Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The facelifted 2018 Qashqai gets a fresh look, more kit and new tech. It's a good thing, but is it a standout option in the small SUV segment?

Pros
Still looks smart
Above-average cabin practicality
Improved on-road refinement
Good cabin build quality
AEB now standard across the range

Cons
It's pretty expensive
Can feel underpowered
Key active safety reserved for top models
Ti, adaptive cruise not here until mid-2018
Tyre roar, busy ride on 19-inch wheels
Still no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto

By: 
caradvice.com.au

Pros
Spacious interior for size
Addition of AEB
Good comfort equipment list

Cons
Aggressive tyre choice spoils ride
Space saver spare tyre
No Apple Carplay or Android Auto

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.

The GLA has been fully redesigned for 2021.Part of the second GLA generation introduced for 2021.

Pros
Smooth ride and comfortable seats
Features one of today's best, most advanced infotainment systems
Mercedes badge at an affordable price

Cons
Most of the GLA's advanced safety features are optional
Too much road noise for a luxury SUV
Cargo capacity is small compared to Mercedes' GLB

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class is the smallest and least expensive SUV in its lineup, and a welcome entry to the brand.

Pros
Stylish interior
Reasonably well-equipped
Roomier rear seats
Extensive options

Cons
Expensive options
Some options should be standard
Small cargo area
Can’t wait for the GLA45
