Mercedes-Benz GLA SUV

Model Overview

Consider the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA for Superior Style and Versatility

High-performing, sporty, and modern, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA quashes the idea that SUVs can’t hit all the marks. Offering robust horsepower, torque, and available all-wheel drive, these SUVs serve as versatile yet luxurious family vehicles. If you’re shopping for an upscale SUV around Northern California, why not start with the new GLA inventory at Mercedes-Benz of Marin?

Available Driver Assistance Tech

The most crucial areas of the GLA, including door beams, roof pillars, and floor/roof crossmembers, are constructed from high and ultrahigh-strength steel. In the event of a collision, its specially-designed front and rear crumple zones absorb impact energy, which helps keep occupants out of harm’s way. Meanwhile, its high-strength and intelligently designed rear protects drivers and passengers from the back, making the GLA SUVs comparatively compact and tough. For added protection, Driver Assistance packages are available, and include:

  • Blind Spot and Lake Keeping Assists
  • Distance Pilot DISTRONIC® Cruise Control

Competitive Performance

Unlike ubiquitous SUVs, the GLA family offers plenty of horsepower. Powered by a 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine, the series generates anywhere from 208 hp to 375 hp. As you zip down open stretches of highway, you’ll likely forget you’re behind the wheel of an SUV. While the GLA delivers high performance, San Francisco Bay Area and Marin drivers can expect the practical fuel economy characteristic of a sports utility vehicle. With a maximum EPA-estimated rating of 25 mpg city/35 mpg highway, these SUVs are as powerful as they are efficient.

Versatile and Customizable Handling

With available 4MATIC® all-wheel drive, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA series offers easy-going, fluid handling. Each GLA SUV comes standard with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission with shift paddles, offering both automatic and manual capabilities in one advanced machine. The expertly-designed suspension systems add a sporty, breezy touch to handling. What’s more, the GLA includes a multi-mode drive program, which rearranges vehicle settings to deliver the best driving experience possible.

Athletic Design Bumper-to-Bumper

Featuring attractive trimmings, Star-stamped grille, privacy glass, optional panorama roof, and more, it’s easy to see why this series stands out among competitors. Sculpted with faceted contours, the GLA strides down city streets and highways with flared side sills and wheel arches. Inside, its well-organized cabin ensures driver and passenger comfort, while its 41.8 cubic feet of trunk capacity guarantees plenty of storage. The 4.5-inch color cluster display, hooded dash, circular air vents, and flowing center console create a cabin that’s unmistakably Mercedes-Benz.

Variety of Convenience Features

The GLA family’s modern interior includes a wealth of standard convenience features, such as 60/40 split-folding rear seats, roof rails, power liftgate, driver memory settings, and cruise control. By opting for the Premium package, you’ll kick the interior of your GLA SUV up a notch with heated front seats, HomeLink garage door opener, integrated compass, auto-dimming rearview mirrors, and more. With so many comfort and convenience gadgets at your disposal, personalizing your 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA is easy and exciting.

Endless Entertainment Options

Marin County, San Francisco, Contra Costa County, Alameda County, and Napa County families will find plenty of entertainment features to enjoy while on the road. From Bluetooth®* connectivity to smartphone integration and HD Radio, these SUVs add a flare of excitement to any journey. You can also tack on as many optional features as you want, be it advanced voice control, TuneIn® world radio, or in-car Wi-Fi. Whether you’re running daily errands, or heading out of town on vacation, the trademark luxury of Mercedes-Benz will make every mile memorable.
