Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class

A brand-new Mercedes-Benz GLA has launched in Australia, bringing improved interior quality and interior space to the luxury small SUV segment.

Based on the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, the GLA shares the same engines and interior treatment, but has an increased ride height and extra conveniences like sliding second-row seats.

Currently there are no plans to offer a diesel GLA in Australia, with high-performance models on their way Down Under.

If you want to add a Mercedes-Benz GLA to your garage, you’ll need roughly $50,000, with more expensive AMG models commanding a decent premium above that.

Rivals to the Mercedes-Benz GLA include the BMW X1, Volvo XC40, Audi Q2, and Mini Countryman.

How much is a Mercedes-Benz GLA 180?

The Mercedes-Benz GLA 180 is no longer sold in Australia. The cheapest variant in the GLA range is now the 200, which is priced at $55,100 before on-road costs.

What does GLA stand for in Mercedes-Benz?

GLA isn’t technically an acronym with a clear English translation but is part of Mercedes-Benz’s naming conventions. The G in GLA stands for Geländewagen (German for off-road vehicle), while L is a linking letter (and used on every SUV in the range), while the A denotes that the model is in the same small category as the A-Class hatch that is it is based on.

Does the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 have a spare tyre?

The Mercedes-Benz GLA does not have a spare, instead being fitted with run-flat tyres. Run flat tyres are designed to keep all parts of the wheel and tyre combo secure, even when there is no pressure in the tyre.

How to install a Mercedes-Benz GLA navigation SD card?

To instal the Navigation SD card, make sure the card is not locked (by flicking a switch on the left side of the card). Then you can insert the SD card into the appropriate slot (located in either the glovebox, lower dash, or centre console bin). After that, it is just a process of following the on-screen instructions.
