Our favorite signature subcompact SUV is back and this year the redesigned 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA rounds out the brand's compact car roster with a host of excellent new features and enhancements that our Kansas City Clients will enjoy. The first thing you’ll notice is that the new GLA is larger than its predecessor, and the added length serves for function as well as vanity, promising more headroom and rear seat legroom. The cargo area is now 3.9 inches longer, opening up a cargo volume of up to 15.4 cubic feet.

This year the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA gets a new but familiar powerplant, trading up to the same engine as the GLB, which cranks out 221 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Looking for a bit more oomph? The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA AMG® model also gets a new 2.0-Liter Inline-4 turbocharged engine, with this one doling out 302 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. The transmission has also been traded up from a seven-speed automatic to an eight-speed automatic this year. All 4MATIC® variants of the Mercedes-Benz GLA will now offer the Off-Road Engineering Package as standard.
Perhaps one of the most exciting updates for this year is the highly-anticipated addition of the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) system. The new feature allows drivers to voice commands, which the intuitive MBUX system will answer or perform on demand. Other interior feature highlights new owners can look forward to include the dual 10.25-inch display screens, the windshield-projected Head-Up Display, genuine wood accents, interior ambient lighting and so much more.
