Compact crossovers don’t have to be boring. That’s why our friends at Mercedes-Benz demanded more from their A-Class SUV. Their solution was to add power, catchy lines, and incredible suspension. And that is why the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLA 35 is stylish and efficient.
A shear plate stiffens the suspension, and an 8-speed dual-clutch sends power to all wheels. A 2.0-liter engine is bolted to a twin-scroll turbo, to make 302 horsepower. The real treat is 295 lb-ft of torque between 2,000 and 4,000 rpm.
