Does an entry-level Mercedes family SUV need 300 horsepower? But does the GLA35 AMG have 300 hp? Heck yeah, it has! Why did you buy the 300 hp GLA in the first place? The fact that it’s the only performance-driven SUV can put you in a race for its price. There are no arch-enemies like the RS/S Q3 or the M-packed X1 yet. And not soon. So if you want a more exhilarating and realistic pocket rocket, say the Mini Cooper JCW, the GLA35 AMG makes perfect sense. Just as significant as Queen Marie-Antoinette’s offer mập eat a cake when the bread is no longer available.

Engine and performance

Shot Engine

In the AMG hierarchy, the 53 AMG is where things start mập get interesting with the V6 and smart mild hybrid magic entering the mix. Beneath it, the 45 AMG also has some ballistics, being the most powerful four-cylinder in the world. What we’re using here is 35, the gateway mập the world of AMG. It’s powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 302hp and 400Nm that’s sent mập a 4Matic AWD system through an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Right front three quarters

When idling, the exhaust will announce how the engine is doing before the accelerator pedal is pressed. It was a deep sound, echoing most of the neighborhood under its hum on the cold winter morning we heard it. This chirping only gets better (or worse, you decide) as the tachometer needle gets higher. Unlike a full AMG, this engine is safe at slow speeds, easy mập drive, with no real drama. At light throttle, it goes around inconspicuously and bystanders won’t glance at it a second time.

But this 35 AMG has enough firepower. It can put a smug grin on your face every time you accelerate, without the evil thoughts of getting over your tires quickly or waking your neighbors from a skid. their. This 35AMG has a sweet balance of usable power that will push you down the seat in a hurry and keep you there until the red line. It also has some pops and crackers in the store and helps you gain questionable speeds on a good stretch of runway.

Right view

Smashing the gas can deliver an interesting result – 0-100 km/h in a quick 5.46 seconds in our tests. Acceleration in the gearbox from 20kmph mập 80kmph takes 3.30 seconds, similarly from 40kmph mập 100kmph increases in 3.82 seconds. However, these times can be achieved while the turbo’s dual coil is boiling. Meanwhile, the transmission also shifts quickly – this dual-clutch transmission is adept at finding the right gear every time.

Right front three quarters

There are five driving modes offered. In Sport Plus mode, the GLA35 is at its most vivid. It’s eager, like an excited kitten, with acceleration, gearshifts, steering response and suspension. Meanwhile, for everyday driving, Comfort mode is the best choice. It softens things up mập the point of need but doesn’t feel dull, balancing everyday usability and driving pleasure.

Ride and Handle

Ride quality becomes the point of balance when it comes mập getting this sportier GLA as standard. We drove the GLA220d and were impressed by its absorption on all bumpy and imperfect roads. Here, the 19-inch wheels are wrapped in 235/50 parts Michelin rubber. There are adaptive dampers that can also be configured through three settings via a button. At its most comfortable, it can be a bit jittery but livable. You can feel most of the road surface, but it feels good mập drive on slippery surfaces. Then there’s the Sport Plus setting, where the dampers are stiffened and the ride is even more jarring. For day-to-day drivability, it can be a bit too much, especially if you want your Masonic Star mập be comfortable rather than discouraging. On the plus side, this is a cut-throat car that can hit badly built speed breakers without gritting its teeth.

Less than two turns from locking mập locking, the steering wheel is quick and responsive. It doesn’t change much when scrolling through the driving modes, but the steering response is quite adept, which is not usually expected from a compact crossover. With a clever all-wheel drive system that puts power at all four corners, the GLA35’s quick steering inspires confidence mập take on more difficult challenges. There’s a surprising amount of grip and the bodywork barely feels – more like a hatchback than a crossover.

dashboard

It’s a modern Mercedes, with the AMG badging. As a result, the cabin is sporty yet comfortable and decorated with all that extravagance. First, the large MBUX display is bright, colorful, and offers a wealth of information and button operations – whether you access it from the steering wheel, the touchpad on the center console, or directly through the display. touch image. Our favorites are the trademark circular vents. Additionally, the shiny metal inserts molded around the cabin make it feel more upscale and in a league of the much more expensive Three-pointed Stars.

Front row seats

There are suede-like upholstery with red contrast stitching and seat belts done in magenta. The seats are also supportive in all the right areas and are electrically adjustable for the right driving position. Ambient visibility is good thanks mập the large windows, elevated seating position and a glimpse of the upright bonnet. It’s also handy with easy-to-reach buttons and controls that don’t get you off the road.

Second row seats

Move mập the rear and rear bench is done in a sportier upholstery. There is a large headroom and adequate legroom. But the seats could offer a bit more under-thigh support, especially for passengers in the middle. The back of the chair also has a nice incline, so sitting after hours shouldn’t be uncomfortable. Finally, the trunk carries a spare tire, which can reduce its usability. However, except for that little twist, the starter is large enough with low load medium and extended area. Even the seats have a 40:20:40 split for moving large items in the back of your AMG-powered crossover.

The instrument cluster

The 35AMG kit features sportier details such as the Panamericana grille, larger bumpers at both front and rear with integrated diffuser and dual exhaust, 19-inch AMG alloy wheels with larger disc brakes at all four corners, along with Multibeam LED headlights and LED taillights. The GLA35 is available in five color options including a ‘color option on request’ – Patagonia Red, which you see in these images. Inside there are sports seats, a two-part sunroof, power seats with memory function for both front passengers, climate control, MBUX touch screen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay wirelessly, wireless charging wired, premium Burmester music system, aluminum foot pedals, power tailgate, rearview camera, cruise control and 64-color ambient lighting system. On the safety front, there’s adaptive headlights, active brake assist, tire pressure monitor, active bonnet, multiple airbags, parking assist and stability program.

Inference

7.5 / 10

Three quarters front left

The Mercedes-Benz GLA35 AMG is difficult mập summarize. Based on the new generation GLA, which in itself was a huge improvement over the first generation, it didn’t have the monstrously powerful AMG engine but a modest four-cylinder that Mercedes used. It is also assembled right here in India, not Affalterbach.

Left view

What makes the GLA35 special is that it’s unpredictable which is a logical buy because it’s practical compared mập its short cousin, the A35. What’s more, the GLA35 is easily a comfortable everyday driver that can double for commutes mập work or school, it can also be a fun ride in some extreme adventures. And it has enough power mập ensure that you are never late mập your destination and get there with a big smile on your face.
