More fun than it looks!

by Mark S. from Delafield, WI on Sun May 13 2018

The AMG version of this car is amazing - handling, power, more of a sports car than it looks. Mercedes calls the GLA a compact SUV. But it is small by American standards. I replaced (upsized!) my MINI Cooper S with the AMG GLA45, and it is a blast to drive - go-cart handling like the MINI, but also comfortable for four people. And I have had 4-Matic on other Mercedes, so I know it will handle the Wisconsin winters too.

No lease deals!

by JRS from Boca Raton, Florida on Mon Jul 09 2018

Too expensive to own since the lease I was quoted would be $ 1,000 a month; comparable cars are $400 + less to lease! I think I will lease a Jaguar E Pace instead!

Our Take on the 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GLA 45

The verdict:

The 2018 Mercedes-AMG GLA 45 is a hardcore hatchback with real-deal AMG feel.

Versus the competition:

There are plenty of $50,000 sports cars out there, but few are hatchbacks.

The 2018 Mercedes-AMG GLA 45 compact SUV is a bona fide AMG product just like the rest of Mercedes-Benz's high-performance, range-topping AMG lineup: It has a hand-built, 375-horsepower powerhouse engine under the hood and a totally unique driving experience compared with the regular  Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class. The AMG GLA 45 starts life as a little SUV — truly little; the GLA 250 is small for its class — and dumps the ride height thanks to a lowered suspension, then adds 167 horsepower and gets a 167-mph top speed.

New for 2018

There are few changes to the GLA 45 for 2018 besides a slight styling update up front. The tweaked nose has new, vertically slotted grille intakes... Read More
