Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class ranks 2 out of 5 Luxury Subcompact SUVs. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA SUV offers compact-car-like agility and fuel economy in an upscale package. However, there’s little passenger and storage space – even for a subcompact – and its ride isn't as cushioned as many of its rivals.

Pros
Powerful engines
Outstanding handling
Lavish interior
Class-leading reliability score

Cons
Poor cargo capacity
Small back seats

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class is a small, luxury compact 'ute that prioritizes "looks" over "feels," or in other words, it's probably perfect for a lot of shoppers.
Mercedes' smallest crossover—if you can call it that—returns this year to challenge our ideas of compact SUVs, performance, and rear seat head room. Offered as a base front-drive GLA250, all-wheel drive GLA250, or top Mercedes-AMG GLA45, the GLA class may follow Mercedes' nomenclature as an SUV, but it's in a class all its own.

Pros
Impressive dynamic driving
Lots of turbo fun
Sporty and small for two
Decent fuel economy
Great options ...

Cons
but they're pricey
$60,000 for a subcompact hatch?
Cramped rear seat

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality is available for both 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class versions this year. Mercedes says the instrument panel has been mildly redesigned, and the 8-inch display screen is thinner than before. The new AMG Dinamica package adds faux-suede upholstery to the GLA 45's steering wheel and dashboard.

Pros
Sporty handling and performance even in the base model
AMG GLA 45's long list of available technology and safety features.

Cons
Ride quality is firm to the point some might object
Road and wind noise is in abundance
Automatic transmission can operate awkwardly in stop-and-go situations
Less cargo capacity than its rivals.
