Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Everything. The new Mercedes-AMG GLA35 and GLA45 are based on the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA-class, which is a ground-up redesign.The Mercedes-AMG GLA-class is offered in both GLA35 and GLA45 guise, and both come standard with a host of performance features that turn up the heat on the Benz-branded GLA250. All-wheel drive is standard, as is a sport-tuned suspension. Pricing and option packages haven't yet been officially released, so we aren't sure which one represents the best value. But, that 382-hp version of the GLA's turbo-four makes the GLA45 model the most compelling from a performance standpoint.

AMG waves its wand over the new baby SUV from Benz.

PROS
Fierce package
Second row fits adults, hurrah
Will become the most popular baby AMG for a reason

CONS
Front seat is uncomfortable
Noisy cabin is far from premium
Some will write you off as a wannabe

Cargo capacity is small compared to Mercedes' GLB

For 2020, the Santa Fe lineup receives minor updates that mainly include reshuffled content. The base SE and mid-level SEL models add a standard Rear Occupant Alert that reminds owners to check the back seat. The SEL also gets more standard driver assists (blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, and more). All SEL models with the Convenience package now have wireless charging for phones. The top-tier Limited model now has premium doorsills, dark-chrome exterior trim, and a new Blind-View Monitor.

Pros
Excellent value versus rivals, enjoyable to drive daily, eminently practical cabin.

Cons
Not particularly quick, ho-hum interior design and materials, mediocre fuel economy.
