When you are in the market for a new SUV or crossover, it can be challenging to tell different models apart, especially when they are from the same automotive brand. Some brands, like Mercedes-Benz has a few vehicles that look very similar, but are in fact very different. Today we're going to help by outlining the distinct differences between the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA and 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC.
While both of these vehicles have seating for up to five, the Mercedes-Benz GLA is actually the smaller option in terms of cargo space. This GLA offers 17.2 cubic feet of space, while the GLC has 20.5 cubic feet of space. This might seem like a small difference, but it is one worth considering if you plan on hauling sports equipment or luggage regularly.
Another difference between these two vehicles is their performance and power. The Mercedes-Benz GLA comes standard with a seven-speed automatic transmission and is unable to tow anything. The Mercedes-Benz GLC, on the other hand, has a nine-speed automatic transmission and offers a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pound when properly equipped. This means if you want a little more power in a vehicle and you plan on towing extra cargo, you might want to take a closer look at the GLC.
