2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA Engine and Performance Features
Performance features are essential for an SUV to be successful. After all, technology and interior features can only get you so far before you start noticing how good or bad the engine is. Put those worries aside, because the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA offers drivers the power they’re looking for with none of the nonsense some others might install under the hood.

What Kind of Power Does the GLA Have?
You’ll find no shortage of power in the 2017 GLA. The engine pumps out an awesome 208 horsepower with 258 ft-lb of torque. You might find that to be the perfect amount, because while it delivers plenty of power to pull you through the toughest road conditions and situations, it isn’t too high to where you’re sacrificing fuel economy. This is all made possible due to the 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. Additionally, the 7G-DCT transmission gives drivers the fastest shift possible while allowing you to take control whenever you want with shift paddles.
What other features in the GLA make it exceptional? The available 4MATIC all-wheel drive is there to give you even more traction and control. Rather than evenly distributing torque among wheels, 4MATIC detects which wheels need it the most. As the saying goes, we’re only as strong as our weakest team member. Well, the GLA just so happens to make that weakest member stronger. Add in four different DYNAMIC Select driving modes (normal, sport, eco, and a customization mode) and it’s pretty easy to see why the GLA might be the best SUV for you.
It’s not an easy task blending the right amount of power with comfort and driver control, but Mercedes-Benz did it with the 2017 GLA. See for yourself what else makes this SUV shine and give us a call or set up a test drive right away!
