The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 is the entry-level, luxury compact SUV of the lineup. It competes with the BMW X1, Audi Q3, and the Lexus NX 200t. This year, it remains largely unchanged.

Two levels are available: the base GLA 250 and GLA 250 4MATIC.

The GLA 250 has a sporty, yet classy appearance, which features an aerodynamic front-end, a lean sculpted body, and chrome accents. Standard features include fog lights, power/heated side mirrors, a power liftgate, dual pipe exhaust, and 18-inch alloy wheels. Sport body styling, a carbon fiber package, Xenon HID headlights, LED headlights, LED taillights, a panorama moonroof, and larger 19-inch AMG wheels are available as well.

Under the Hood
Powering the GLA 250 is a standard 208-hp, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive (FWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD). Fuel economy for the GLA 250 with FWD is an EPA-estimated 25/35 mpg city/highway. It drops to 24/32 mpg for the AWD version.

Like other Mercedes vehicles, the 5-seat GLA 250 has a luxurious cabin made with premium materials. The center stack features a standard multimedia system that includes a 7-inch display and pre-wiring for the Garmin Map Pilot navigation system. Keyless entry, push-button start, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, and an emergency communication system also come standard. Optional features include the Garmin navigation system, a satellite radio, leather upholstery, wood dash inserts, heated fronts seats, a power passenger seat, and a Harman Kardon premium audio system.

The GLA 250 has an optional backup camera that displays a full 180-degrees as a new option. Adaptive cruise control, blind spot assist, lane keeping assist, an automated parking system, and rear side-impact airbags are also available. Standard features include forward collision warning with autonomous braking, driver drowsiness monitor, front airbags, antilock brakes, and an electronic stability system.
