Why The Mercedes-Benz GLA Class Makes A Great Family Car
Having been on sale for nearly a decade now, the Mercedes GLA has become an increasingly popular compact-SUV. What’s more, the luxury off-roader is an incredibly reliable, safe and comfortable choice for a family.
We’ve come up with some clear reasons as to why the GLA Class is ready to look after your precious cargo - getting your family where you need to be, in luxury, comfort and of course, style.
The Mercedes GLA’s design is definitely something to be envied on the school-run. The large Mercedes badge anchors it’s sporty, off-roader stance, whilst sleek LED headlights and smooth lines feel comforting to climb into after a busy day.
The Mercedes-Benz GLA class was designed to look after you and your family, and here’s why:
It’s 5-Star Safety Rating
With a slightly larger presence on the road, the luxury compact SUV GLA comes with a host of amazing features to keep you and your passengers as safe as possible.
The Euro NCAP is an independent organisation to judge a car’s safety, producing yearly reports on all the latest models. Having reviewed the GLA, Euro NCAP declared the small off-roader to have a 5-star safety rating with just its standard features intact.
As well as the usual safety mod-cons of a new car, including ISOFIX fittings for the really little ones, the GLA comes with Speed Assistance and Lane Assistance Systems as standard.
The Mercedes GLA will automatically keep a look out for, and avoid if possible, potential dangers on the road. This definitely gives a driver peace of mind when they’re carrying precious cargo.
The Mercedes GLA’s bold appearance and confident SUV stance means you’ll love it on your driveway, and importantly, there’s loads of space for a growing family too.
The large windows and electronic height-adjustable seat give good visibility over traffic, while it’s a smaller SUV-style still fits in an urban landscape. All this makes it very easy to drive around town, dashing effortlessly from school, to clubs, to home – all before bedtime!
It’s additionally easy to pack the GLA with plenty of passengers – and everyone’s luggage too. Parents won’t have to worry about lugging changing bags, PE kits, school projects, instruments or a buggy, as the Mercedes GLA Class comes with room for it all.
It Has All The Advanced Technology You Could Need
The GLA Class comes with Mercedes’ infamous state-of-the-art infotainment system, so that every passenger is entertained and impressed. The GLA’s centralised Touch Pro Duo infotainment system makes it easy to navigate and use all the cutting-edge technology available.
An intelligent navigation system optimises your drive time, whilst 4G Wi-Fi capability and the Mercedes GLA’s host of connectivity features, including Mercedes Me CONNECT, mean it’s easy to keep in touch with anyone, anywhere – especially handy if you need to call home for back-up!
Avoid the ‘are we there yet?’ chorus with a live ETA on the Sat-Nav, which equally finds the best route possible. Apple CarPlay and Android Connectivity means that no one will be short on tunes for a carpool karaoke either.
In addition, optional rear heated seats promise that every passenger can be comfortable.
Prices for the all-new Mercedes GLA start from £24,706 for the 180 Urban Edition 5dr model.
The Mercedes-Benz is great value for money, considering the SUV provides such high levels of comfort and luxury, combined with cutting-edge technology and great performance.
It becomes incredibly hard to fault the newest Mercedes GLA – it’s a clear choice for families looking for a car that suits everyone’s needs.
