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.

The AMG GLA 35 comes with a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol that kicks out 302bhp and 295Ib ft of torque. That's enough for 0-62mph in just 5.1sec, but the engine could be a bit more tuneful.
