In rush hour, during a long drive at night or on an unfamiliar route – your GLA noticeably takes the strain out of driving, particularly in stressful situations. This is based on a concept that makes every journey in a Mercedes-Benz safe and unique: Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive. Because the time you spend behind the wheel is your time. Time for relaxation. Time to replenish your energy. So that, first and foremost, you reach your destination safely, but are also always relaxed when you get there.

Greater safety at night.

In addition to their distinctive visual appeal, the LED High Performance Headlamps boost night-time driving safety thanks to broad light distribution, a daylight-simulating colour temperature, and low energy consumption.

The LED bi-colour tail lamps give the car a striking external appearance and improve visibility.

Now you have everything in view.

Active Parking Assist makes it easier to find and choose a parking space as well as to enter and exit a parallel or end-on parking space or a garage.

The 360° Camera transmits a realistic image to the media display and consequently supports during parking and manoeuvring.

Too small of a gap between vehicles is one of the main causes of severe accidents.

The system gives the driver a visual warning if the distance to the vehicle in front is too small.

If the danger of a collision is detected, an acoustic warning signal is emitted; thereafter, the driver's braking action can be supported, and if the driver does not react, the vehicle speed can be autonomously reduced.

The PRE-SAFE® System.

The optional system is able to identify critical handling situations in advance and initiate preventive measures for occupant protection in the event of an impending accident.

These include reversible belt tensioning or the automatic closing of any open windows, for example.
