Test drive a 2019 Mercedes-Benz in Scottsdale
Much like the starting MSRP*, you’ll find the 2019 GLA has the smallest amount of cargo space, though it still has a pretty spacious 43.3 cubic feet. The two more popular models, GLC and GLE, both have a roomier cabin. The GLC has 56.6 cu. ft. and the GLE has 80.3 cu. ft. The 2019 GLS, however, will give you a whopping 93.8 cu. ft. So, if you are looking for something on the smaller side you may want to go with the GLA or GLC, but if you are looking for a larger SUV then the GLE or GLS might interest you more.
You have the option of choosing a coupe body style on the GLC and GLE, so if you are looking for the sweepingly stylish exterior of the coupe, then you’ll want to go with one of those models.
