In Focus: Mercedes-Benz GLA

  • Published: 30 June 2021

Currently the UK’s fastest-selling used car in the UK right now as confirmed by AutoTrader, the Mercedes-Benz GLA is taking the country by storm. 

Dominating the SUV market, it is the 2018 diesel automatic model in particular that has captured the attention of the nation. It’s a stylish luxury subcompact SUV that delivers on premium performance and incorporates a fantastic selection of high-tech features. 

Derived from the A-Class hatchback, it is the smallest SUV to be produced by the Mercedes-Benz brand. Originally introduced to the market in 2013, the GLA underwent a facelift four years later in 2017. The redesign incorporated an updated front grille, LED lights, plus the addition of a bold new colour in the form of Canyon Beige - as seen here at Avalon Motor Company.

Expect acceleration speeds of 0-60 miles-per-hour in just over 7-seconds and a top speed capped at 130 mph, unless you go for the AMG Dynamic Plus package which will boost that to a punchy 155mph.
