We have had the car about 9 months and a couple things stand out. First, it takes some getting used to when driving in that it seems bigger than it is. This is due to the high hood line. It also has some challenging blind spots which require an extra level of attention. However once you get used to it, all is fine. The ride is good. Perhaps the transmission is a bit sluggish particularly if you are just lazying around, and the ride a bit hard, but again once you get used to it. I expect German cars to feel the road more than mushy Japanese SUVs. When compared to the Lexus NX, I would say the NX is a luxury ute and the GLA more a sport ute. Interior wise it is small, slightly smaller than my old Audi A3 hatchback. So if you are planning to carry a bunch of stuff/passengers, not the car. What is most interesting however, are the regular looks and comments we get. OK, our car is bright red so it attracts a bit of attention but strangers regularly comment on how nice it looks. Not just the color, but the whole package. I particularly like the looks of rear end. Even 9 months later I still think it is a nice looking car when compared to other SUVs. Would I buy it again: If the Macan got better gas mileage I might answer that differently, but until then, Yes without a doubt.

Fast pricey

It's fast in a straight line not to shabby in the corners. Very very small. I really want to get it out on the track I'll update then

Best vehicle I've owned, hands down!

Pros: Best drive quality in it's class, sporty and sit up higher Great visibility Very safe- standard safety features are fantastic top rated in its class in Europe by far Eco, Sport, Manual, and Off-road modes are alot of fun (especially sport and manual, lots of pep) MPG is very respectable Can get fully loaded for a reasonable price compared to other Mercedes-Benz vehicles that are fully loaded Bi-Xenon headlights are fantastic, really sharp daytime running LED strips Cons: Lumbar support for front seats is limited to lower and mid back Back Seats have limited head room Some of the materials on the interior feel cheaper compared to a c class (which is to be expected) No option for air conditioned seats No remote start (may just be my model I bought) So I was sold on the 2015 c 300, I loved it- the drive quality the refined interior, love at first sight! However, after driving the GLA250 it stole my heart. While the c300 had a more refined ride (smoother) and the acceleration was slightly better, the drive of the GLA250 was equally impressive plus it provides much better visibility and you just feel safer sitting up higher in the vehicle. While the c-class has minor upgrades (automatic headrest, heated windshield washer fluid, a few more soft touch surfaces) the GLA250 felt like a 'younger' car. Being 29 years old the styling of the GLA250 seemed to fit me better- a bit more modern, sleek, and it still has the same s class styles that are great in the c-class. It also feels like the GLA250 just has some more space as well. The mpg is also very impressive and I have had 0 issues with the car thus far. I also got an unbelievable deal on my 2015 GLA250 4matic certified pre owned and paid $33,000- includes Bi-xenon headlights, navigation/back-up camera, panoramic moonroof, 19" AMG rims and sport AMG styling, climate control etc original MSRP was almost $44K! I then paid an extra $2750 to take my CPO warranty to the next level: bumper to bumper up to 50K miles or 5 years, whichever comes first plus 3 years of unlimited miles bumper to bumper coverage and $0 deductible! I drive 50K miles per year for work and was told with confidence by MB that as long as the car remains within the warranty period they will always repair the car with no deductible; EVEN IF THE COST OF THE REPAIR EXCEEDS THE VEHICLES VALUE! So I can finish my loan out with 300K miles and have had $30K+ in repairs (not maintenance, that is obviously not covered) and would pay absolutely nothing and they would honor the agreement. Apparently, customers who drive this much are considered a 'bump on the chin' they are willing to take considering how few are able to take full advantage of the warranty. Easily the best warranty in America at the moment. Very happy and impressed with my 'new' CPO Benz!!!

I just finished the 1000 mile break-in period by doing a road trip and business meeting. So, I have limited mileage. However, I have found the car to be everything I wanted. I wanted a multitask vehicle to carry kayaks and ski's, do track time, carry the groceries and function in snowy mountains and hot summers where I live. This is a tall order and usually you would have at least two different vehicles. So let me list the best things first. 1. Style. I get lots of comments by people from car washes to parking lots who've never seen "one of these". I have the spoiler on my car which helps differentiate it and yells "performance car" as opposed to the normal hatch/SUV GLA. 2. Interior. It is sport and luxury. I have the red cut leather which covers the dash and gives you a lot of red highlights inside, even on the air vents. Everyone loves it. 3. Comfort. the sport seats are comfortable and I have taken five people in the car to dinner and back seats are fantastic, especially for this size car. I did about 1400 miles on the road trip, as much as ten hours in one day with no problem. Absolutely amazing seats. I expect they will be fine when I track the car, too. 4. Space. It's not a huge SUV but plenty of space in the back and passenger space. You have a pass through and a roof rack if you need to carry large stuff from Home Depot or kayaks, in my case. 5. Ride. The most amazing balanced ride. It is sporty but absorbs the small bumps well. I got the 19in tires. I have the optional damper system, as well and only used it once, but it is amazing. Will use it on track. 6. All things engine. Acceleration, sport settings and the main reason you get an AMG. I have not done the launch mode, yet. Sport setting is the way to go. Negatives: 1. Electronic system is complicated. I got my phone synched but still not for music, voicemail and even phone nav. Screwing around with buttons while driving is annoying. On the other hand, most the basic stuff like volume and drive systems are separate buttons. 2. Not really set up with phone holders or much for electronics like in the rear. Your phone will be in cup holder or ash tray. 3. Side mirrors do not flare out easily for the 180 degree field of view. Most sport drivers do this. You can get it at the very limit of the side mirrors but it buries the mirror in the housing and sort of tricks your eye to thinking there may be a car in the blind spot unless you look carefully. That is about it for now. I rated reliability as just good because no new car issues but I have not had it long enough to really make an accurate rating on that.

The only real downside to this car is that it is small. If you're looking for a big SUV or one with lots of interior space, this is not your vehicle. If you're looking for a car that can carry a little extra but is super fun to drive, this is your car. For the first few months of owning the car, I would look for excuses to go drive it. After more than a year of owning this car, I still look forward to getting behind the wheel. I purchased the premium package; I love the sound system too. Nothing like flying down the road with my favorite music sounding like I'm in a concert hall. The official review said that it was bumpy off the start. I haven't noticed that. I like the Sport mode that makes for more aggressive shifting. Great when speeding through curvy mountain roads. I've owned the Infiniti FX, Infiniti QX50 and Honda Crosstour (with V6). The GLA isn't as powerful as those cars but it gets better gas milage and the steering/handling is head and shoulders above the others.

My wife wants smaller, better gas mileage, high seating, luxury, and sporty. The only option is the GLA. The 250 was nice, but the 45 extracts a big grin. A perfect car for empty nesters who are young at heart. The professional (writers) reviewers don't seem to able to define this car. It really is in its own classification. Google "GLA 45 videos" to get a true feel for what this car is!

Want to drive it all day!!

I have had my GLA for two months now and like it more and more each day. It's a little quirky to get used to driving at low speeds. But once you get a feel for it, the experience is very good. It's truly an enjoyable car to drive. Find myself thinking of excuses to go places just for the chance to drive it. Drove my GLA in one of the worst snow storms I have been in and it handled perfectly. This was due to the all wheel drive and great overall feel of the road you get from the steering. My first bens and won't be my last!

My first Benz! I love it!!!

The Eco drive takes a little getting used to. I wish it had an option to turn it off completely. It resumes every time the vehicle is started. A little frustrating when in stop and go city traffic. Other than that, I love this vehicle. The areas that I find a little fault with are very much compensated by the quality of the vehicle overall. I would purchase this car over and over again. I looked at and drove many different vehicles before making this purchase. I have zero regrets!!

My wife and I love the GLA. We narrowed our search between the GLA, BMW X1 and the Audi Q3. In my opinion all three cars rode very well, and we almost purchased the X1, until we saw the GLA. The GLA's interior and exterior far exceeded the out of date X1. The GLA is fun to drive, has plenty of power, mpg is good, it sits high and is very comfortable and is reportedly very safe.

Love it!

Make sure you know what package you want and what features/upgrades are included. (Mine came with one that had a weird combo of things like leather with no heated/vented seats, no satilite radio, no rain sensing windshield, but other nicely upgraded features...) It's the little conveniences that are missing that irk me, but I love the car and that's what it comes down to.

What could be better!

Very nice car. Attractive look. People told me a number of times " what is nice car". You rarely hear for average car. Back seat is good enough. I have two kids (9 and 4) and checked car seat first. Fits nicely. Cargo is ok. Mileage is outstanding (26.8 after 1 year - 9000 miles, mostly city). Highway - around 32 mpg. My only disappointment was you cannot switch permanently from eco to sport mode etc. Eco is defolt and you need to switch it every time if you would like to do it (finally I was lazy enough to do it and currently drive in eco mode). No complains.

Not thrilled

Generally, this car is just basic. Nothing too exciting. The ECO drive feature is dangerous and unusable in the city. It frequently just revs when the accelerator is depressed in the ECO mode, until suddenly the accelerator kicks in. I have narrowly missed being in several accidents and no longer use ECO ever. In general the car does not have much punch, accelerates slowly. We previously had a BMW 550, I know- apples and oranges, still it's disappointing. Finally, the headrests on the front seats are poorly designed. I am 5'4", an average height for women, and the headrest is too high in its lowest setting. I have developed chronic neck pain from these seats. It is easy to park in the city, especially with the rear cameras. I do wish it had keyless entry for safety reasons. And it's cliche but there really is nowhere to put a purse. The console between the front seats has the dial to control the functions panel and it frequently gets bumped by my purse, arm etc. suddenly changing functions such as radio station etc.

250 4 matic sport package. Pros: great looking car, fun to drive, good mpg's, stylish interior, 4 year warranty w/ roadside assistance included, safety features, coldest air conditioning I have ever felt and lastly with awd option it goes through any weather condition in style ; ) Cons: price with all the options, back seat leg room for taller passengers and suspension is a little stiff on bumpy roads. Overall I'm very pleased with my GLA.

My wife and I looked at a lot of suv's and cars before buying our gla. It wasn't the cheapest or the most spacious but what it's defidtly not, is the same boring car or gas guzzling monster suv you see everywhere . It's a head turner and it shares the same heritage as the most exspensive Mercedes. If you listen to all the rhetoric from every critic on the net you'll never feel secure buying anything. You won't be disappointed if you buy one.

I bought this GLA 250 4 Matic on September14th 2015 . It was my dream to own a mercedez , but unfortunately the next day after delivery of this vehicle I found noice in the front axil while I turn the vehicle to left or right side.I took the vehicle back to the seller and they found that the front axil is defective. They ordered for replacement , But I don't know how long will it take to get them here.My question is how could the one of top rated mercedez cold deliver such defective vehicles out of factory! I am really disappointed. So my advise to new buyers of this vehicle is that , please double check the axil before you take the delivery of this vehicle otherwise you may not notice the problem until the the warranty is over. I didn't even drive 200 km after purchase. I live in British virgin Islands, Carribbean. Update: After 3 months they replaced the CV joint, but still giving the same problem, took back the car to the service , they ordered anot her set, 4 months now, still no word from the company, waiting patiently for the part to arrive. Very much disappointed.

Lots of the criticism of this car is ride quality. That's like criticizing a Porsche Boxster because it doesn't ride as smoothly as a VW Jetta. This car in the GLA-45 incarnation is a small beast. We got the performance exhaust, which I would highly recommend to anyone who wants the sound of snap crackle and pop when decelerating or starting up. The sound is just entertaining and roguish. The car's handling is just about perfect. The paddle shifters give you the control to make driving the car unbelievably fun. On one occasion we took it in for a precautionary visit at the dealer and we were introduced to Mercedes service, which in our experience was a cut above that of other premium cars we had owned (Jaguar, BMW, Porsche, Cadillac). The car's aesthetics are eye-catching and we get lots of comments on the sporty look of the GLA-45. The interior is well thought-out and comfortable. The Recaro seats provide a tight yet very adjustable sports seating experience. We had the Porsche Macan on the short list, but it is SO MUCH MORE expensive (even without the turbo option) and we've never regretted the decision to go GLA. The only downside we've noticed, and you'll read it in all the reviews is a lag in initial takeoff acceleration. It's certainly not there in any other gears. Shifting and acceleration are wonderful in all situations except the one you'll experience from zero to 10 MPH. It's like a turbo lag... but that's not what it is. We're hoping that a firmware upgrade in the car's computer will be available in the future, since this is obviously a logic issue. If you're not drag racing, it won't bother you. The car reviews wonderfully, because even though all reviewers mention this lag, what happens once the lag has passed is pure driving pleasure.

A well thought out SUV that has a unique design

I've had the car for 18 months, and overall have been happy with it. It get's great mileage, and the drive quality is quite good. Slightly more road and wind noise when compared to other MB models. Interior quality is excellent, instrument layout is very good, except the navigation screen seems somewhat out of place. Ample cargo space, especially with rear seats folded. Since this is a new model, MB has some perfecting to do. What I find surprising is that since its introduction to the North American market, this particular model hasn't really taken off, I rarely see any in California. My sense is that MB may discontinue this model, similar to the discontinued GLK model. New GLC & GLE models are hitting the MB dealerships and have certainly peaked interests of new buyers. In the mean time, I continue to enjoy my GLA250 4Matic and its reliability, as well as the many compliments I have received from onlookers.

its a beauty and quite a great price

I got the sea blue and boy does it turn heads. Its my first automatic in years, which is a bit of a bummer because off the starting line it can be less than exciting. The Sport mode changes everything quickly- i love it. Gas mileage on highways is superb, gas mileage through the town is just ok. I really like the car a lot, and I adore it's looks. I wish the nav didn't misunderstand every single thing I say- it makes it easy less convenient than just talking to Siri on my iPhone through bluetooth. I wouldn't pay for that next time. Back seat isn't perfect, but you don't buy a car this size hoping for a giant backseat. I really find myself paddle shifting more than I expected, and I really like the sunroof and stereo quality. The climate is almost too cold. Great color. My first Benz and I significantly like it more than my husbands new c250 coupe.

One week in but I love it.

I just got the car after procrastinating for a couple weeks. I had been looking at the X1, V60 and the GLA. the X1 felt cheap and the V60 wasn't equipped the way I wanted. I searched other CUV class vehicles and came up with the GLA. Took a drive and was hooked. I let it sit for three weeks the. Felt terrified someone else would buy it Overall, it's great. Good power fun equipment and great gas mileage I'll report more later but ow I'm in love.

I have been driving the GLA250 for about a half year. Absolutely no problems. It was parked outside in last year's Boston extreme winter and drove in the snow and ice like a champion. The car is a delight to drive. Fast with average 26 mpg (90% city, 30-31 mpg on highway at brisk speeds). I find the GLA a beautiful design and I received many compliment for it (often from Europeans who value the practical hatchbacks more than US drivers). What I don't enjoy is the wind noise on the highway, the very little leg room in the back and the low roof line at the front (I am 6'2")....but all those are compensated well by overall joy driving this car. I tested the BMW X1 and Audi Q3. Nothing changed after a year and a half. The car goes to a Mercedes dealer's service once a year. In between only gas and windshield washer tanks need fill up. Not even the tires needed air since I bought the car. Recently the rear hatch opening stopped working. The remote and door opener of the hatch door are OK. Next time I go to the annual service I'll address this. I am glad to see quite many GLA250s in the Boston area. After two years Mercedes finally updated the transmission's economy setting. It is better but does not match the current model's many options. I had no technical problems in the first two years.

This car is amazing

Since taking delivery of my GLA in November 2014 I have grown to love this car. Although it my wife's car I can't get over how fun it is to drive. The smooth quite power is amazing the first time I really appreciate this car I was cruising on the FWY at 70 in 7th gear, I needed to accelerate quickly, pressed the gas pedal and the car just took off and never changed a gear. It's big enough for my golf clubs and luggage for 2 and that's all that matters to us. we did buy the GLA for cargo space just wanted a fun economical car for weekend getaways!

When I first bought this car, I was in love with it! Within the first 2 months of driving it, an error popped up on my dash. The dealership told me that my steering wheel module was not working and that the part was on back order, coming from Europe (30 days). You can imagine my disappointment. If that part is on back order you think to yourself, this must happen a lot! I'm almost second guessing buying a Mercedes.

GLA45 one of the fastest CUV ever, if not the fastest!

0-60 in just 4.2 sec and runs the 1/4 in 12.8 at 109 ... and it is a 4 cylinder! Handles great, sounds even better with the race exhaust. I looked at the SQ5 and found the outdated shape not thrilling anymore ... Looked at the Porsche Macan but the price with options and the wait time seemed outrageous and then add the maintenance cost and the fact that it rides like a truck ... I looked at the new Lexus NX but the lack of power and handling seemed weak at best. Same thing with the Q3. The GLA 250 seemed to be the better deal ... until I tested the GLA45 ... the rest is history.

Fun crossover/hatchback but not an SUV.

I've had it for a few days, very good car, fun and easy to drive. I would not consider this an SUV since its sedan height. I am short and if you move the seat up you have very limited headroom. Also, wish the keyfob had a hatch close button on it and not just open. You can only close from hatch or in car. Other than that so far so good. Back seat roomy. Front seats comfortable. Small side mirrors wish they were alittle bigger. Very fun to drive. Good on gas.
