The SUV lineup from Mercedes-Benz has expanded for 2020 with the addition of the GLB. While this model has received a lot of hype and attention, let’s not forget about the signature subcompact SUV that has stuck around for a few years now. Don’t underestimate its size. The GLA is a perfect option for drivers who want something more spacious than a sedan but with better fuel efficiency and easier handling than a larger SUV. For people like that, the GLA fits the bill. While we are just getting acquainted with 2020, the GLA is ready to hit the roads for the 2021 model year. Exquisite new features, an enhanced powertrain, and the famed Mercedes-Benz multimedia system can all be found inside. Check out the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA here in New London CT!

The GLA that you remember has been fine-tuned for a much-needed upgrade. The previous power output of 208 horsepower has been enhanced so the GLA now gets 221 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque in the base model. True performance seekers are sure to feel the difference. If you’re looking for a more powerful model, though, you’ll want to check out the all-new AMG® GLA 35. With similar engine specs as the AMG® CLA 35 Coupe, this model churns out 302 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Trunk capacity now has a larger interior with 15.4 cubic feet, and with 3.9 more inches of vertical space compared to last year, it will be more comfortable for taller people. The transmission has also gone from a seven-speed automatic to an eight-speed automatic.
The addition of the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) system is a much-anticipated feature, as it allows drivers to voice commands and have the MBUX system answer or perform them on demand. Other interior highlights include dual 10.25-inch display screens, Head-Up Display, genuine wood trim, interior ambient lighting, and a bunch more.
