The new 2.0-liter inline-4 turbo engine compliments this feeling of power and propels drivers forward, delivering an impressive 221 horsepower and up to 258 lb-ft of torque. DYNAMIC SELECT is standard on the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA but drivers can always opt for the available 4MATIC® all-wheel drive variant with an Off-Road Engineering Package for enhanced handling.


Despite its modest size, this compact SUV is far from limited. In fact, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA provides more space in the front, rear, and trunk than on previous Mercedes-Benz GLA models for sale to safely store all your gear as your zip around the Washington, D.C. area.
