2016 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class Buyer's Guide
Introduced as an all-new model for 2015, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLA rolls into its second year on the market essentially unchanged. The compact crossover market is quite strong these days, as is the entry-level luxury market. More and more, we’re seeing cars priced in the low $30,000 range from marques well known for more stratospheric pricing. With these factors in mind, it was inevitable we’d eventually see entry-level compact luxury crossovers, and they are here in a big way. Sleekly curvaceous and definitively sexy, the new small Mercedes-Benz crossover SUV is based on the company’s new CLA line of smaller cars introduced for 2014. While the CLA found a ready audience, we’re seeing fewer examples of the GLA SUV on the street than we expected.

Power for the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLA comes from a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder aluminum engine. Configured for the GLA 250, 208 horsepower and 258 ft-lbs of torque are produced. It’s paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission feeding the front wheels in the standard GLA models, and all four wheels with the GLA 4MATIC powertrain. The AWD GLA45 AMG gets 355 horsepower from a twin-cam version of the engine, which is assembled by hand for this application. It’s also capable of 332 ft-lbs of torque.
Why buy the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class?
Small in size—but big otherwise, the design of the Mercedes-Benz GLA blends nicely with the curvaceous styling language currently in vogue at the world’s oldest automobile company. High tech safety features include blind spot assist, smart cruise control, lane keeping assist, and active parking assist (yes, it’ll park itself—both parallel and perpendicularly). You’ll also find rear side airbags and keyless start. While the GLA 250 is configured for mild off roading, we’re willing to bet most of the people buying it will never stray from the paved network of roadways. Quiet and smooth—with long legs—this compact Benz loves the highway. Delivering exceptional comfort to boot, you’ll enjoy long distance travel in the 2016 GLA Class Mercedes, in standard or AMG configuration.
