What's New in the 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA 45 AMG?

The 2015 GLA-Class is an all-new model. 

Which GLA 45 AMG is the Best?

Stick with the base GLA250 or GLA250 4MATIC. The GLA45 AMG makes for a thrilling test drive, but is it worth the extra $15,000 or so? In our opinion, the GLA is all about value, so the more affordable models are where it's at. Find a Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class for sale

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class is offered in GLA250, GLA250 4MATIC and GLA45 AMG trim levels.

The GLA250 ($32,225) comes standard with features such as 18-inch alloy wheels, a power lift gate, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, premium vinyl upholstery, power front seats, memory settings, the COMAND infotainment system with a 5.8-in display, Bluetooth (phone and audio) and an 8-speaker audio system.

2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA 45 AMG vs the competition

Audi Q3 -- The new Q3 is the GLA's primary rival, offering similar turbocharged power and all-wheel-drive traction. We give the Q3 the edge in interior quality, but the Benz is more fun to drive.

BMW X1 -- The aging X1 doesn't quite have the GLA's curb appeal, but it compensates with a superb rear-wheel-drive chassis and an available 6-cylinder engine.

Infiniti QX50 -- Like the X1, the QX50 is an older, more performance-oriented crossover, and its V6 engine packs a serious punch with standard 325 hp.

Used Audi Q5 -- The Q5 is a bit larger, but it's nicer inside and offers a variety of desirable powertrains.
