What engine powers the GLA?
In order to get you where you need to go, a reliable engine is necessary for your journey. Thanks to Mercedes-Benz, the GLA is sure to capture your attention with an engine that will never give out on you. This engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder, which can output around 221 horsepower and up to 258 pound-feet of torque. The standard transmission is an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic that includes shift paddles behind the steering wheel. But that isn’t all! While front-wheel drive is the standard drivetrain, you also have the opportunity to choose all-wheel drive if you’re looking for added traction. In terms of fuel economy, the standard configuration gets you 25 mpg in the city and an impressive 34 mpg while you are on the highway.
What features come with this SUV?
Another major standout point for the GLA is the fact that it comes with one standard trim level that gets you all of the technology and comfort you could ever need. While the competition tries to hide features behind higher, more expensive trims, the GLA gives you everything at once. You’ll find blind-spot assist, four USB-C ports, dual-zone climate control, a multifunction leather-covered steering wheel, 18-inch alloy wheels, run-flat tires, keyless ignition, privacy glass, cruise control, split-folding rear seat, a seven-inch digital touchscreen, a seven-inch digital instrument panel, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, an MBUX driver interface, LED headlights and taillights, and a power liftgate.
What can I expect to find for safety?
Safety is something that is inherent in the design of the 2021 GLA. One of the standard features that we most want you to learn more about is Active Brake Assist. This system works by warning the driver whenever there is an impending frontal collision. If the driver applies the brakes at all, the system kicks in and adds pressure to shorten the overall stopping distance. However, if the driver doesn’t react, the system will apply the brakes itself. We also want to mention Active Blind Spot Assist, Hill Start Assist, Automatic Brake Drying, and Predictive Brake Priming.
