2021 Mercedes-AMG GLA-Class Review, Pricing, and Specifications

overview

Performance adjustment genius in AMG I am entrusted with the hot rod every time Mercedes The model and the 2021 Mercedes AMG GLA class, and the turbocharged 4-cylinder, offered in either 302 or 382 hp, are the brand’s latest products.Based on a whole new one 2021 GLA classThe 302 hp GLA35 is said to deliver 5.0 mph from 0 mph to 60 mph, significantly improving suspension performance and making internal and external styling more lacy. NS Hotter 382 hp GLA45 It boasts a claimed time of 4.3 seconds from 0 mph to 60 mph. The outgoing GLA45 was an SUV garment hot hatch, and we hope that the same personality will be carried over to both new generation GLA class models.

New features in 2021

All. The new Mercedes AMG GLA35 and GLA45 are based on the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA class, which has been redesigned from scratch.

Price and which one to buy

The Mercedes AMG GLA class is available in both GLA35 and GLA45 outfits, both of which come standard with many performance features that heat up the Benz brand GLA250. Like the sports tune suspension, all-wheel drive is standard equipment. The 382 hp version of GLA’s Turbo Four makes the GLA45 model the most attractive in terms of performance, so that’s what we choose.

Engine, transmission, and performance

The AMG massaged 4-cylinder makes 302 horsepower with the GLA35, and Mercedes rockets the SUV to 60mph in just 5.0 seconds with the more powerful GLA45 it comes in in 4.3 seconds claimed by the same metric. Claim to be enough. In our tests, the outgoing GLA45, which generated 375 horsepower, created a certificate in 4.0 seconds, so Mercedes considers it conservative about the acceleration claims of the new model. AMG engineers have infused the new model with the same amount of athleticism as the previous generation GLA class, giving it a slightly better ride quality. Outgoing models provided very little suspension compliance and were penalized.

Fuel economy and real world MPG

According to the EPA, the GLA35 should provide a 23mpg city and a 29mpg highway. The more powerful GLA45 was thirsty than expected and won a rating of 20mpg city and 27mpg highway. These efficiency numbers are similar to rivals such as: BMW X2 M35i And that Mini Cooper Countryman JCW.. I didn’t have the opportunity to test the new GLA35 of the GLA45 model Fuel economy route on the 75 mph highway.. The X2 M35i managed an impressive 33 mpg on a 200 mile highway fuel economy test route, and the last generation GLA45 produced 28 mpg results.

Interior, comfort, and cargo

The 2021 GLA-class interior is more spacious for rear-seat riders than previous models, which is also true for the GLA35. The quality of the interior materials has improved and the interior design is very similar to other new Mercedes SUVs recently launched. The sporty look of the front seats, red stitching, red seat belts, flat-bottomed steering wheel and carbon fiber interior trim all give the AMG version of the GLA class a lacy feel. The cargo space is slightly larger than the outgoing model, and the loading platform is now level with the threshold for easy loading and unloading.

Infotainment and connectivity

Two giant 10.3-inch infotainment displays dominate the GLA-class dashboard. One acts as a reconfigurable gauge display and the other handles the infotainment system.The interface is new from Mercedes-Benz MBUX software, “Hey Mercedes” provides a voice control system, but can also be controlled via a touch screen or a touchpad attached to the center console. The system supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto features, but navigation is optional.
