2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 Review
Too many brands’ entry-level vehicles feel cut down, from cramped interiors to feature lists that seem like an afterthought. But since the Mercedes-Benz brand has a reputation to uphold, even an entry-level crossover like the all-new 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 shows the same attention to detail and robust feature set visitors to Mercedes-Benz of Burlington have come to expect.
2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 Details
The last generation of this crossover had styling and performance reminiscent of a hatchback rather than an SUV, and the next-generation 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA doubles down. It’s wider and taller for better interior space, and while overall length is slightly shorter, the wheelbase is longer for better handling. It also gets a boost to 221 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque — which is significant — and is paired to a new eight-speed transmission.
Opt for 4MATIC® AWD and you’ll be treated to the off-road package as standard equipment. And if you wanted further proof that this is no ordinary entry-level crossover, you’ll find it in the two Mercedes-Benz AMG® crossovers sharing space in the lineup with the “standard” Mercedes-Benz GLA 250, offering the high horsepower and agile handling that are hallmarks of the company’s in-house tuners.
2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 Safety and Special Features
The interior of this new Mercedes-Benz SUV is even more radical than the exterior. The instrument cluster and center stack are more streamlined, topped off with a pair of seven-inch TFT touchscreens, one of which houses the gauges and the other of which provides easy access to the MBUX infotainment system.
Your Mercedes-Benz dealer in Burlington will show you options like larger infotainment displays, and a profusion of active safety features. The latter includes an electronic brake hold feature, a Parking Assistance Package, and a Driver Assistance Package that includes active distance assist, lane keep assist, speed limit assist, and much more.
