How Powerful is the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA? 

One of the most popular Mercedes-Benz vehicles, the GLA is more than just a pretty face. When looking beyond its stylish design and luxury features, drivers will come to find an exciting, powerful and efficient ride. While there is so much to talk about regarding the new GLA SUV, just how powerful is the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA? 

Mercedes-Benz made two different trims for the GLA available for 2018. These include the standard 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 SUV, as well as the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 4MATIC®* SUV.  Both of these vehicles come equipped with the 2.0-liter turbo inline-4 engine. This engine is able to power the GLA models with 208 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The GLA 250 SUV and GLA 250 4MATIC®* SUV also can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 7.2 and 7.1 seconds respectively.
