Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The name sounds odd, but the Touareg offers a comfortable ride and spirited performance—something we all can understand. Its 3.6-liter V-6 makes 280 hp and is mated to an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. The Touareg is large, comfortable, and solid—plus it’s equally at home both on and off the pavement. A standard touchscreen infotainment display is functional but dated; the optional adaptive cruise control and automated emergency braking, however, are well engineered and effective.

PROS
Comfortable, tech-laden interior
Active safety functions
3.5 tonne towing, real off-road ability
Ride on standard air suspension

CONS
No seven-seat option
Lacks a full-size spare tyre
Expensive for a Volkswagen

By:

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

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
