The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class is a subcompact luxury SUV that seats up to five people.

What Features in the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class Are Most Important?

Automatic emergency braking is an important active safety feature, and it’s standard on the GLA-Class. Standard convenience features include a power liftgate, dual-zone automatic air conditioning and app-based remote start. Options include a panoramic moonroof, blind spot warning, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. 

Should I Buy the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class?

Best ever

This car is absolutely great. I have back problems and the seats are really comfortable. The drive is great. Best crossover I have purchased. Interior is nice too. And love the inside lighting.

Superior Automobile

Mercedes Benz vehicles' safety, performance, reliability, and accompanying service make owning a Mercedes Benz a sound investment. This purchase is my sixth Mercedes Benz vehicle. I highly recommend Mercedes Benz of Boerne to all of my friends and associates.

Love Driving it

I have owned two other Mercedes but I decided to purchase a SUV. It like driving a car. Good leg room in the back seat. Easy to drive and park.
