GLA vs GLB: Which is Better?
Mercedes-Benz offers so many amazing models, with something in the lineup for everyone. However, knowing which model is perfect for you can be difficult. Today we’re comparing two of the brand’s most popular models—the GLA and GLB—to give you a better idea of which model would best fit your lifestyle. We’re going to take an in-depth look at the features car buyers care about most to help you decide.
Fuel Economy and Price
Fuel efficiency and price are the biggest factors for many car buyers. Because it's smaller, the GLA takes both of these categories, but not by much. With a combined mpg of 28* and a starting MSRP of $41,435**, the Mercedes-Benz GLA is the best choice for drivers who prioritize cost and fuel consumption. The GLB starts at $45,365** and has a combined mpg of 26*, which is still admirable when you consider everything this SUV offers.
Size and Comfort
For seating, both the GLA and GLB seat five. Both offer ample passenger space, but the GLB does edge out the GLA in this category. However, size can be a bit subjective. If you need that extra room and comfort, the GLB is the winner, but the GLB will be a star on city streets and busy parking lots.
Power and Capability
Mercedes-Benz is leading the luxury segment in performance and both these models offer it in spades. Both models are available with Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC all-wheel drive and AMG variants for a premium performance experience.
It's hard to choose based on specs alone. We recommend taking a firsthand look at any model you are considering before you make a final decision. The Mercedes-Benz of Owings Mills team is here to make buying the right vehicle for you as easy as possible.
