New Mercedes-Benz GLA Arrives Next Summer

The new Mercedes-Benz GLA 250, powered by a 221 horsepower inline-4 cylinder engine mated to an 8-speed dual- clutch transmission, is more than 3.9 inches higher and 0.6 inches shorter with the seating position for both the driver and the front passenger higher and more upright than in the predecessor model, offers a more spacious interior. The Driver Assistance Package includes the exit warning function alerting the driver to approaching cyclists or vehicles, and a warning when pedestrians are detected near crosswalks and the Active Brake Assist applies autonomous braking to avoid a collision or to reduce its severity.

The new GLA 35 has the AMG-enhanced 302 horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine mated to an 8-speed dual- clutch transmission and all-wheel drive. The new GLA launches in the U.S. in summer 2020.
