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:

The 2020 Jeep Cherokee comes with four wheel drive, and front wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 9-speed shiftable automatic.No significant changes for 2020.

Pros
Available V6 and turbocharged engines provide smooth and assertive power
Absorbent suspension smooths out rough surfaces
Capable and user-friendly 8.4-inch touchscreen on many models
Trailhawk offers unique off-road capability for a small crossover

Cons
Sluggish acceleration with the base 2.4-liter engine
Less cargo capacity than other small crossovers

By:

The 2020 Jeep Cherokee cashes in on off-road prowess and luxury features but comes up short elsewhere.

Pros
High-quality cabin
Sliding second-row seat
Trailhawk off-road capability
Sharp infotainment system
Wide range of powertrains

Cons
Lack of standard active safety tech
Bland styling
So-so fuel economy
Inconsistent 9-speed transmission
Smaller interior than competitors

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The Cherokee underwent a significant mechanical and cosmetic update for the 2019 model year, so changes to the 2020 version are minimal. Newly available, though, is an Advanced Safety Group package that includes lane-departure warning, forward-collision warning, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. Jeep also is offering two new paint colors for the new year: Sangria and Spitfire Orange.

Pros
Legitimate off-road capability, good ride and handling for the class, Jeep badge adds cred.

Cons
Poor fuel economy, limited cargo space, not a great value.
