Mercedes-Benz produces some of the highest-rated luxury SUVs on the market. Many people will be choosing between the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 and 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300. Let's take a closer look at how these two models compare.


Motivating the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 is a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Mercedes-Benz rates it to develop a competitive 208 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. With a 0-60 mph time of 7.2 seconds, the GLA is definitely quick enough to deliver an engaging performance. While the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC's engine is the same size, it's tuned to develop more power. Output increases to 255 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. This extra muscle enables the GLC to offer even more vigorous acceleration. You can also take advantage of the GLC's 3,500-pound towing capacity. Both of these SUVs offer an optional 4MATIC® AWD system.


When checking out these SUVs, you'll notice they both feature the signature three-pointed star emblem in the grille. However, there are also some critical differences in their exterior styling. A sleeker design gives 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA a more athletic appearance. Meanwhile, expect the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC to look more rugged. While LED headlights come standard on the GLC, they are optional on the GLA. Like the GLA, the GLC offers a sporty AMG® Line appearance package. It adds chiseled bodywork and larger 19-inch AMG® performance wheels. A blacked-out night package is available as well.


Regardless of which SUV you choose, look forward to enjoying a plush ride. Nonetheless, Mercedes-Benz designed the GLC to offer a bit more luxurious. It comes standard with a 10.25-inch touchscreen, which is larger than the GLA's 8.0-inch infotainment display. While heated front seats are standard on the GLC, they're optional on the GLA. Fortunately, both models benefit from standard automatic emergency braking and a drowsy driver warning system. However, blind-spot monitoring is also found on every new GLC.
