Serving Milwaukee, WI

The GLA 250 is a popular crossover from Mercedes-Benz that leaves a lasting impression with its small, elegant stature. This subcompact luxury crossover SUV passed into its second generation for the 2021 model year. Both the 2020 and the 2021 versions are loaded with appeal, but they are stunningly different because of the generational updates. Which of these GLA 250 model years is best for you?


For both model years, the GLA 250 is powered by a 2.0-liter turbo gas engine. However, this engine has been tweaked for the latest model year. It generates 221 horsepower and is connected to a dual-clutch eight-speed auto transmission. For both model years, the GLA 250 has front-wheel drive, electromechanical power steering, a multi-link rear suspension, and an independent front MacPherson strut.


The GLA 250’s exterior has been beautifully overhauled for the next-generation version. Both model years have a recognizable Mercedes-Benz grille and gorgeous LED headlights. The front style has been revamped to create a more contemporary look in 2021. Also, the 2021 GLA 250 is taller. This elevated position enhances the driver’s experience and changes the exterior façade. You can find premium wheels, a power moonroof, a powered liftgate, and other exciting features that elevate the crossover’s style and capabilities in remarkable ways.


The 2020 GLA 250 is well-equipped by any standards, and it has coveted features throughout the cabin. For 2021, the GLA 250’s cabin is more extensive, and some of the styling and features have been updated. The new GLA 250 displays two connecting screens across a large portion of the dashboard. These screens hold controls for the navigation system, the MBUX system, the instrumentation gauges, the sound system, and more.
