What kind of features does the GLA come with?
There are technically two GLA trim levels to choose from in the 2020 model year, the only difference is one is outfitted with FWD and the second is outfitted with AWD. Standard features include a power-adjustable driver’s seat, an 8-inch central infotainment touchscreen, a power liftgate, simulated leather upholstery, and a six-speaker sound system. Options offered for the GLA include keyless entry and ignition, heated front seats, a hands-free liftgate with open and close, and blind-spot monitoring. The available Multimedia package adds voice controls, navigation, and smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Can you tell me about the engine?
In the 2020 model year, each GLA is powered by the same engine. This 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine produces up to 208 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Power from the engine is sent through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission to the front wheels as standard or all four wheels with Mercedes Benz’s 4MATIC® AWD system. Drivers can have more control over the transmission with the steering wheel mounted shift paddles.
What about the GLA’s safety features?
The GLA comes jam-packed with safety features! Standard features for the 2020 model year include a rearview camera, LED lighting, active brake assist, blind-spot assist, crosswind assist, a suite of seven airbags, an electric parking brake, adaptive braking technology, and downhill speed regulation. There are a number of available safety features as well. They include evasive steering assist, active parking assist, adaptive highbeam assist, active LED headlamps, PRESAFE® PLUS, and a surround-view camera system. The standard ATTENTION ASSIST® feature is the first of its kind. This technology continuously monitors up to 70 parameters of driving behavior to alert the drive if drowsiness is detected with both audible and visual warnings.
