The Mercedes GLA Automatics come with all three engine specs and in either trim. Mercedes automatic transmission makes for effortless family motoring inside this new luxury compact SUV whether on a 2-wheel drive platform or the more rugged 4x4.
The Mercedes 7-speed dual-clutch automatic system enjoys a well-earned reputation for split-second response and smooth changes at any speed. The automatic mode facilitates gliding trouble-free acceleration, whereas the steering wheel paddle enables the driver to intervene and switch gears at will, with their hands never leaving the wheel. Mercedes automatic transmission does not significantly impact on performance and economy either, with the GLA 200 CDI boasting 62.8mpg and the powerful GLA 250 petrol clocking 0-60 in 7 seconds.
Prices for the 2018 GLA Automatics start at £26,630 for the 2-wheel drive 200 SE CDI Auto. This economical 136PS diesel powered model is surprisingly well-equipped for an entry trim, featuring alloy wheels, privacy glass, collision avoidance and reversing camera. The cabin is comfortable and practical too, boasting mp3 connectivity, Bluetooth and USB port. The uniquely styled AMG Line trim with lowered suspension and sharper steering, adds £1000 to the GLA 200 price, but cuts a sportier profile both inside and out.
The two 2018 range-topping 4MATIC models are paired with 7-speed automatic transmission only and feature an all-terrain 4x4 train. The GLA 220 CDI houses a more muscular 170PS diesel engine and lists at £29.2K for the SE or £30.2K for the AMG Line trim. Slightly cheaper is the all-powerful GLA 250 4x4 with automatic transmission. This athletic petrol version may not be the cheapest to run but marries effortless family motoring with an exhilarating ride, especially when paired with the sporty AMG Line trim.
