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.

Cons
Most of the GLA's advanced safety features are optional
