From the moment it hit our lot, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLA250 has been a favourite among luxury car shoppers. This one-of-a-kind SUV features exceptional fuel efficiency, a high-tech cabin, and a variety of modern safety technologies. To show you why the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLA250 is a true standout, Mercedes-Benz Brampton has compared it to a similar model: the 2016 Lexus NX200.


Car shoppers who explore the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLA250 are often surprised to find out that this well-equipped SUV is available for an affordable starting MSRP of $32,500. If you decide to go with the 2016 Lexus NX200, you’ll have to dish out over $2,000 more, because the base NX200 starts at $34,965 MSRP. The GLA250 can save you a couple thousands while still providing you with a cutting-edge vehicle.

A Fuel-Efficient Powertrain

Both the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLA250 and 2016 Lexus NX200 come standard with a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder Direct Injection engine. However, the GLA250 offers greater fuel-efficiency than the NX200 with fuel economy numbers of 9.4 L/100km in the city and 6.7 L/100km on the highway, thanks in large part to its standard 7-speed automatic transmission. With its standard 6-speed automatic transmission, the NX200 trails behind with lesser fuel efficiency ratings of 10.7 L/100km in the city and 8.4 L/100km on the highway.

Modern Conveniences

Luxury SUVs are admired for their wide array of comfort features. Fortunately, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLA250 and 2016 Lexus NX200 are equipped with a generous amount of conveniences to ensure an enjoyable time on the road. On both models, you can expect a vehicle location system, emergency telematics, a leather steering wheel, a tilt-and-telescopic steering column, automatic climate control, and so much more. However, the new GLA250 comes with several features that are either optional or unavailable or on the NX200, including driver power lumbar support, an in-glass radio antenna, and an electronic trunk lid.

Reliable Safety

Both SUVs certainly do not skimp on safety. Every 2016 GLA250 and 2016 NX200 includes a number of airbags, keyless entry, an anti-theft alarm system, heated exterior mirrors, tire pressure monitoring, and front fog lights. Unlike the NX200, the GLA250 is also available with Xenon headlamps, remote trunk release, and front airbag deactivation via the child seat detection system. In addition, the following safety systems are exclusive to the Mercedes-Benz:

  • DISTRONIC PLUS®: This cruise control system makes following the flow of traffic as easy as possible by adapting your set speed to the vehicle ahead.
  • ATTENTION ASSIST®: Drowsiness during long road trips can be prevented and corrected, thanks to standard ATTENTION ASSIST®.
