Do you like the style of the Mercedes-Benz CLA four-door coupe but need a little more headroom and a hatchback? The GLA-Class might just be for you. Mercedes-Benz has announced pricing for the subcompact, front- and all-wheel-drive car-based luxury SUV, and it's just $1,400 more than the starting price for the smaller CLA.

The new 2015 GLA250 will start at $32,225 (including destination charge) for a front-wheel drive, four-cylinder-powered model, rising to $34,225 for the 4Matic all-wheel-drive model. If the normal turbocharged four-cylinder isn't quite powerful enough for you, you can upgrade to the fire-breathing GLA45 AMG for $49,225 — quite a premium over a regular GLA250, but given the amount of additional go-fast equipment the AMG treatment brings, it could very well be worth it.
