The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA SUVs

If you’re shopping for a stylish SUV with strong performance, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA—available now at Mercedes-Benz of Chicago—should be on your shortlist! Its potent turbo engines offer a punch of power, while conserving fuel and reducing emissions. Behind the wheel, you’ll enjoy access to top performance, infotainment, and safety technologies, as well as creature comforts. Even compared to competitors like the BMW X1, the GLA takes the gold in most categories. During daily errands or family trips, the configurable cargo area takes the hassle out of loading and unloading items of various sizes. See what else the GLA can do for you and your family below!

Efficiency That Takes You Further

The 2019 GLA SUVs are driven by two advanced turbo engines. The standard turbo 4-cylinder, which powers the GLA 250 and GLA 250 4MATIC®, generates a cool 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, allowing the GLA to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just over 7.0 seconds. Handcrafted by AMG® Master Engine Builders, the Mercedes-AMG® turbo 4-cylinder found inside the AMG® GLA 45 creates 375 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque and carries the AMG® GLA 45 to 60 mph in a mere 4.3 seconds. Other notable specs and features for the GLA include:

  • ECO-START® technology
  • Versatile 4-wheel independent suspension
  • Electromechanical power steering
  • AMG® High-Performance Braking System (AMG® GLA 45 only)

Adaptive Handling in Any Condition

Whether you’re navigating Chicago or hitting the open road, the GLA responds to your every whim. Responsive and fuel-efficient, the 7-speed automatic transmission lets you upshift and downshift via the steering wheel-mounted shift paddles. Standard on the GLA 250 4MATIC® and AMG® GLA 45, the lightweight 4MATIC® all-wheel drive system can send up to 50% of engine torque to the rear wheels to prevent wheel-slip. Meanwhile, DYNAMIC SELECT® adjusts shifting, as well as throttle response and steering, to accommodate all types of terrain and driving styles. You’ll have a choice between the following modes:

  • DYNAMIC SELECT®: ECO, Comfort, Sport, and Individual modes
  • AMG® DYNAMIC SELECT® (AMG® GLA 45 only): ECO, Comfort, Sport, Sport+, Individual, and optional RACE modes

Contemporary Interior with a Homey Feel

From its Sail Pattern trim to its freestanding 8-inch display, the 2019 GLA exemplifies a classic SUV with a modern twist. A smart addition to your morning routine, Remote Start via the Mercedes me app starts the engine and pre-conditions the cabin up to 10 minutes before you enter. The power driver seat stores up to three positions for the seat and side mirrors, while the length of the front-passenger seat cushion can be adjusted for greater thigh support. Complete with a central controller, the central display connects you with Bluetooth®* phonebook contacts and accesses Apple Maps via optional Apple CarPlay®. From start to finish, the GLA promises a comfortable, entertaining journey, thanks to the following:

  • MB-Tex® upholstery
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Ambient interior lighting
  • CD player with MP3 capability
  • Dual USB ports
  • In-dash SD card reader
  • Optional HomeLink™ garage door opener
  • Optional COMAND® navigation

Practical Cargo Space and Features

Spacious and flexible, the interior of the GLA effortlessly adjusts to you and your family’s ever-changing needs. Folding the 60/40-split rear seats down creates up to 43.6 cubic feet of cargo space, while leaving them in place gives you 17.2 cubic feet. To keep your belongings safe and secure, these features are also standard on the GLA:

  • Power liftgate with a built-in proximity sensor
  • Fully carpeted cargo area
  • 12-volt cargo-area socket
  • Side panels with integrated mesh nets
  • Underfloor storage compartment

Above-and-Beyond Safety

Reinforced with all of the latest safety advancements from Mercedes-Benz, the 2019 GLA has what it takes to keep you and your family safeguarded. Standard projector-type front fog lamps make you more visible to other drivers on the road, while the AMG® GLA 45 SUV’s LED headlamps give you a clearer scope of straight-ahead areas. All the while, Active Brake Assist watches out for possible frontal collisions with slowing or stopped vehicles on Chicago roadways, and, if necessary, applies the brakes autonomously to prevent or lessen the severity of an accident. Although impressive on their own, those features don’t even scratch the surface of the 2019 GLA SUV’s safety arsenal, which includes:

  • Eight airbags
  • Rain-sensing windshield wipers
  • SmartKey® with KEYLESS START®
  • Optional Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC®
  • Optional Blind Spot Assist
  • And more!
