2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 vs 2019 Mazda CX-3

Mercedes-Benz and Mazda don’t typically get compared to each other all that frequently, but with the rise of Mazda lately, we thought it would make for a fitting comparison. Drivers looking for extra space without the bulk of a larger SUV and better fuel efficiency will undoubtedly appreciate all that the subcompact SUV has to offer. Check out the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 vs 2019 Mazda CX-3!

The top trim level for the 2019 CX-3 has a lot to offer, but it’s the GLA 250 that comes out ahead with more horsepower and torque. For drivers seeking a sportier ride, there is hardly even a comparison here. With an extra transmission speed to go along with an adaptive variable suspension and automatic load leveling, the GLA 250 is still leaps and bounds ahead of Mazda’s subcompact SUV.
