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: 
caranddriver.com

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

By:

The 2020 Mini Countryman packs British charm and driving fun in a high-quality package that’s priced like a true luxury crossover SUV.

Pros
Attractive styling
Premium quality
Room for passengers and cargo
Active safety now standard
More powerful JCW

Cons
Gets very expensive, very fast
Overmatched base engine
Strange packaging decisions
Plug-in hybrid range still lacking

By: 
thecarconnection.com

For the 2020 model year, the Mini Cooper Countryman JCW gets a new engine that generates 301 horsepower. This powerplant offers significantly more muscle than the outgoing 228-hp engine. Also, the six-speed manual transmission has been discontinued; an eight-speed automatic with paddle shifters is the sole transmission.

Pros
Athletic performance,
snazzy sheetmetal, premium cabin.

Cons
Provides less cargo space than some rivals,
no Android Auto,
not available with blind-spot monitoring.
