The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA-250 is a peppy, fun little sport utility vehicle that allows you to get into the Mercedes line for less than $40,000. Redesigned completely for 2021, the GLA-250 (base price: $36,230) looks like a cross between a small SUV such as a Toyota RAV4 and a small sedan such as a Honda Civic, only souped up with lots of Mercedes luxury and performance. I recently tested a GLA-250 4Matic, a midlevel trim line with all-wheel drive and a $38,230 base price.
