2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA vs. 2019 Jeep Gladiator

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA is the brand’s smallest crossover vehicle. This year’s model has received very few updates but there should be major changes in the next version since its brothers, the A-Class and CLA-Class have been revamped. Nonetheless, the GLA is a performance-oriented small car that offers both practicality and style.

Jeep is easily the most popular brand when you think about vehicles that can drive on rocky trails but still maintain a stylish aura. The 2019 Jeep Gladiator is an off-road vehicle but can easily blend well around town.

Design & Style

The GLA-Class is basically a sexy CLA that has a hatchback/wagon body shape. There are only minor design changes for this year, like new colors and a shuffling of the trim packages. It has a rakish nose and wide-set LED taillights.

The Gladiator looks very much alike with the Jeep Wrangler. The major difference is the pick-up bed that is attached at the rear. The rugged exterior is almost promising to be adventure-ready at all times. As for its cabin, there are new features such as new rear seats that come in either cloth or leather.

Technology & Safety

Every trim level of the GLA is fitted with advanced infotainment technology. The Mbrace Connect telematics services are included as a free trial for five years. There are also plenty of add-ons available like the satellite radio, voice-controlled navigation, and the high-end Harman Kardon audio system.

Even the tech features of the Gladiator follows the rugged theme. it can be fitted with a forward-facing off-road camera as well as portable wireless speakers.


The GLA has a performance-optimized engine that delivers up to 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The turbocharged engine provides sharp handling even on elevated grounds. It has nicely-weighted steering that is precise and linear. The steering also feels light and there is only a little tugging when driving.

While the GLA has more options for a powerful engine at up to 375 hp, the Gladiator comes in only one engine. It has a V6 3.6-liter engine for 285 hp. More than a powerful engine, the Gladiator can stabilize itself and slow down because of the longer design of its wheelbase.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Jeep Gladiator may be known for being a rugged vehicle but it lacks the finesse that the GLA has. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA has a generous set of features and looks premium because of its sleek design. It is a great choice if you are looking for a car that also has off-road specific functions apart from looking good on the road.
