The latest SUV offering from Mercedes-Benz is directly targeting the urban types. The Mercedes-Benz GLA SUV starts at just $33k and has what it takes to compete with the BMW X1, Audi Q3 and other luxury SUVs in showrooms today.
The cute little Mercedes-Benz GLA SUV can get 54 miles per gallon and hit 60 miles per hour in 7 seconds. This is certainly not the commuter SUV of the past.
The Mercedes-Benz GLA rolled out in production form at the Frankfurt Motor Show and is now available. Drivers interested in a smaller SUV that does not sacrifice luxury and is quite affordable will delight in the fact that the GLA is also fuel efficient and powerful. The Mercedes GLA obtains a staggering 54 miles per gallon for the diesel version. The diesel version is not yet available in the States, and it is not clear if it will make the journey to our showrooms. The design cues are fresh and should serve the company well in its endeavors to attract the urban youth. This model is ideal for the young professional living in the city.
