The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class blends hatchback with crossover, with better than mixed results. The Mercedes-Benz GLA is the foot in the door for many luxury buyers. Its low price and three-pointed star will tempt many shoppers into the showroom, and it's Mercedes' first real small car in a generation. The GLA arrived in the 2015 model year, and for 2018 gets a light revamp. All models—the front-drive GLA250, the all-wheel-drive Mercedes GLA250 4Matic, and the run-and-gun Mercedes-AMG GLA45 4Matic—wear new front ends, and top off their cabins with new convenience and safety features. Its taut hatchback profile all but unchanged, the GLA gets a new front-end treatment with optional LED headlights and standard LED taillights. Small aero tweaks in front, in back, and underneath give it a smoother shape. The hot GLA45 wears new air intakes and a new front air dam, and standard LED headlights. Almost nothing changes in the cockpit. Power carries over, too. Base cars have a 208-hp 2.0-liter turbo-4 and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. The GLA45 AMG blasts out 375 hp from a retuned version of the same engine, to hugely entertaining effect. The GLA handles well, but it has a very firm ride that gets more brittle with the bigger optional tires. AWD models can tackle slick roads and even some gravel trails, and have an off-road transmission mode. Inside, the GLA’s bolstered front seats give great support, but the rear seats are skimpy on leg room. Head room is better, compared to the cramped CLA sedan. The rear seat folds down to create a big cargo hold. All GLAs have forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency braking. A surround-view camera is new to the options list. Frustratingly, neither the IIHS nor federal testers have crashed a GLA, despite being on sale for a few years. Also standard are power features, including a power tailgate; power front seats; a rearview camera; and 18-inch wheels. Options include an infotainment system and a panoramic sunroof. Prices start from $34,325 for a GLA 250; AWD GLA 250s start from $36,325, while the GLA45 carries a base price of $51,525. With the GLA, Mercedes' smallest utility vehicle has more hatchback panache than brute cues. The 2018 Mercedes GLA sits higher and sports a taller hatchback body than the related CLA sedan. It’s closer in proportion—but not in details—to the Infiniti QX30. It’s businesslike and a bit stubby in a way that works. The roof is short and it’s compact in size, but the GLA stuffs in exaggerated details where it can. They anchor its steeply angled roof pillars and its deeply sculpted body. Big 18-inch wheels push it off the ground, and a big three-pointed star takes up the middle third of its grille. This year, the GLA wears more pronounced front and rear bumpers, and LED taillights light up all models. LED headlights factor into AMG models; they’re an option on the GLA250. Other small tweaks smooth out airflow around the windows, mirrors, and hatch. The GLA45 adopts some of the same touches. It also adds more metallic front-end trim, and sits 3 inches lower than other versions despite its tall 19-inch wheels. The GLA’s cockpit carries over almost unchanged. The dash wears big circular vents and soft-touch plastics. The aero-inspired design still looks handsome, but some dash and door trim panels feel hard to the touch. The GLA’s dash-mounted display sits atop the dash, hotel-television style. Leather costs extra, as do finer trim pieces in carbon-fiber, wood, and aluminum.
ALL-NEW E-PACE Review THE ART OF PERFORMANCE “We are darers, performers and creators. Enemies to everydayers and play-it-safers. We are the heirs to greatness on road and track. We never settle for less than extraordinary; pride-welling, pulse-quickening moments when time stops and the world stares. Every Jaguar is a work of technical artistry; agile and sculptural, inspired and theatrical; a true performer that makes the road its stage. Born of our flair, ingenuity and instinct for seduction, our creations embody our passion for performance and express our reason for being. To excite in every sense. So let our drivers sit spellbound in their front-row seats; as our engines roar out their symphonic score. And let’s show the world that true performance isn’t just measured in figures, but in the way it makes you feel. These are the moments worth living for, because it’s not the number of breaths you take that matters, it’s the moments that take your breath away.” The E-PACE not only looks beautiful but is practical and connected too The Jaguar E-PACE is a seriously smart compact SUV. Designed and engineered to be beautiful, fun and clever, it will introduce new fans to the brand. Instantly recognisable as a Jaguar, its undeniable sporting silhouette shrouds an interior that’s been detailed to the tiniest degree, meaning the E-PACE not only looks beautiful but is practical and connected too. Everything Jaguar has created with its award-winning range of saloons and sports cars and, of course, its World Car of the Year F-PACE SUV, has benefitted the E-PACE. It’s a compact performance SUV featuring an all-wheel-drive system that is packed with technology designed to ensure the joy of driving a Jaguar whatever the conditions. Inside, the E-PACE ensures you remain connected wherever life takes you. Using the very latest hardware and software developed in Jaguar’s digital laboratories, it connects to your life and your devices, allowing seamless access to networks and data. In short it’s a perfectly 21st century car: connected, modern and practical, and utterly engaging to drive. It’s beautiful to look at, fun to get to know and possessing a soul and integrity that can only come from Jaguar. SPORTS CAR-INSPIRED DESIGN "Every Jaguar is a work of technical artistry; agile and sculptural, inspired and theatrical; a true performer that makes the road its stage." Just exactly what gives an object a certain edge can be hard to define. A stance? A swagger? A certain playfulness? Maybe something familiar, something in its silhouette, something hard to discern but which nonetheless stirs memories of a glorious bloodline? The answer is most likely all of the above, only bound together by a certain confidence. The E-PACE is the fourth, all-new Jaguar in as many years and the most potent expression yet of rediscovered Jaguar relevance in the 21st century. “Oh, it’s got an attitude to it all right!” says Design Director Ian Callum of the new E-PACE, the most playful car in Jaguar’s 81-year history, in many ways its most bold yet. “That’s exactly how I wanted it; a balance of masculinity and femininity; not too genteel and certainly sensuous; muscular and curvaceous at the same time. That perfect Jaguar balance.” E-PACE brings an uncommon sense of expressiveness to the compact SUV market. Put simply, it is a much more evolved design; simultaneously more clever and more beautiful than is typical in the segment. “It’s important especially in a smaller car that aspires to a sense of heritage, and a heritage of performance, that it should have that certain attitude,” says Callum. “In some ways the E-PACE is more like an F-TYPE than an F-PACE. Look at the haunches, front and rear, and the way the lines they make intersect, for example. Look at the profile of the roof in silhouette and the way it floats off the back. Look at the headlamps!” It is testament to the clarity of Jaguar’s contemporary design language that it so easily and effectively translates to a compact SUV.

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA Class may be the first foray for buyers looking for affordable luxury. The small crossover SUV has a three-pointed star up front, and badges in all the right places, but the small crossover doesn't share many similarities with more expensive Benzes on lots.
The GLA arrived in the 2015 model year, and for 2018 gets a light revamp. All models—the front-drive GLA250, the all-wheel-drive Mercedes GLA250 4Matic, and the run-and-gun Mercedes-AMG GLA45 4Matic—wear new front ends, and top off their cabins with new convenience and safety features.
We give the GLA a 6.2 out of 10. It earns great fuel economy, but it rides stiffly, though back-seat space is better than its CLA sedan cousin.
