Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Mercedes-Benz GLA merges hatchback size with crossover functionality and luxury appointments, with better-than-average results.

Pros
Zippy to drive
Nimble handling
Practical hatchback shape
AMG GLA45 is downright sporty

Cons
Cramped rear seats
Interior doesn't impress
So-so visibility
AMG gets expensive with a quickness

By:

We think that the 2020 model year will be the last for the current-generation GLA before a new model arrives for 2021. As such, Mercedes-Benz did not make any changes for the 2020 model year.

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

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

By:

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class comes with all wheel drive, and front wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 7-speed automated manual.The AMG GLA 45 has been discontinued.

Pros
One of the most entertaining crossovers in the class
Respectable fuel economy considering its performance
High clearance and optional all-wheel drive lend some all-weather capability
Long list of available tech and safety features

Cons
Firm ride quality can grow tiresome on rough roads
Automatic transmission operates sluggishly in stop-and-go situations
Not much legroom, headroom or cargo room
Road and wind noise could be better tamped down

PROS
Seriously sorted chassis
Determined three-cylinder engine
Excellent interior technology

CONS
Cramped rear seats
Getting expensive for a small SUV
We don't get the ST

By: 
carexpert.com.au

PROS
Fast, terrific dynamics, extremely well-engineered.

CONS
Ride can be a little uncompromising, sub-optimal fuel consumption if you use the performance.

By:

Not only is the Ford Puma ST one of the most exciting SUVs we’ve ever driven, it’s also immensely practical, comes packed with equipment and undercuts all of its main rivals on price. In other words, the Puma ST is a classic performance car from Ford: fast, fun and fantastic value, making it our favourite Sports SUV.

PROS
Immensely enjoyable to drive
Surprisingly big boot
Great driving position

CONS
Occasionally bouncy low-speed ride
Infotainment could be slicker
A VW T-Roc is bigger in the back
