If I have to drive a car from Mercedes-Benz as the class E, would be able to release the steering wheel, too. However, entry-level, compact SUV, GLA250 might not be later the traffic jam Assistant is higher in the lineup of models. As a compact SUV, the GLA250 offers seating for five, the high position of the driver and sufficient load 42 cubic feet with the rear seats down. And more practicality, I like the look of things. The curve of the campaign until the grill two bars and roof rails are an elegant line, stretching the column and then down in the back. Backend leans forward, which can be packed into cargo space, but gives the appearance of the car.
Price based on United States for 2015 GLA250 came to $33.300, becoming one of Mercedes-Benz models are less expensive. The model includes the Mercedes-Benz all-wheel-drive 4MATIC system. The same model starts at £29.480 in United Kingdom and AU $58.600 in Australia.

This type of transmission does not end with the help of torque converter turns neglected the two computer-controlled clutches to change quickly and spurs. GLA250 transmission includes three modes: Eco, sport and Manual. Eco achieves higher for the teeth, leaving that the machine works more slowly, while sporting has low teeth again, especially in response to aggressive driving. When you really want to get aggressive, paddle on the steering wheel let me choose my computer manually.

Although I like the character of public GLA250 and enjoy automatic transmission Sport of aggressive driving mode, the suspension not the comfort expected of a premium car. Every time the road was hard to feel severe shaking in the cabin accompanied by rare toys. I found a similar journey of poor quality in Mercedes-Benz CLA250, it suggests to me that Mercedes-Benz has not perfected yet by the suspension of small cars. Small cars of BMW and Audi are more restricted seteguh tours. The adaptive cruise control system, he was selected to the car as part of a package of drivers, does wonders in heavy traffic. The only time to touch the pedal is when the traffic started to move after coming to a complete stop. Quick stab with car gas pedal up again.

We never encountered in Germany described the interior as “spartaneous.” While our test car had the optional upgrade with luxurious interiors, top-stitched leather pad brown trail, spartaneousness-minted but not too neat is the word Benz seat cover shines, as is the case of the brothers GLA platform. (Even information systems and branded entertainment COMAND, optional on GLA250, is not as intuitive as Audi MMI or BMW iDrive, and the design of user interface continues to resemble a draft junior college design.)
