What You Will Like

Mercedes-Benz enters the increasingly crowded luxury compact crossover segment with the GLA-Class. Its sedan underpinnings and small stature make it a nimble performer, with favorable comparison against competition from BMW and Audi. The high-performance GLA45 AMG takes things to a different level, however and nothing from any manufacturer can rival it.

What's New For 2019

Compare the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA

Loading Comparison...


With the GLA, Mercedes-Benz blends practical hatchback dimensions with crossover functionality, joined by suitably luxurious fittings.

Since its debut as a 2015 model, the compact GLA crossover SUV has earned only a few refinements, largely made for the 2018 season. Not much has changed for the 2019 model year, except for two new paint colors, including Denim Blue. Premium and Convenience packages for the AMG GLA 45 model have been revised. That high-performance version also gains new 20-inch wheels.

Powertrains and other structural elements are closely related to those offered in Mercedes-Benz’s CLA sedan (which is billed by the company as a “four-door coupe”). Once again, Mercedes-Benz offers the GLA 250 with either front-drive or 4Matic all-wheel drive. The 4Matic system is standard on the Mercedes-AMG GLA 45 model.

Beneath the GLA 250 hood, a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine makes 208 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, teamed with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. While the GLA 250 is clearly the more common of the duo, enthusiasts are far more likely to gravitate toward the Mercedes-AMG GLA 45. Its amply-modified, handcrafted version of the turbo 4-cylinder engine whips up 375 horsepower and 350 pound-feet. Mercedes-AMG also has modified the 7-speed dual-clutch transmission for use in the CLA 45.

On the safety front, each 2019 GLA comes with forward-collision warnings and automatic emergency braking. Additional safety features are optional, including adaptive cruise control and active lane control. A helpful surround-view camera system also is available. Automatic parking assistance, also optional, can help the GLA driver slip into a tight parking spot, with minimal driver input.

Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has crash-tested a Mercedes-Benz GLA.

Compact dimensions limit the GLA to providing full comfort for two passengers, but two more can squeeze in when necessary.

GLA 250 options include leather-upholstered seats and a panoramic sunroof, as well as a hands-free liftgate and LED headlights. An available Premium package adds blind-spot monitoring and heated front seats. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility also is an option, within a smartphone package.


Prices do not include $995 destination charge.

GLA 250 ($33,950) comes with the 208-horsepower 2.0-liter engine, a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, front-wheel drive, and 18-inch wheels. Standard features include a power tailgate, power front seats, and synthetic leather upholstery, as well as Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity.

GLA 250 4Matic ($35,950) is similar to the front-drive model, but with 4Matic all-wheel drive.

Mercedes-AMG GLA 45 4Matic ($53,350), the high-performance model, makes most otherwise-optional features standard. Included are a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, panoramic sunroof and 12-speaker Harman Kardon audio system. Also standard are 20-inch wheels, AMG sport suspension, active brake assist, and blind-spot monitors.


Bold styling of the GLA might suggest the toughness of a typical SUV; but being realistic, this crossover comes closer to the compact hatchback league. A taller suspension than the one employed in the CLA sedan boosts ride height a bit, and the hatchback body is a tad taller as well.

Overall, though, the GLA is more businesslike than burly. Proportions actually echo those of the Infiniti QX30, which shares a platform with the Mercedes-Benz GLA.

Sizable (18-inch) wheels help give the GLA some eye appeal. Below its relatively short roofline, steeply-angled roof pillars and a sculpted body helps enhance the visual attraction. Up front, the huge Mercedes-Benz three-pointed star emblem occupies almost one-third of the grille.

LED taillights also help boost its presence. LED headlights are optional for the GLA 250 but standard on the GLA 45.


Impressive as the GLA’s exterior might be, its cabin falls short, with more plastic and thinner fabric than Mercedes owners will recognize. Leather upholstery is optional. So are trim pieces made of wood, aluminum, or carbon fiber.

Front seats are effectively supportive as well as comfortable. Despite being a trifle snug, they hold occupants securely, atop firm cushions, helped by thick side bolsters.

Back seats are bigger than those in the related Mercedes-Benz CLA sedan, but still cramped even for average-size passengers. Legroom is a larger concern than head clearance. The rear seats fold flat to create a bountiful cargo hold, expanding from 17 to 43.6 cubic feet.

Recaro sport seats in the AMG GLA 45 are simply marvelous, not only suited for spirited driving but comfortable during long-distance journeys.

Driving Impressions

Taut, nimble handling and snappy responses are offset by a rather stiff ride in the 2019 GLA, especially when the road grows lumpy. Stiff springs and large-diameter wheels are the prominent culprits.

Otherwise, the GLA provides a sufficiently luxurious experience, at a tempting price. Only if optional summer tires are installed does the ride become noisy. Despite its tall body and 8-inch ground clearance, the GLA handles competently.

Performance ranks as competent with the GLA 250, rocketing to blazing levels behind the wheel of a GLA 45. The base model needs just over 7 seconds to reach 60 mph, while the AMG edition needs a mere 4.3 seconds to accomplish that feat – helped by its sport-tuned transmission, while emitting a delightful exhaust sound.

In Sport mode, the 7-speed dual-clutch transmission responds briskly. With Sport off, shifts are less prompt. Mercedes-Benz’s 4Matic all-wheel drive not only copes with loose surfaces, but makes mild off-roading possible. Hill-descent control can be installed.

With 4Matic, the engine sends most of its torque to front wheels, but output can be split evenly, front/rear, to yield greater traction.

Even in AMG trim, fuel economy compares to other compact hatchbacks. With front-drive, the GLA 250 is EPA-rated at 24/33 mpg City/Highway, or 27 mpg Combined. With all-wheel drive, estimates drop to 23/31/26 mpg. The Mercedes-AMG GLA45 is EPA-rated at 22/28 mpg City/Highway, or 25 mpg Combined.


The GLA is a tidy hatchback that gives Mercedes its most affordable vehicle, and its most efficient one as well. It has a very firm ride and a snug rear seat, but performance should satisfy most drivers, while the AMG edition aims at harder-edged enthusiasts.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
