The GLA packs big ideas into a compact footprint. Nearly four inches taller than the original, it's shorter in length to make it even more maneuverable. Slim LED headlamps draw the eye and the wind from the wide grille to the flowing contours of its muscular profile. Every detail is thoughtfully refined, from sleek aerodynamics to doors that extend below the side sills, for easier entry and cleaner exits. Big wheels, flared fenders and a rear spoiler assert its sporty character. Fine materials, forward-thinking technology and fresh style unite in a cabin that's equally practical and stylish, from the aircraft-inspired round vents to the reclining, 40/20/40-split rear seats. Digital instruments and displays, touchpads on the steering wheel and console and an industry-advancing voice interface elevate user-friendliness. And standard luxuries abound, like power front seats with memory, dual-zone climate control and a power liftgate. Sleek and purposeful, the roof rails accommodate a variety of available accessory attachments for carrying bikes, surfboards, skis, snowboards and cargo carriers. They're crafted from elegant aluminum that adds modern style even when you're not using them.
The 221-hp 2.0L inline-4 engine combines turbocharging with numerous advances to deliver more power from less fuel. Its rapid-multispark ignition and high-pressure Direct Injection can fine-tune themselves in milliseconds. Its twin-scroll turbo and CAMTRONIC variable valve lift help keep all 258 lb-ft of torque on tap from just 1,800 rpm. Clever CONICSHAPE cylinders slash friction to help reduce wear and fuel consumption. An ECO Start/Stop system automatically shuts off the engine at stoplights and other idle situations, to save fuel and reduce emissions. As soon as the driver lifts off the brake, the engine instantly restarts, for immediate acceleration response. The ECO Start/Stop system can also be shut off by the driver at any time. The 8-speed transmission combines the sporty response of a manual, the easygoing refinement of an automatic and exceptional efficiency. Dual clutches offer quicker gear changes than a human can shift a traditional manual gearbox, while three overdrive ratios boost highway efficiency. The ECO, Sport and Comfort modes of DYNAMIC SELECT let you favor fully automatic efficiency and comfort, intensified response, or shift-for-yourself excitement via the steering wheel-mounted shift paddles. In any season, on any road, 4MATIC® all-wheel drive adds to your confidence and control. Lightweight and nimble, this advanced generation of 4MATIC® was developed to offer variable torque distribution to the front and rear axles. Continually monitoring for wheel slip, it can instantly send up to 50 percent of the engine's torque output to the rear wheels in response to changing driving conditions.
Radar-based technology can alert you if you're approaching a vehicle ahead, or even some stationary objects, at a speed and distance that suggest a collision is likely. As soon as you start to brake, it can automatically provide an appropriate level of braking to help prevent a collision or reduce its severity. If you fail to respond, it can also initiate braking automatically at a range of driving speeds. The system can also detect and react to crossing pedestrians at typical city speeds. If an air bag deploys, your car can automatically initiate a call to Mercedes-Benz Emergency Services, transmitting your GPS-determined location and helpful vehicle information on your behalf. Trained experts are on call 24/7 to help summon local emergency responders to your location. You can also press the SOS button in the vehicle anytime you need emergency assistance, or see someone else who does. This vital service is provided for as long as you own the vehicle, no matter who's driving. The first system of its kind, ATTENTION ASSIST®(R) continuously monitors up to 70 parameters of driving behavior and can automatically alert the driver with both visual and audible warnings if it detects signs of drowsiness on long trips. With enhanced sensitivity, the system can also help detect drivers who begin their trip drowsy and offer more useful information to drivers along their journey via a dashboard display.
Intuitive, seat-shaped controls help you find your ideal driving position with 8-way power adjustment, including 4-way power lumbar support. A memory system for each front seat recalls three stored seat positions with the touch of a button. The driver-seat memory also includes the power side mirror positions. Both front seats also feature adjustable cushion length, for optimal thigh support and added comfort. The rear seatbacks fold down in a 40/20/40 split, letting you to expand the cargo capacity of your GLA in a variety of configurations, up to 50.5 cu ft. The seatbacks also recline up to 5.5 inches. You can also fold the center section independently, to fit longer items like skis between two rear passengers. The seatbacks can also be locked in a slightly more upright position, expanding the cargo area while still seating three rear passengers.
A leap ahead in automobile cockpit control, the Mercedes-Benz User Experience advances to the forefront of innovation. MBUX integrates digital in-dash displays including a touchscreen, touch-sensitive controls, Bluetooth®(R) hands-free and audio streaming and an available industry-advancing voice control system that responds to your everyday speaking voice and phrasing of commands. You can set up multiple user profiles of favored settings and groups of settings can be saved as themes or moods. A highly advanced system takes voice control to a fascinating new level. Memorizing fixed commands is a thing of the past and artificial intelligence makes the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) a future you can live today. Vehicle functions respond to natural, conversational phrases. For example, say I feel cold and MBUX can adjust the climate control. It even learns new phrases over time and responds with more flexible and friendly language as well. Two friendly words let you activate the voice control features of the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX). Just say Hey, Mercedes (or touch the voice control button on the steering wheel) and then tell MBUX what you'd like the car to do in everyday language, like you're talking to another person. Want the available MB Navigation to guide to a coffee shop? You can just say Hey, Mercedes, I need a coffee or ask it to find your favorite coffee chain nearby.
