The 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class represents the brand’s entry into the lucrative compact premium crossover segment and hopes to entice some buyers who might otherwise consider the Audi Q3, BMW X1, or new Lexus NX. The GLA has somewhat of a Jekyll-and-Hyde personality across the model spectrum, with the higher-riding and softer-sprung GLA250 on one end, and the 355hp GL45 AMG trading compliance and ground clearance for a ground-hugging suspension and an emphatically sporty personality at the other. With its lower ride height and boisterous boy-racer noise and appearance, the AMG model is realistically more of a premium-priced hot hatch than a crossover. There are better overall choices in this class, but for those buyers who consider Mercedes the pinnacle of status and only have a beer budget for their champagne tastes, the GLA is worth a look.
