The GLA Offers More of What You Want

The 2019 BMW X1 and 2019 Lexus NX are appealing options, but in the areas that matter most to shoppers, the 2019 GLA 250 wins out. Only the GLA offers a 14-way adjustable driver’s seat for optimal comfort. The GLA also comes with standard rain-sensing wipers and memory adjustable exterior mirrors, which are optional on the NX. Additionally, the GLA outshines competitors with its exclusive safety features. Unlike the NX and X1, the new GLA offers second-row side airbags and can deactivate the front airbag via a child seat detection system. What’s more, all of these additional features come at a lower price point when compared to competitors!
