The "power domes" on the GLA250 hood are a Mercedes-Benz tradition. So is the progressive power beneath. A 211-hp turbo inline-4 teams 3rd-generation Direct Injection with advanced rapid-multispark ignition. ECO Start/Stop can automatically shut off the engine at red lights to save fuel, then restarts the instant you're ready to move out.
The fuel-efficiency and fun of a manual. The relaxing comfort
of an automatic. The 7-speed DCT transmission gives you both.
The racing-derived dual-clutch design shifts more quickly and
precisely than is humanly possible. Three driving modes
(ECO, Sport and Manual) and shift paddles on the steering
wheel let you take the power in your hands.
The GLA can be had with a comfortable or sporty suspension design. The suspension components feature a high proportion of aluminium, not matched by any competing vehicle in this segment. The lower weight of the suspension reduces the unsprung masses and enables particularly sensitive response to road-surface characteristics. This results in a high level of driving safety and high ride comfort.
