Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2021, the GLA-class is a clean-sheet redesign. While it still resembles the previous-generation GLA-class, the new model looks more premium inside and out, which will help it blend with the throng of Mercedes-Benz SUVs that launched for the 2019 and 2020 model years. It shares a platform with the brand's other small offerings, including the slightly larger GLB-class SUV and the entry-level A-class sedan.

Pros
Responsive handling,
lots of available features,
interesting design.

Cons
Cramped interior,
uncomfortable ride,
not as luxurious as a Benz should be.

The GLA has been fully redesigned for 2021.Part of the second GLA generation introduced for 2021.

Pros
Smooth ride and comfortable seats
Features one of today's best, most advanced infotainment systems
Mercedes badge at an affordable price

Cons
Most of the GLA's advanced safety features are optional
Too much road noise for a luxury SUV
Cargo capacity is small compared to Mercedes' GLB

By:

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class is the smallest and least expensive SUV in its lineup, and a welcome entry to the brand.

Pros
Stylish interior
Reasonably well-equipped
Roomier rear seats
Extensive options

Cons
Expensive options
Some options should be standard
Small cargo area
Can’t wait for the GLA45

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Pros
Powerful turbocharged engine
Handsome updated styling
Standard active safety tech

Cons
Luxury Avenir trim will be expensive
The brand doesn't command as much respect as some competitors

Buick has completely redesigned the Envision SUV for 2021, imbuing it with an eye-catching design that's far more handsome than the bland 2020 model featured.We haven't had the chance to sample the all-new Envision, but we suspect that the mid-range Essence model will likely satisfy most buyers. Those seeking a luxury ride with all the trimmings should turn their attention to the top-flight Avenir. When we know more about the Envision's standard and optional features, we'll update this story with results.

The redesigned 2021 Buick Envision comes with more standard features and a more stylish look.

Pros
Good standard safety features
Avenir trim
More American-sized proportions
Sharper style

Cons
No word on price
Will it have enough power?
Is it bigger inside?

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The base 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine is no longer offered.Previous five trim levels reduced to three: Preferred, Essence and Avenir.Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard.

Pros
Quiet interior at highway speeds
Both the ride and the seats are comfortable
Standard wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto

Cons
Disappointing real-world fuel economy
Visibility is compromised by thick pillars
Not much fun to drive
