Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

While more expensive versions of the GLA will cost you serious money there are models that compare more favourably with the equivalent Audi Q3, BMW X2, Jaguar E-Pace and Volvo XC40 you may also be considering. Mercedes’ trim structure is baffling in name and complexity so the pricelist takes some navigating but, in short, a front-wheel drive petrol version is going to be your most affordable entry to the range, though you’ll need to spend more to get the toys you really want.

Though it’s among the more expensive models by its list price, the GLA250e plug-in hybrid looks more attractive in terms of running costs, especially for the huge savings in Benefit In Kind for company drivers. For those buying with their own money the petrol models are cheaper upfront while the diesels better on fuel so choose according to need and budget.
