The 2014 Mercedes GLA was all the rage last year because it was going to go head-to-head with some of the best CUVs on the market. This vehicle may be classed as a crossover in the US, but in India it is known as the compact SUV. We have seen many vehicles like this in the past, like the Range Rover Evoque, that looks too squashed, but the GLA looks rather stylish.
A popular auto website in India has spent some time with the Mercedes-Benz GLA to give it a proper review, and they do have one concern, and that is the 2014 Mercedes GLA price in India, as it is expected to be Rs 30 lakh. This is rather expensive for such a vehicle, but the website does point out that the luxury German carmaker has never been one for aggressive pricing.
Mercedes took a different approach with the GLA because they have left behind the harsh and masculine looks of its other SUVs, the ML and GL and have given it gentler styling thanks to its gracious curves.
The review looks at the many options available to you in India, such as engine types, and Mercedes GLA models. They also point out that the GLA seems to be one of the safest vehicles in its class thanks to an abundance of driver aids, along with seven airbags as standard.
To get a better idea of how the GLA will be welcomed in India, we ask that you watch the video review embedded below.
