The second-generation GLA packs big ideas into a compact footprint. Nearly four inches taller than the original, it's shorter in length to make it even more maneuverable. Slim LED headlamps draw the eye and the wind from the wide grille to the flowing contours of its muscular profile. Every detail is thoughtfully refined, from sleek aerodynamics to doors that extend below the side sills, for easier entry and cleaner exits. Big wheels, flared fenders and a rear spoiler assert its sporty character. Fine materials, forward-thinking technology and fresh style unite in a cabin that's equally practical and stylish, from the aircraft-inspired round vents to the reclining, 40/20/40-split rear seats. Digital instruments and displays, touchpads on the steering wheel and console and an industry-advancing voice interface elevate user-friendliness. And standard luxuries abound, like power front seats with memory, dual-zone climate control and a power liftgate. Sleek and purposeful, the roof rails accommodate a variety of available accessory attachments for carrying bikes, surfboards, skis, snowboards and cargo carriers. They're crafted from elegant aluminum that adds modern style even when you're not using them.
The 221-hp 2.0L inline-4 engine combines turbocharging with numerous advances to deliver more power from less fuel. Its rapid-multispark ignition and high-pressure Direct Injection can fine-tune themselves in milliseconds. Its twin-scroll turbo and CAMTRONIC variable valve lift help keep all 258 lb-ft of torque on tap from just 1,800 rpm. Clever CONICSHAPE cylinders slash friction to help reduce wear and fuel consumption. And a particulate filter helps make its emissions even cleaner. An ECO Start/Stop system automatically shuts off the engine at stoplights and other idle situations, to save fuel and reduce emissions. As soon as the driver lifts off the brake, the engine instantly restarts, for immediate acceleration response. The ECO Start/Stop system can also be shut off by the driver at any time. The new 8-speed transmission combines the sporty response of a manual, the easygoing refinement of an automatic and exceptional efficiency. Dual clutches offer quicker gear changes than a human can shift a traditional manual gearbox, while three overdrive ratios boost highway efficiency. The ECO, Sport and Comfort modes of DYNAMIC SELECT let you favor fully automatic efficiency and comfort, intensified response, or shift-for-yourself excitement via the steering wheel-mounted shift paddles. In any season, on any road, 4MATIC all-wheel drive adds to your confidence and control. Lightweight, nimble, this advanced generation of 4MATIC was developed to offer variable torque distribution to the front and rear axles. Continually monitoring for wheel slip, it can instantly send up to 50 percent of the engine's torque output to the rear wheels in response to changing driving conditions.
Intuitive, seat-shaped controls help you find your ideal driving position with 8-way power adjustment, including 4-way power lumbar support. A memory system for each front seat recalls three stored seat positions with the touch of a button. The driver-seat memory also includes the power steering column and side mirror positions. Both front seats also feature adjustable cushion length, for optimal thigh support and added comfort. The rear seatbacks fold down in a 40/20/40 split, letting you to expand the cargo capacity of your GLA in a variety of configurations, up to 50.5 cu ft. The seatbacks also recline up to 5.5 inches. You can also fold the center section independently, to fit longer items like skis between two rear passengers. The seatbacks can also be locked in a slightly more upright position, expanding the cargo area while still seating three rear passengers. Separate left and right temperature controls allow the driver and front passenger to enjoy personalized comfort. In addition to fully automatic or manual control of blower speed and airflow distribution, the system includes a dust and pollen filter that helps keep particles as small as 5 microns from entering the cabin. Five adjustable vents in the dash and a pair of rear-cabin air vents help maintain passenger enjoyment throughout the cabin.
Radar-based technology can alert you if you're approaching a vehicle ahead, or even some stationary objects, at a speed and distance that suggest a collision is likely. As soon as you start to brake, it can automatically provide an appropriate level of braking to help prevent a collision or reduce its severity. If you fail to respond, it can also initiate braking automatically at a range of driving speeds. The system can also detect and react to crossing pedestrians at typical city speeds. The first system of its kind, ATTENTION ASSIST(R) continuously monitors up to 70 parameters of driving behavior and can automatically alert the driver with both visual and audible warnings if it detects signs of drowsiness on long trips. With enhanced sensitivity, the system can also help detect drivers who begin their trip drowsy and offer more useful information to drivers along their journey via a dashboard display. Bright white LED Daytime Running Lamps help get the GLA noticed, for added safety and in modern style. Their distinctive angular design accentuates the subtle forward lean of the grille.
