GLA-Class Overview

Sitting in the Mercedes-Benz lineup as the smallest and most affordable SUV, the GLA class is the gateway to Mercedes Benz’s prowess in making some of the most capable SUVs in the market right now. The Mercedes-Benz GLA in Singapore is available in two variants, both of which are top-spec but have different petrol powertrains under their hoods. The GLA, in typical Mercedes-Benz fashion, is being offered with a host of exterior paint schemes, upholsteries and trim levels to choose from.

Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class Interior & Features

Step inside the cabin of the Mercedes-Benz GLA, and while it might not look as new age and futuristic as the cabins of the other new-generation cars from Mercedes-Benz, it still feels modern and premium enough to justify its premium positioning.

The driver’s cockpit welcomes you with a nice-in-feel Y-themed multifunctional steering wheel, with a pod-like instrument console with a nice looking MID in between the round dials. The layered theme for the upper part of the dashboard comes with soft-touch plastics and at the centre of the dashboard sits a free-standing infotainment screen.

The lower portion of the centre console has a nice propeller-like round AC vents, below which sits the control panel for the infotainment system. Below this sits the panel for the automatic climate control, which is a not too ergonomically positioned.

Given that it is a Mercedes-Benz product despite its smaller price tag and size, the GLA is packed with premium comfort and convenience features to the tee. However, what comes out as a major disappointment is the cramped seating at the rear, with the limited knee room and legroom making it a place best for two people at the back.

GLA-Class Exterior

The Mercedes-Benz GLA creates a sort of mixed bag of opinions when you see it for the first in actual – while there is no doubt that it is a stylish looking vehicle, it doesn’t look surely an SUV as how the company brands it. The low slung stance and sloping bonnet makes it look more like a jacked-up hatchback.

Having the quintessential Mercedes-Benz front fascia, the Mercedes-Benz GLA has a trapezoidal front grille with rounded edges, which comes with two thick slats of chrome having a studded design, with the large three-pointed star logo in between. The headlamps cool with their tooth-shaped design having LED projectors and inverted L-shaped daytime running LEDs. The skid plate at the bottom of the front grille adds some brawny appeal to the front.

It is from the sides when one can sense the hatchback like stance in the Mercedes-Benz GLA, thanks to the low roofline and sloping bonnet. However, in profile, the GLA looks stylish with smooth curves flowing over the rounded wheel arches.

There is much influence of rounded design elements at the rear of the Mercedes-Benz GLA, with the LED tail lamps having rounded edges and the scooped style for the rear roof-mounted spoiler. The thick looking silver skid plate on the rear bumper adds to the rugged appeal of the SUV.

Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class Ride & Handling

The Macpherson struts at the front and torsion beam at the rear of the Mercedes-Benz GLA are tuned for optimum agility, which shows up in the way it handles and rides. The ride quality is on a stiffer side, though not comfortable, and the multiple drive modes do make things easy on the go.

GLA-Class Engine & Fuel Consumption

The Singapore-spec Mercedes Benz GLA is a petrol-only model, with the SUV being offered with two turbocharged petrol engine options. The more affordable GLA 180 is powered by a 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine which makes 122 PS of power and 200 Nm of torque. The more premium and powerful GLA 250 gets a bigger 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine which produces 211 PS of power and 350 Nm of torque. Both engines are paired to a 7-speed DCT as standard.

Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class Braking & Safety

The Mercedes-Benz GLA gets some premium safety kit on board, like the front, side, and curtain airbags, ABS with EBD and brake assist, pre-safe occupant protection package, blind spot assist, lane keep assist, distance pilot and attention assist.

GLA-Class Verdict

The Mercedes-Benz GLA might not be a practical SUV, to begin with, with cramped rear-seat space and stiff ride quality limiting its daily usability. However, for those who live to be behind the steering wheel and admire beauty over the traditional SUV stance, the GLA is a good car to begin your luxury motoring with.

    No words can explain how happy I am with my experience of driving the Mercedes-Benz GLS Class. I always wanted to buy a Mercedes-Benz as I have been a fan of the brand since my childhood. The GLS Class perfectly fits my budget and is a premium SUV which I thought would be great for my personal use as well Read More

    Danial 21 Jul, 2021 for Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class

    This is a compact luxury SUV which comes with all the tech gizmos and comfort expected from a Merc. Honestly, I would not spend this much money on a 5-passenger SUV when I can have a proper 7-seater vehicle from other brands. My cousin took me for a test drive and I accompanied him. The build quality, credit goes to Read More

    The Mercedes GLA has always been my favourite in every sense. First, Mercedes Benz is my favourite brand, second the features in this GLA are world class and third, the car feels amazing to drive. The interior is just very sophisticated and the cabin is very comfortable for the occupants. And being a premium luxury car, the driver’s seat is Read More

    GLA class is the smallest and most affordable SUV of the Mercedes Benz lineup. Though I have a little extra love for SUVs, the brand name made me a little more inclined towards this GLA-Class. Despite driving this Benz for a little over a year now, this GLA-Class still gives me the exact amount of happiness it gave when I Read More

    I have been always inclined to the SUV cars and the reason why I chose this car was the brand itself. The Mercedes Benz G-Class can be termed as the best entry-level SUV in its segment. In my opinion, this is the best SUV that Mercedes has to offer at this price in the market of Singapore. The cabin deserves Read More

    I am a SUV fanatic and have driven quite a few compact SUVs in the segment of the Mercedes-Benz GLA Class. However, after owning and rigorously driving the vehicle for almost a year, this one is a clear winner. Coming with the classic Mercedes-Benz styling of modern ages, the car is equally impressive with its refined and luxurious interiors and Read More

    Chun Hwee 05 Feb, 2021 for Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class

    Even though Mercedes claims the GLA-Class to be a SUV, I think the stance is more of an extended commercial vehicle rather than a family car. The car is powered by a 13L, 4-cylinder turbocharged engine which produces an output power of 61 HO and a maximum torque of 250 Nm. One thing I love the most about this car Read More

    If you are looking for an entry-level premium car, you should blindly choose either the Mercedes-Benz GLA for SUV or CLA for sedan. I was more inclined towards an SUV and so bought the GLA-Class and believe it or not, it is the most amazing 5-seater SUV at this price point. The cabin is absolutely mesmerizing and everything is very Read More

    I have been owning the Mercedes-Benz GLA Class for almost a year now. Back when I bought it in August 2019, the shining white, elegant SUV has not failed to absolutely amaze me. Mercedes-Benz has given their best in both designing and engineering this car. I had been wanting to buy it ever since the GLA got the facelift and Read More
