What’s New for 2017
For 2017, Mercedes has made a handful of small but significant updates toe the GLA crossover. Mercedes has added both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as optional features, along with redesigning the GLA’s instrument panel. It also has a slimmer 8-inch touchscreen in the center console. A great new trim package, the AMG Dinamica, is now available and adds beautiful faux-suede to the dash and steering wheel.
A Smaller Luxury Crossover
Mercedes is offering a number of great luxury SUVs for 2017. The GLA is its most compact and maneuverable offering among this excellent group of vehicles. Based off Mercedes CLA sedan, the GLA luxury compact SUV is an affordable, nimble vehicle that doesn’t hold back when it comes to luxury or performance.
The exterior of the 2017 GLA immediately conveys style, luxury, and drivability. Its four doors blend seamlessly into the sleek, accented profile, and the understated rear spoiler adds a whisper of implied speed without dominating the rear’s subtle lines. The front grille is as attractive as drivers have come to expect from Mercedes, and it combines with well with the angled headlights, resulting in a vehicle that immediately catches the eye.
The GLA’s interior looks even better than its exterior. It has soft, attractive upholstery and a quiet cabin. The center dash looks great, and the dash is simple yet clean and well-laid-out. The rear row of seats are a bit on the small side—as they tend to be in compact vehicles—but still fits three in relative comfort, and the front seats have an abundance of space.
Under the hood, the 2017 Mercedes GLA has a turbo 2.0-liter engine that puts out an admirable 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. It matches that to a smooth shifting seven-speed automatic transmission, resulting in smooth, reliable acceleration from a complete stop or when merging onto the highway. The optional AMG GLA 45 trim model ups the power from the engine to a huge 375 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. With this exciting package, the GLA rockets from 0-60 miles-per-hour in a scant 4.3 seconds.

A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash.
