New for 2019

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class adds Iridium Silver as a new exterior color. High-performance GLA 45 models now come standard with 20-inch alloy wheels.

Trim Levels (Interior and Exterior Options)

The 2019 GLA-Class is Mercedes-Benz's entry-level front- and all-wheel-drive crossover slotting below the larger GLC-Class.

GLA 250: The base GLA 250 comes standard with 14-way power front seats, dual-zone climate control, an 8.0-inch screen, two USB ports, Bluetooth, 18-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, and a rearview camera.

AMG GLA 45: The performance-oriented GLA 45 adds its unique exterior styling, 20-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, keyless entry and start, a hands-free power liftgate, heated front seats, a performance-oriented 4Matic all-wheel-drive system, AMG sports exhaust system, AMG sport suspension, a Race mode setting, AMG high performance brakes, and AMG-tuned steering.

Options include navigation, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a Harman Kardon audio system, leather upholstery, multi-color ambient lighting, a surround-view camera system, and a panoramic sunroof. The GLA 45 has extra go-fast goods like an adaptive suspension, an AMG performance exhaust system, and a limited-slip differential.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class comes standard with a 2.0-liter turbo-four paired to a seven-speed twin-clutch automatic transmission. In the GLA 250, the engine makes 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque while the high performance GLA 45 is rated at 375 hp and 350 lb-ft.

EPA fuel economy ratings for the GLA 250 are 24/33 mpg city/highway for front-drive models and 23/31 mpg with all-wheel drive models. The GLA 45 is less efficient at 22/28 mpg.

Safety

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class hasn't been crash tested by the NHTSA and IIHS. Automatic emergency braking, forward collision and Attention Assist are standard on all models. Blind-spot monitoring (standard on GLA 45), lane keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control are optional.

Utility

With all seats in place, the 2019 GLA-Class has 11.8 cubic feet of cargo space that can be expanded to 43.6 cubic feet. GLA 45 models have less cargo space with the second row folded at 41.9 cubic feet.

What We Think

In a 2018 First Test, we liked the GLA 250's agile handling. The 2.0-liter turbo-four does suffer from turbo lag—switching to Sport mode does alleviate things but makes the throttle touchy. The GLA 250's ride comfort is firm, and we found that build quality is not on par with other Mercedes vehicles. As for the optional sport seats, they are supportive but hard and lack height adjustment.

The GLA 45 won a 2015 comparison test that included the Porsche Macan and previous generations of the BMW X4 and Audi SQ5. The GLA 45 offered strong straight-line acceleration and excellent steering, making it fun to drive all the time.
