5 reasons to buy the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA250

1. Invigorating drive

If you're searching for a subcompact luxury SUV that redefines the joy of driving, look no further than the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250. This model offers two enticing trims: the GLA 250 and the all-wheel-drive GLA 250 4Matic. Beneath its stylish exterior is a 208-hp turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine, delivering a robust 258 lb-ft of torque, that pairs with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Whether navigating crowded city streets or conquering twisty country roads, the GLA250's turbocharged prowess and finely tuned suspension deliver a captivating performance.

2. Harmonizing performance

One of the defining characteristics of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 is its ability to blend performance and fuel economy. Thanks to its turbocharged engine, the GLA 250 has the power you need for easy highway maneuvers while keeping your fuel stops in check. With an EPA-estimated 24 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway when equipped with front-wheel drive, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 adapts to various driving scenarios, catering to your everyday needs.

3. Lots of features

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 is well-equipped with all the ingredients for a pleasant ride. The cockpit features a standard power-adjustable driver's seat, an eight-inch infotainment display, and a six-speaker audio system. There is also standard leatherette upholstery and a power liftgate for your comfort and convenience, but look out for the models with optional leather upholstery. Other available features include a panoramic sunroof, LED headlights, and a premium 12-speaker audio system.

4. Package options

If you want more advanced bells and whistles, you can look for 2020 GLA 250 models with Mercedes-Benz's array of packages. The Premium package, for instance, adds blind-spot monitoring, heated front seats, and a hands-free liftgate for your convenience.

5. Many driver aids

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 boasts several driver aids for your peace of mind. Active Brake Assist uses radar to automatically apply the brakes if it detects potential collisions with vehicles or objects ahead, while Distance Pilot Distronic (adaptive cruise control) maintains a safe following distance when cruise control is engaged on the highway. The GLA 250's lane-keeping assist also monitors your position and alerts you with steering wheel vibrations if you unintentionally drift from your lane. The result is a more comfortable and confident drive for commuting or taking road trips.
