Small SUVs are a great way to find the balance between spacious and realistic vehicles. Whether you are just trying to have a bit more space than a sedan or if a large SUV isn’t plausible with the budget you have, the GLA is an easy option to choose.
With a starting MSRP* of just $33,950, the Mercedes-Benz GLA is one of the more affordable luxury SUVs you can get. Even with the affordable pricing, the GLA still has many attractive specs and features. You’ll start off with a satisfying 208 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. This gives you a 7.2-second acceleration from 0 to 60 miles per hour.
Like many of the Mercedes-Benz vehicles, the GLA has the 7G-DCT® transmission. This is dual-clutch automatic transmission. As you can see in the table below, both the power and the transmission of the GLA don’t quite match the XT4’s own. However, you won’t want to rule out the GLA just yet!
You can potentially find yourself with more technology features on the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA than you will in the 2019 Cadillac XT4. This includes features that are regularly sought-after, such as driver-assist technologies. The Active Brake Assist is standard on the base trim of the 2019 GLA, whereas you cannot get it on the base trim of the 2019 XT4. Likewise, you’ll have the option to add the Lane Keep Assist on your GLA. This is not a feature available to you if you are going for the base trim of the XT4.
So, you’ll have a bit less power in the base trim of the GLA than you will in the XT4, but you can find more standard and optional technology features in the GLA than in the XT4. Still not sure which one is right for you? Come on over to Mercedes-Benz of Arrowhead to take the GLA for a test drive!
