and what we like, and though we much care for being we’re nothing if not consistent. why it’s no big surprise that crossovers are the most popular segment in America. What is is how far those vehicles have No longer just a lame for a real SUV, crossovers grown in terms of quality, and available amenities such there seems virtually no end in Mercedes-Benz has been busier just about anyone when it comes to redesigning lineup and introducing new models, and the GLA is the latest to come down the pike to fill this new mold. We made our way to Málaga, to take two iterations out for a spin: the 4Matic and the zippier GLA45

The GLA is based on the new CLA Class sedan, so not large by any means. Even the height, increased by 1.2 inches, diminutive. It’s built to a bite out of market share now occupied by the likes of the Land Evoque and the BMW X1. You see, we want our European utes for pavement-only like we want to wear performance gear without sweating in it. And Mercedes-Benz knows its market well. The GLA is more than the X1 and nearly as stylish as the (that’s a tall order, of On the shores of Málaga where roam sleepily at mid-morning, all were on the GLA like a new supermodel the hadn’t seen yet. pricing for the GLA250 4Matic is and the GLA45 AMG is $50,500, which is amongst its competitors: the 250 4Matic is just above the X1 xDrive28i and thousand less than the Evoque. Apparently, the fancier sheetmetal, the bigger the ticket.

We want our upscale European for pavement-only driving like we to wear high-end performance without actually sweating in it.

The GLA250′s efficient M270 four-cylinder engine is turbocharged and good for 208 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of The engine feels spritely, if not Mercedes claims the GLA250 go from 0-60 in 7 seconds, but it quicker. As far as heft is concerned, the new only weighs a little bit than the CLA250 4Matic — a in and of itself — and also boasts a 0.29 drag coefficient, it the aero leader in its class and cabin noise down speeds pick up. 25 city and 36 on the mileage side is quite too.

What Mercedes has in the GLA Class is both sporty and off-road capable in 4Matic Though it’s front-wheel-drive the 4Matic can perform a 50/50 split between front and and stability control and torque add sure-footedness when it’s hard; when the going slick, which we experienced in twisties, the GLA hangs on. We even off-road on some fairly back roads, where the GLA impressively over chunks of and big muddy divots while use of its 7G-Tronic dual-clutch transmission and descent control. We could get to this kind of multiple-personality

Farther down the performance and spectrum is the GLA45 AMG, the version of the GLA250, which a somewhat less balanced at the 250′s utilitarian duality. The AMG eats the tarmac that faster with 355 hp and 332 lb-ft and fatter wheels, tauter setup, a lower stance and bits that indicate its leanings. It moves and hangs on to the far better than other crossovers we’ve driven, and its looks back everything up for eyes.

At the end of the day, though, we’d opt for the well-rounded GLA250 4Matic for versatility and less of a thrashing on our It provides great spirited on the road and the chops for working off the path without compromise on end.
