The Mercedes GLA looks good – both inside and out – but rivals are better to drive and cheaper to buy and own.

Every GLA now comes with 'comfort off-road' suspension as standard (aside from the GLA 45, which gets a lowered AMG-specific suspension). Adaptive dampers that allow you to stiffen or soften the suspension are an option but only on AMG Line and GLA 45 models. Even with the adaptive dampers, the GLA rides bumps in much the same way as the previous GLA – which is to say, not particularly well. With the suspension in its most comfortable mode, the GLA feels too loose over crests and dips. It's better controlled in Sport mode, but then becomes very fidgety over rough surfaces. We’ve also tried a GLA with comfort off-road suspension and were left equally unimpressed. Urban ruts and bumps cause the GLA to shimmy uncomfortably, while even a smooth-looking motorway will have the car bobbling around. At least it doesn’t feel too baggy over humps and compressions. However, grip is good enough that you can swing the GLA through corners with confidence and you only need to go for four-wheel drive if you’re adamant you need all-weather peace of mind or extra towing capacity (four-wheel-drive models will tow 1800kg compared with the 1500kg that regular front-wheel drive models can manage). What does let the GLA down is its steering, which is unnervingly vague when you begin to turn in to corners. However, at least body lean is kept reasonably in check regardless of suspension type. Diesel buyers have a choice between two 2.1-litre engines (badged 200 d and 220 d respectively). The former has 134bhp and is our favourite, mostly thanks to its low running costs. It is a bit slower than equivalent rivals, but is flexible enough to satisfy most drivers. The 220 d is noticeably punchier and gets four-wheel drive and a seven-speed automatic gearbox as standard (so is a lot more expensive). Petrol options include a 1.6-litre or 2.0-litre engine, badged GLA 200 and GLA 250 respectively. The 200 unit gets a six-speed manual gearbox and front-wheel drive as standard. It can be specced with the automatic gearbox, although it’s the only engine not available with four-wheel drive. The engine delivers brisk enough performance, although you do have to rev it quite hard to get the best from it. The four-wheel-drive, automatic GLA 250 feels much more rapid, but isn’t as fun as you might hope given the hefty price. All of the engines are quite hushed at a steady cruise, but the diesels are rather vocal even under moderate acceleration. Road and wind noise are likely to be the more annoying aspect on a long journey, though; an Audi Q3 is much quieter. The GLA 45 AMG is a big step up from any other GLA. Its 0-62mph sprint of sub-5.0sec puts it in an exclusive club of super-fast small SUVs, with only the Audi RS Q3 a direct rival. It feels as explosively fast as the figure suggests, too, and its bespoke suspension and steering set-up means it handles with much more bravado and poise than the standard cars. It’s good fun, but it’s still tricky to justify given the eye-watering price.

The GLA's interior is much the same as a Mercedes A-Class's, which means you get an eye-catching dashboard with slick-feeling rotary-style air vents and a smattering of gloss and metal finishes. However, some of the plastics don’t feel as dense as you might hope, and there are sharper edges around the lower parts of the interior. Put simply, an Audi Q3 has an altogether more upmarket interior. It’s also a shame that you have to pay extra for adjustable lumbar support, but it's worth adding since the standard seats aren't great for your lower back. Offset pedals also make the driving position a little awkward. But at least the dashboard is easy to use, apart from the fact the air-con controls are hidden behind the gearlever. Visibility in the GLA isn’t as good as it is in boxier rivals like the Audi Q3 and BMW X1, either, which have broader rear windscreens and slimmer pillars. Still, while the GLA’s swooping lines can make it hard to judge the extremities in a tight spot, you do get a reversing camera as standard on all models. SE trim gets you a 7.0in colour display positioned high up on the dashboard, meaning you don’t need to divert your eyes far from the road to see it. Switching between the various on-screen functions is mostly straightforward thanks to the intuitive rotary dial positioned between the front seats. However, the three-layer menu system isn’t the most logical, so some processes take longer than they should. Even more annoying is the fact that DAB radio is a pricey option on all models apart from the range-topping GLA 45 AMG. At least Sport and AMG Line trims get a larger 8.0in screen, and dual-zone climate control that allows you to set specific temperatures for each front passegner, rather than just opting for hotter or cooler air. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring also come as standard on every GLA.

There’s plenty of space in the front of the GLA, so even the very lanky should be able to get comfortable. Things aren't so impressive in the back, though, where the GLA offers less knee room than most rivals. Anyone over six feet tall will probably find their knees pressed into the seats in front. It’s also worth mentioning that the optional panoramic glass roof eats into head room significantly. The GLA's boot is fairly broad by class standards, but is also shorter than that in an Audi Q3 or BMW X1. The boot opening is also quite narrow and has a high lip that you’ll have to lift things over. You can drop the GLA’s 60/40 split-folding rear seats to leave an extended boot space with a slightly sloping floor and there’s a ski hatch that lets you feed long items through the middle rear seat while leaving the outer rear seats free for passengers. An electrically powered bootlid is also a desirable standard feature across the range. That’s about it for flexibility, though; there’s no sliding or reclining rear seats, or even clever hidden storages in the boot, leaving the GLA lagging other small SUVs in the practicality stakes.

It’s a mixed bag for private buyers. List prices are quite high on the regular versions (let alone the eye-wateringly pricey GLA 45 AMG), but the GLA does hold its value better than the Audi Q3. Many buyers will opt for monthly finance payments, where Mercedes is traditionally much more competitive. Those low monthly payments do often come at the cost of a high final balloon payment, though, so the GLA will only appeal to those who plan on trading in for a new model at the end of the contract. Company car drivers will find the GLA surprisingly affordable (compared with its premium rivals, at least) when it comes to benefit-in-kind tax costs – particularly the 200 d – while leasing rates are broadly in line with the rest of the class. Equipment levels are good – better on the entry-level SE model than on most equivalent rivals. The list includes a 7.0in infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, alloy wheels, air-con and cruise control. The only options you really need are DAB and sat-nav although these are quite pricey. Safety equipment is fairly comprehensive, with seven airbags (including a driver’s knee airbag) and a system to alert the driver when the car senses they may be getting tired all standard across the range. Blindspot monitoring, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control and an automatic parking system are all options.
