2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA in Lexington, KY

When shopping for a new vehicle, it can be hard to find the one that is right for you, especially when you're looking for a new SUV. Performance is important in an SUV, and the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA is one you'll want to look at if you're looking for performance. On the GLA 250, there is a standard 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, which can produce 208 horsepower. This engine is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Most SUVs are seen as bulky and sluggish, but the 2018 GLA with the 2.0L engine and seven-speed transmission can reach 60 mph in 7.2 seconds.

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA continues to buck the idea of what makes an SUV, thanks to its small size. While it is little, it provides plenty of space for passengers or cargo. If you're just carting around cargo, you'll have plenty of space. 43.6 cubic feet of cargo room is available with the rear seats folded, and with the rear seats up, you'll still have 17.2 cubic feet to store whatever you need to. Experience the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA at James Motor Company in Lexington, KY. 


Even with the 24/33 mpg city/highway, there is room for the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA to do more for the environment.  The ECO-START®/Stop system shuts off the engine automatically when the vehicle is idle, with the driver's foot on the brake. The engine restarts instantly when the brake is released, so there is no fumbling to turn the car back on when you need to go. The system reduces emissions and saves fuel while you're waiting at a traffic light or just waiting to go.


LED Headlamps

The 2018 GLA offers standard daytime running lamps, which helps keep you safe whenever you turn your vehicle on. The LED lamps have a long life and low energy consumption and increase your visibility no matter the time of day. The available LED headlamps and taillamps complete the modern look of the GLA while performing better than traditional headlamps. The LED lamps are brighter and cut through the night with a whiter light that closely mimics daylight.



For 2018, the exterior of the Mercedes-Benz GLA has been redesigned. The strong lines of the vehicle perfectly convey the powerful performance, while still providing a sleek and compact look the fits in with the city. The front fascia and rear have been revamped to exude a fresh and modern vibe. While the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA is small, it still is plenty spacious inside, and easy to maneuver through obstacles.
