Whatcar? Review

For

It’s a refined cruiser with a nicely finished cabin, and SE models have a comfortable ride.

Against

It's not much more practical than a regular A-Class hatchback, and most models are expensive.

Summary

The Mercedes GLA is a worthy rival for the Audi Q3. Cheaper versions make most sense, so if you’re set on a GLA, go for one of those.

Performance

The GLA250 petrol and GLA220 CDI diesel have more than enough shove to ensure the car can cover ground quickly. They're both four-wheel drive and have a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox as standard; it's a fairly smart transmission. The front-wheel-drive 200 CDI, which gets a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, is brisk enough. The 355bhp GLA45 AMG feels every bit as fast as its 0-62mph time of 4.8 seconds suggests.

Ride & Handling

We've tried both standard 'comfort' suspension and the sports set-up, and with either the GLA rides pretty well, albeit no more comfortably than a non-S line Audi Q3. Body lean is well controlled, the steering is nicely weighted and 4Matic four-wheel-drive models feel sure-footed on wet roads. The GLA45 AMG is set up for agility, with suspension that's lower and stiffer. It still strikes a fair balance between body control and ride comfort, though.

Refinement

The GLA250 and GLA220 CDI are pretty refined. The petrol engine is smoother, but the diesel is noticeably vocal only if you force the gearbox to kick down abruptly. The GLA200 CDI is gruff when worked hard, but quiet when up to speed; on the motorway, you're more likely to be bothered by wind noise around the front pillars and by road noise. The GLA45 AMG is as rorty as you'd expect, with exhaust rasps every time you shift up a gear, but it quietens down surprisingly well when you're cruising.

Buying & Owning

Entry-level versions look pretty well priced, but the majority of GLAs are on the expensive side – and the GLA45 AMG is terrifyingly pricey. Running costs for the GLA200 CDI are the most appealing, with the same low CO2 emissions regardless of whether you have a six-speed manual gearbox or the optional seven-speed automatic. The GLA220 CDI has impressive running costs, too.

Quality & Reliability

The GLA's cabin is nicely finished, with a mix of high-quality plastics and metal finishes, and the dashboard switches and vent controls all feel solidly built. Mercedes scored well in the latest JD Power customer satisfaction survey, finishing fifth overall, ahead of Land Rover and Volvo but behind Jaguar and Lexus. Its reliability record isn’t so good, though; it finished in the bottom third in our latest reliability survey.

Safety & Security

There's no shortage of safety equipment as standard, with seven airbags – including one to protect the driver's knees – and a driver-fatigue monitor. Mercedes also offers a 'Driver Assistance Package' that brings a blind-spot monitor, lane assist and cruise control that keeps you a set distance from the vehicle in front, but it's an expensive option. The GLA was awarded the maximum five stars in its Euro NCAP crash test. An alarm and engine immobiliser are fitted to help deter thieves.

Behind The Wheel

As in other Mercedes models, you operate many functions by scrolling through menus with a single control dial that’s positioned between the front seats. Unfortunately, these menus aren’t especially well laid out, so the system can be distracting to use on the move. At least there’s a huge range of seat and steering wheel adjustment to help you get comfortable.

Space & Practicality

There's decent room for two adults up front, but there’s only average leg- and headroom for anyone beyond six-feet tall in the back. The rear door openings aren’t particularly wide, either. The boot is a bit larger than an Audi Q3’s, at 481 litres, but fold down the rear seats and it offers just 1235 litres, which is less than the Q3. A narrow boot opening can make loading the boot tricky, too.

Equipment

All GLAs get an infotainment system with a 5.8-inch colour screen, Bluetooth, DAB radio and an interface for external devices. Other standard kit includes air-conditioning, rain-sensing wipers and 18-inch alloy wheels (you get a different design of wheel if you opt for AMG Line trim, which also brings a bodykit and lowered suspension). Regardless of trim, you'll pay extra for leather seats, parking sensors and sat-nav, though – and these options aren’t cheap.
