The comparison table leaves no room for question – the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA provides superior value compared to the 2021 Audi Q3. This year the smallest Mercedes-Benz gets a little less so, as it gains a roomier interior with an extra 4.5 inches of rear-seat legroom and nearly an inch of additional front headroom. But perhaps the most exciting area of highlights is in the features. The Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) system drives a new generation of user-friendly tech with your own intelligent voice assistant. Just say “Hey, Mercedes.” A pair of 7-inch displays help keep you informed – one with digital gauges and one as a touchscreen – but you can swap them out for 10.25-inch if you feel so inclined.

At the core of the 2021 GLA is a 221-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that provides quick response with 258 lb-ft of torque at your command. Handing is exceptional with agile manners and crisp precision. The dual-clutch 8-speed plays the part of a smoother automatic or a paddle-shifted manual on demand.
