Subcompact crossovers have become huge in the automotive industry these days. They have even found their way to luxury brands like Mercedes-Benz. In fact, we have one of these small crossovers available for you here at Mercedes-Benz of Hilton Head. It's the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA, and it is some of the most fun you can have on 4 wheels near Bluffton SC while still retaining that crossover practicality.
The GLA is meant to be that perfect blend of sedan-like driving exhilaration, sportiness, style and SUV-like utility. Though it may not dominate the road like the GLS SUV, it does have a rather impressive 41.8 cu ft of maximum cargo space considering its size. Plus, like some of the other models in the Mercedes-Benz SUV lineup, it certainly isn't shy under the hood either. With a 2.0-liter turbo engine the GLA pumps out up to 208 horsepower and a heart-pounding 258 lb-ft of torque. Pair that with 4MATIC® AWD*, and you'll see that despite its small size, the GLA can provide you with that SUV practicality and utility you desire without the larger and bulkier footprint.
*Best performance on snow and ice obtained with winter tires. Please always drive carefully, consistent with road conditions.
Rather than having the personality of a rugged SUV that conquers the road with brute-force, the GLA is the fun and spirited option in the SUV lineup. This is made obvious in part with exciting color options like Kryptonite Green Metallic, Lunar Blue Metallic and Canyon Beige Metallic.
The fun continues with feature options like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, LED logo projectors and an illuminated star logo on the grille. The GLA SUV also offers a panorama sunroof, allowing you to have fun all year round. We also can't forget about the AMG® GLA 45 SUV, which equips the small crossover with a 375-horsepower AMG® engine delivering up to 350 lb-ft of torque, providing some extra zip that carries the GLA from a stop to 60mph in just 4.3 seconds.
There are many more exciting details we would love to share with you, but the best way to learn all about them is by getting behind the wheel. Wherever you are in the area, whether in Bluffton SC or nearby Savannah GA, Mercedes-Benz of Hilton Head can set up a test drive date and time online or over the phone. That way, everything is ready for you to take the GLA for a spin upon your arrival. We look forward to meeting you.
