2021 Mercedes Benz Gla250 Driving

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA250 is enough for most drivers. It has enough power that is okay for the vehicle size and can reach a high speed with ease. The front-wheel-drive base GLA250 ran from 0 mph to 60 mph in 6.8 seconds during its performance testing, which is quite impressive for a small luxury SUV.

The engine and transmission are really smooth and although there would still be some engine vibration from the automatic engine stop-start system when it first comes up. The transmission can also be a little slow to engage when you step on the gas for a quick burst of speed. When making a turn, the 2021 GLA is stable and secure.

The height of the chairs and the sensibly sized doors make it easy for one to get in and out of the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA250 even when in traffic. There have been wide adjustment ranges in the driver’s seat which allows for a more upright or reclined position with no problem.

The primary controls are well-placed and easy to read. The secondary features are controlled with the infotainment screen and take little time to get familiar with. The cabin is surprisingly spacious and airy considering the sleek profile the GLA250 has. There is also plenty of adult-sized space in the rear. Visibility at the front as well as the sides and rear is clear, which helps with safety and parking.

The GLA250 has good comfort because the MB-Tex simulated leather breathes well on hot days, and the seats provide plenty of support and cushioning when going on long drives. Short and tall drivers will find the front seats quite nice thanks to the generous adjustments that have been made and extendable thigh supports. There are available Multi-contour seats with heating and ventilation as options. 

In terms of the infotainment systems, the GLA gets a high mark because of the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. There is also a Mercedes’ MBUX system which is one of the easiest systems to use and comes with multiple control methods such as touchscreen, trackpad, voice control and steering wheel thumb controllers. Voice commands are accurate but may sometimes take a moment to process. The only disappointing thing is that the GLA250 is pretty light on standard advanced safety features. Only frontal collision mitigation and a blind-spot monitor are included until you go for some costly option packages. 

2021 Mercedes Benz Gla250 Cargo Space

The cargo capacity behind the rear seats is 15.4 cubic feet which are about the size expected from a mid-size Sedan. It is good but when compared to its rivals, it is on the small side. The low liftover height makes loading heavy objects easier.

In the interior cabin, there are moderately sized bins and pockets for other smaller things. The cupholders have some nifty spring-loaded tabs to better hold smaller beverages or personal items. A rubberized tray does a good job of holding phones. It also serves as a wireless charging pad which is an optional feature.
