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.”
From the Mercedes-Benz Facebook page (and everywhere else on the internet!): Presenting the all-new 2015 GLA45 AMG, the fourth high-performance SUV to arrive from our speed shop in Affalterbach. Under the hood is a handcrafted 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder putting down 355-hp and 332 lb-ft of torque through a high-performance 4MATIC all-wheel drive system. It’s an SUV that gets from 0-60 mph in a scant 4.8 seconds-and one that very few others should trifle with. On sale this fall.
