Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class blends hatchback with crossover, with better than mixed results.

Pros
Quick on its feet
Turbo engines are a blast
Hatchback practicality
Very good fuel economy
GLA45 AMG earns its initials

Cons
Tight rear seats
A $60,000 GLA45 AMG? That escalated quickly
Interior can seem plasticky

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class ranked #4 in Luxury Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class has a score of 7.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 26 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Sporty handling
Impressive infotainment system and features
Thrilling AMG model

Cons
Inefficient base transmission
Cramped back seat

2018 GLA-class amount to little more than a light freshening. Newly optional LED headlamps flank a restyled grille with crossbars that feature rectangular punctures like those on the larger GLS-class SUV. A revised front bumper with more-prominent fog lamps, revised LED taillights, and new wheel designs round out the exterior tweaks. Inside, an 8.0-inch infotainment screen replaces last year’s 7.0-incher; additional chrome brightwork adorns the door panels and the center console; and new, more legible black-faced gauges replace the 2017’s gray-faced units.

Pros
Quick reflexes and acceleration,
all-weather capability,
stylish inside and out.

Cons
Cramped cabin,
turbo lag around town,
ride can be overly firm at times.
