Small SUVs are a great way to find the balance between spacious and nimble 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 and works well for this small SUV. 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!

Advantages of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA

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 shoppers regularly try to find. This includes features such as driver-assist technologies. Thankfully, the GLA isn't lacking when it comes to these features. It has the Active Brake Assist is standard on the base trim of the 2019 GLA. As demonstrated in the table, you'll find that this feature is not on the base trim of the 2019 XT4. Likewise, you’ll have the option to add the Lane Keep Assist on your Mercedes-Benz GLA. Again, this is not a feature available to you if you are going for the base trim of the BMW 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 potentially find more standard and optional technology features in the GLA than you would in its competitor.
