Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class

Mercedes’ fast, roomy, and 2015 GLA is the epitome of futuristic

is what I consider the future of in capsule form: the Mercedes-Benz

The all-new GLA is a compact crossover upon the Mercedes A-Class but a slightly taller ride for capability, a bit more luxury for the Mercedes customer, and a dab more to justify its purchase price.

look at the thing. I don’t it has one bad angle. It is absolutely gorgeous. I wrote about the car I’d like to see build: the Katana crossover. I reckon, is far better looking our rendering. It’s simply

Under its sinewy body, the GLA a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder 208 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. All told, the GLA will a 0-60 mph run in 6.4 seconds.

The first GLA to hit shores in the fall of 2014 be the all-wheel drive model the new-gen permanent 4MATIC packing fully variable distribution for improved traction, known as torque vectoring. A few later, the standard front-wheel model will go on sale in 2015.

Slip inside and will find a world-class with a floating infotainment that looks like a mix the G550 and the S-Class.

Surprisingly, Mercedes is pushing the that the GLA will be off-road bragging that models with 4MATIC will “DSR (Downhill Speed and an off-road transmission mode as This is laughable to me because I very much anyone – or would ever want to – his or her GLA off the pavement on purpose.

Regardless of its prowess, I still believe car to be an example of the future of cars. small, relatively light, efficient, outstanding looking, but importantly it has a roomy interior.

If vehicle description sounds at all to you, that’s because it It is essentially how I described the BMW X1 – save the looks bit. Although I the X1 for being exceedingly expensive for its it was a very good little

The X1 was big in the front, small in the backseat, but cavernous in the rear hatch It drove like a small sedan but hauled like a SUV. It was fairly miserly on but also had enough petrol to give you a kick in the corners. And – at glance at least – I’d say the GLA takes brilliance and builds on it in every

But why, though, do I think the epitome of all future cars?

Fuel economy standards are up. That means cars are to have to be more aerodynamic, and smaller. The GLA, then, on all fronts.

Americans have steeped in SUV versatility for so many now, they dare not that great utility, so the car of the will have to hold a lot of despite its exterior dimensions. The GLA has covered. It is both well and apparently capable of tackling road conditions.

Then, have to look good. buyers will sacrifice for efficiency – like those who a Prius. The mainstream, I feel,

There is one thing standing the GLA and being considered the car of the 21 st century: Mercedes-Benz has not yet released the sticker I suspect when it does, it’ll be a bit steep. The X1 starts out enough but by the time you’ve it how you want it, it’s rather indeed. The GLA’s cousin, the CLA, is priced rather so there’s hope the GLA will,

I’m rarely in awe of a car. When I am, it’s usually over like a $300,000 hypercar. The GLA has me all gooey inside. I look at it and see a new way for the global car market, and that is exciting indeed.
