  • GLA: Under the hood of the GLA 250, you’ll find a 2.0L turbo inline-4 engine that generates 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. Paired with a 7-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, it gets an impressive EPA-estimated 33 mpg highway/24 mpg city rating.
  • NX: Generating 235 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, the NX 300 has a slight advantage in power.

Comfort Features

Whether you’re grocery shopping in Menifee or cruising through Sun City, comfort is key. Once you’ve found the perfect driving position, you want your SUV to recreate it for you every time you slide behind the wheel. That’s why the 14-way power driver seat in the 2019 GLA SUV has a memory feature and power lumbar support, so up to three drivers can store their preferred settings. This feature is standard on every GLA 250, yet isn’t offered as standard on the NX.

Safety Features

One of the easiest ways to improve safety is to increase visibility. The new GLA continues to impress with standard features designed to help you see everyone and everything on the road. These two features are standard on the GLA 250 and are only optional on the base NX:

  • Memory-Adjustable Mirrors: The same driver memory function that instantly recalls seat positions also adjusts the external mirrors, so they’re angled just right to minimize your blind spots and help you keep tabs on surrounding vehicles.
  • Rain Sensing Windshield Wipers: Rain-sensing windshield wipers adjust the wiper frequency automatically based on the amount of rain, giving you clearer visibility in stormy weather.
