Great Vehicle - Excellent Experience

I can say that I have wanted a Benz for many years. I?ve owned more expensive domestic vehicles with many comfort features, but what struck me the most is that even on this entry level model I can tell it?s better built than anything I?ve owned before. Gas mileage is excellent so far and while I?m not necessarily comfortable with the idea of 10,000 mile service intervals, everything I?ve read and everyone I?ve talked to who has owned a Benz has said the same thing so I guess we will see. The auto start/stop feature can be mildly annoying, but every vehicle I?ve ever driven that has been equipped with it has always required that it be turned off every time the car is started and this one is no different. Rear seats can be a little cramped if you?re over 6 foot, but otherwise they do the job. I?ve seen a lot of people saying this isn?t a real SUV and it isn?t. It?s a crossover but it doesn?t really compare to a hatchback as some suggest. I?ve heard some bad reports with the transmission being harsh and I can say that in my case that hasn?t been the experience, but I also had a manual transmission prior to this vehicle so perhaps I am more forgiving than someone who had a super smooth transmission previously. Easily the best feature is the thigh/knee supports that pull out. It?s like driving from a recliner and it?s amazing. The ride quality is excellent, though again my previous vehicle was a track ready performance vehicle so I prefer a firmer ride which the GLA certainly has.


Great Starter Mercedes

Car looks great, highly recommend getting the night package with a lighter color exterior for a better contrast. 0-60 in about 6.7-7.1 seconds. Not ideal, but it's a great starter Mercedes if you are still looking to build your wealth.


Replaced my totaled 1999 SL 500 temporarily

I absolutely love everything about this car except the trunk size which barely scrunches my golf clubs inside. The ride is exquisite and the interior is more beautiful than the outside. I find it hard to believe it is priced so reasonably!


Most Coolest Car

The driving is very stable and comfortable. It met all our expectations with heated front seats which will be great during the winter months in New England.T he front seat adjustments are all conveniently located on the door. Another cool feature is the ability to take of your foot from the brake while idling.. no need to put the car in park mode. I can keep on raving about this car but you will know what I am talking about, once you test drive it


Ideal for my needs

Meets my expectations. Perfect height to transfer my mother from her wheel chair into the car without my having to strain my back. Powerful enough to for a small car and comfortable.


I love this car!

My wide drives a GlC and it is a great car but too big for me. This is the perfect compromise. A true classy Benz that is a blast to drive. Solid, quick and quite sexy. A great choice


I truly love my 2018 Mercedes Benz Gla250

This car meets all my needs, its comfy has lots of features, I love the ride and all the technology it has! Its also super for hauling grandchildren groceries etc! I am very happy with my car!


Value for the money

It met my needs , I just expected that there will be front camera but have only back-up camera. Leg room good enough , I like it so far.


Mercedes-Benz GLA250 Best First SUV

I purchased the Mercedes-Benz GLA250 because I wanted a small SUV that would ride like a luxury car. The GLA250 is awesome and so much fun to drive. The seats are very comfortable and you can adjust the lumbar support throughout the seat. The collision avoidance safety feature is a comfort for me as well. I feel safe in this car which is important.


beautiful car, just the right size for me and very

this car kept me from getting injured seriously in an accident. i have all the safety features with the beauty and comfort level of this car.
