The 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG will arrive later this year and Mercedes-Benz invited journalists for a test drive this week. Here’s the first impression.
“In many ways, the AMG is a more pleasant everyday driver than the CLA45 AMG. The GLA delivers the same rousing performance, but offers a more comfortable ride, better for daily commuting.”
“…the transverse four-cylinder is most impressive from 4,500 rpm and up, where its character hardens and delivers explosive qualities on a planted throttle. It also sounds fantastic: a raspy growl under load and the occasional exhaust crackle.”
“We tried it on some rocky terrain and it happily traverses trails and loose gravel roads without feeling overly fragile or vulnerable. Whether you like it for its looks or its capabilities, the GLA fitted with the off-road package is uniquely appealing.”
“It adds more cargo space, a higher seating position for better visibility and even some rough road ability if you need it. Not bad considering it has the same footprint, similar styling and should likely deliver equivalent mileage numbers.”

Mercedes-Benz makes a lot of vehicles that don’t come to the US. Trucks, busses, tiny hatchbacks and a couple of vans. Now that Sprinter is in the US and doing well there may be more vans on the way!
Here is an intro to the V-Class that is arriving in Europe this spring. Car and Driver online
Will it come to the US? I hope so! I love the M-Class and the GL-Class but they just don’t work for families with lots of car seats or a big carpool to run. This would certainly fill a niche!
