Mercedes GLA Class – 2014-Present
Mercedes GLA-Class History
As the Crossover frenzy keeps heating up automakers continue to turn sedan-sized cars into crossovers by raising them up and outfitting them with oversized tires. Mercedes has embraced the trend with the all-new Mercedes GLA-Class, which is a variant of the compact Mercedes CLA-Class sedan. That means the GLA’s dimensions are the size of a sedan but the ride height feels more like driving a Crossover. Regardless, the automaker says the GLA is athletic and sporty, and ready for whatever lies ahead. The GLA will compete against the likes of BMW X1 and Audi Q3.
