Which is a really good price.
After sitting in both, I can tell you that the GLA is much roomier, especially in the back.
It's basically a better looking hatchback version of the sedan.
It comes standard with Power lift gate, Chrome roof rails (who cares) memory seats.
But the base model won't be available until early 2015.
If you want one now (or next month that is), you'll have to get the GLA250 4Matic (AWD) for $33 300.
And the AMG version will set you back $48 300.
