There's nothing entry-level about this compact crossover. It combines the compactness and nimbleness of an A-class hatchback with the capabilities and muscular styling of the German carmaker's larger crossover SUVs. For 2018, the GLA gets a mild refresh to keep the stylish compact premium CUV competitive.
Two engines are offered in the local market, a 120hp 1.6-liter turbocharged gasoline mill, and a more powerful 154hp 1.6-liter turbocharged lump. Both powerplants are mated to 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.
