Review

Classy, comfortable and well equipped, the Mercedes GLA is one of the better prestige family SUVs, but some rivals are cheaper and more practical.

get the best price

Even though this is the cheapest trim, you still get 18in alloy wheels, keyless entry and start, climate control, heated front seats and a 7.0in touchscreen infotainment system with sat-nav and a DAB radio.

We’re still waiting to try this entry-level petrol engine, but it’s no ball of fire in the A-Class hatchback and is likely to struggle in the bigger, heavier GLA.
