When the performance is so even, how else do you measure two top models against each other? Consider the extras that come with each. In the GLA 250, for example, it comes standard with DISTRONIC PLUS. This feature works by monitoring the speed of the vehicle in front of you and then adjusting the speed of your GLA 250 accordingly. Stuck behind a driver moving at an inconsistent speed? Sit back and simply steer while your crossover slows down and speeds up to keep you at a safe distance while also providing incredible convenience. The 2018 QX30 does not come with this feature.
