New Mercedes-Benz GLA in Durham

The Mercedes-Benz GLA SUV in Charlotte Has a Big Personality That May Surprise You

Regardless of how you define it, there's no doubt in the minds of Durham drivers that the Mercedes-Benz GLA is a versatile, stylish, urban-agile luxury vehicle that crosses effortlessly between the lines of athletic hatchback and capable SUV. Not quite rugged utility vehicle, not quite low-riding five-door, it's the perfect match for drivers in Raleigh and Chapel Hill who want the versatility of a crossover, but the elegance and comforts of a small Mercedes-Benz.

There are three exceptional model options to choose from in the Morrisville and Hillsborough areas: the base Mercedes-Benz GLA 250, the all-road-capable Mercedes-Benz GLA 4MATIC, and a high-performance Mercedes-AMG GLA 45.

A Smart, Spacious Interior

As with any Mercedes-Benz, the interior of the Mercedes-Benz GLA has received particularly careful attention, with every detail coming together to deliver uncompromising comfort, steady support, intuitive ease of use, and the ultimate in luxury. Passenger volume has been optimized for both legroom and headroom so, even with its small size, you can ride in comfort on even the longest trips. And, of course, the interior of the Mercedes-Benz GLA has been fully-equipped with the latest of Mercedes-Benz standard and available technology and features, including an eight-inch color display screen, multiple connectivity options, and a cabin decked in premium materials.

Small Style Packs a Big Punch

With custom-compact styling, the newly-redesigned Mercedes-Benz GLA is as flexible and fun as it is striking and sleek. It's a standout option in Durham that catches eyes on the road--but doesn't take up more than its fair share of the lane like some other, larger crossovers do. Its unique balance of strength and modest sizing make it as well-suited for tight city streets as for lonely back roads. New styling at the front and rear improve muscling and tight character lines--and with wheels up to 20 inches, this elegant SUV can be surprisingly aggressive.

Athleticism is Art

There are two engine--and three drivetrain--options for the Mercedes-Benz GLA, including a 2.0-liter AMG turbo engine and an AMG-specific AWD system. The standard powertrain for this SUV, however, is as practical as it is potent: a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, paired to a sleek-shifting seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Rear-wheel drive comes standard, but 4MATIC All-Wheel Drive is available.

For the boldest souls in Raleigh, this packed powerhouse of a crossover is also available with AMG performance modifications. As with other high-power models from the brand, the Mercedes-AMG GLA 45 SUV features custom equipment and technology specifically designed for these robust vehicles: a handcrafted AMG 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, AMG DYNAMIC SELECT driving modes, and AMG Performance 4MATIC All-Wheel Drive. If you've been looking for one-of-a-kind athleticism in Chapel Hill, this is likely the right fit for you.

The surprises continue--standing at a low height, the sleek and windswept look of the Mercedes-Benz GLA hides a versatile interior for cargo, with up to 43.6 cubic feet of storage area with the rear seats folded. Drive with all five seats in use, and the Mercedes-Benz CLA can still offer a cargo area that's plenty large enough for a few bags, a suitcase, or your daily gear. Hillsborough drivers looking for true capability can equip their Mercedes-Benz GLA with 4MATIC All-Wheel Drive, and a special "off-road" package can boost ground clearance to eight inches.
