Cross-over cars are really getting some momentum these days and Mercedes wanted to put their hand on it with the new Mercedes Benz GLA class which essentially is a A-Class hatchback with better ground clearance and an all-wheel drive system. The car is typical Mercedes with the 3-star logo and a curvy design and it is very attractive on the rear end as well. There is 40% more luggage space than on an A class car making it more practical with under floor storage. You can also increase the boot space by flattening the seats.
The rear seats offer more comfort with decent head room and knee room for even people over 6 foot tall. The interior design of the car is sporty and is again similar to the A class car. The car becomes more comfortable thanks to the extra ground clearance and jacked up suspension making it better than the car it is based upon. There is a 2.0L petrol engine option in the middle that gets to 100kmph in 6.6 seconds offering decent performance and economy.
With 4-wheel drive and 9-speed automatic transmission as standard, the shifts are positive complimenting the engine performance. The ground clearance comes in handy with the visibility of the car making it easier to chuck around the chock-a-block traffic. To help with driving, it does come with different rider modes to choose from to make the car comfortable and sporty according to the terrain you are to keep it smooth and sporty. Overall, the car is a great cross-over with decent handling characteristics, comfortable suspension, high quality interiors and great practicality on offer making the Mercedes Benz GLA Class a commendable car for the family.
