Mercedes GLA 2020 in-depth review - have they got it right this time?
This is the all-new Mercedes GLA! The baby of Mercedes’s SUV range has been updated to take on the likes of the Audi Q3 and BMW X1. But after a relatively poor showing in the last generation, does this jacked-up A-Class have what it takes, or are the competitors a better option for you? Mat’s taking a closer look, so stick around and join him for this in-depth review!

    Here in the US the Merc prices have skyrocketed. The base GLA 250 (slow, useless) with AWD are $44K on the dealer lots and these cars are really too small to be used as SUVs. Seriously, the RDX and XC60 are just so much better all around than the GLA. There is no reason to buy a non-AMG Merc anymore.

    Matt, you are reviewing a 43g car, not a 33g car. 43g can buy a GLC or X3. So many things in this video does not come in standard/lower trim. This is a useless review.

    You give such bias reviews, we can tell you hate Mercedes just by the way you review every single one of their models.

    Matt, just a slight correction the new Audi Q3 2020 version comes with Mild Hybrid system which means you end up with a 48v battery and DC-DC convertor in the boot eating into the available space and cannot lower the boot floor either ... argh....

  • Lubomir

    and the engines are Renault?

    The review missed out on the various suspension modes - comfort, sport etc. I don't bother with changing them (comfort is fine) but they are there.

    Why buy a GLA AT £43k when you can have ALMOST the same spec in a GLC AMG FOR same price just not that gimmick like LED DASH! Price structure totally does not make sense!


    It looks like the b class has swallowed an ox 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • DarthLai

    I like the new front and lights, but I don't like how bigger and fatter it got. I got 2016 GLA and it is much much sleeker, which I honestly prefer. Plus this new dashboard is a bit weird looking.

    I was test driving a 2013 merc C200 cgi 7Gtronic, when in the manual mode shifts upto 6th gear and after that it shows D. I dont know why this happened. I was driving it for the first time and the speed was around 45-50mph, not sure why the D appears after 6? Wasn't it supposed to shift to 7?? Can anyone help pls...Thanks

  • umbrellaman08

    For that price, I rather get a GLB or even a 2nd hand GLC/GLE. The price point for the GLA is way off.


    The price might be high but within 2 3 years it 15-19k


    pls do the review and drag race of the kia telluride

    Aggressive and fake.....even non functional exhaust vents...oh dear...what has Mercedes come much CO2, N0X, and particulates on the 0 to 60? and how wide is the turning circle? The infotainment looks good though. Looking forward to the fully electric version...

    With the discounts being offered on new cars you can now get a VW Touareg for under £40,000 (before you start adding options). Know which car I'd prefer for around 40K!

    Beautiful interior! Are European standards for diesel emissions lower than Canada & the US, because Mercedes, BMW and Audi have pulled all diesel models???

    Bought an original GLA 220cdi. Not great. Loads of teething problems that, unsurprisingly, started the moment the warranty ran out. £2000 to get it sorted with terrible Mercedes after service. Nice car now but a pain in arse to get it right.

    The design of these new Mercs is just dull af. Maybe even ugly I would say. I'm ok with the A, CLA and CLS class but the SUVs are terrible looking...

    If the aircon switch box is the same as the one in the A and B class it doesn't move at all unless you really move it with force, there is zero wobble when pressing switches or even pushing it with one hand.

    Jeez, the interior of this thing looks cheaper and tackier than a Qashqai. Stick to Audi's and Volvo's methinks, Merc have lost it.
