You can schedule a test drive in the all-new 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class luxury compact SUV now. It’s arriving in showrooms and is available for a new generation of active consumers. A new millennial generation will be drawn to the new 2015 GLA 250 and GLA 250 4MATIC because of the initial price tag. But be careful with all those options because they will add up quickly and push the price up.

The new 2015 Mercedes GLA-Class is impressive and comes with 600 lb. of high-strength steel, great aerodynamics and impressive fuel economy. The styling is outstanding and will attract a new generation. The all-new GLA infuses unmatched elegance with the sort of rugged capability that Mercedes SUVs are known for.

GLA comes with many standard features

The GLA comes standard with lots of features to make life easier. GLA comes with 18-inch wheels, 8 airbags, chrome roof rails and a power lift gate and split folding rear seats for carrying extra cargo. It’s an ideal multi-purpose vehicle for those with active lifestyles.

GLA has undergone severe testing

Under neath it comes with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine mated to a 7-speed duel clutch automatic. Mercedes says the GLA mules were tested in over 1.1 million miles of extreme test-driving around the globe. This should help ensure trouble-free ownership as many buyers are concerned about purchasing a new untested vehicle.

4MATIC AWD for active lifestyles

Active buyers will want the 2015 GLA 250 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system with off-road features like Downhill Speed Regulation and the off-road display on the inside dash. GLA 4MATIC will be ideal for weekend recreation trips to the mountains and beach. This vehicle is rugged enough to go just about anywhere its owner wants to go.

Safety features on GLA

GLA-Class comes loaded with safety features and has been through 20,000 crash test simulations. It can be ordered with safety systems like Lane Keeping Assist, Blind Spot Assist, Distronic Plus , Attention Assist and Collision Prevention Assist Plus.

A new millennial generation will be drawn to the GLA 250 ($31,300) and GLA 250 4MATIC ($33,300) because of its starting MSRP. But if you load up on all the available options, its going to push that price way up. And if buyers opt for the high-performance GLA45 AMG ($48,300) it will be even more expensive. And then buyers have to add in $925 for destination and delivery.

The capable GLA250 4MATIC and performance-oriented GLA45 AMG are beginning to arrive at dealers across the country and you could be among the first to experience them. Schedule your test drive here. See what those options will cost by building your own GLA here.

Comments

"GLA comes with 18-inch wheels…" Mentioned as if these impractical wheels/tires are a positive – and most "reviewers" will herd-like repeat. With little rubber between the wheel-rim and road the ride will be rough, the wheels will get damaged, fuel mileage will suffer and replacement costs are high. Positives – little to none. For Mercedes and others: I will not be buying an SUV with 18,19,20,21,22 inch, ad infinitum, wheels. I'll leave the idiotic, uninformed, fad to others.
You're absolutely correct, but the big wheels fad is consumer driven; manufacturers are just giving buyers what they want. It is a case of the customer not being always right, though.
