If the standard GLA250 doesn't do it for you, perhaps the GLA45 is more your speed.

Power comes from a 2.0-liter I4, like the GLA250, but that's where the similarities end.

Here, output is a whopping 375 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque.

Thanks to all-wheel drive and a seven-speed transmission, the GLA45 rockets to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds.

The inside remains a positively sporty affair, with standard sport seats and plenty of AMG badging throughout.
