One of the best features of the Mercedes GLA is its smaller frame compared to other SUV’s in the past. Before, when you think of a sport utility vehicle (SUV), you immediately get the picture that it is bound to be hulking in frame. But over the years, Porsche, Audi and BMW have reinvented the way that SUVs should look like. Mercedes-Benz followed by introducing the GLK which instantly became a success by attracting new range of customers into its brand. Mercedes is looking to maintain its momentum by offering the GLA-Class.
