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.

Some will write you off as a wannabe

New 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine provides more power.More standard driver assist features on automatic-equipped Crosstreks.Part of the second Crosstrek generation introduced for 2018.

Pros
High ground clearance for enhanced off-road capability
Spacious seating for a hatchback of its size
Comfortable ride quality
Easy to see out of

Cons
Slow acceleration on the highway with base engine
Mediocre cargo space
Handling isn't as precise as that of some rivals

The 2021 Subaru Crosstrek flexes a more potent available powertrain but still prioritizes safety and capability.

Pros
Excellent CVT
Off-road capable, rugged looks
Standard AWD
New Sport trim
Standard safety tech

Cons
Cramped USB ports
Limited-release hybrid
Manual transmission omits more than it adds
Limited trim not a value

Along with a light visual refresh that includes new front bumper and grille designs, the 2021 Crosstrek gains a Sport model and a more powerful engine option. The new 2.5-liter flat-four has been lifted from the mid-size Legacy sedan and Outback station wagon and plopped under the hood of Sport and Limited models of the Crosstrek; the languid 2.0-liter engine is still in the mix, but relegated to the base and Premium models only.
