Mercedes-AMG GLA

Mercedes-AMG® GLA 35

Even though the GLA is the entry-level Mercedes-Benz SUV, you’d be wise not to underestimate it, especially the GLA AMG® 35. An AMG®-enhanced two-liter four-cylinder turbo engine allows its horsepower to climb up to 302 hp and its 0-60 time to drop to a mere 5.2 seconds. How many entry-level SUVs can claim that? The answer: the GLA.

Other trim highlights:

  • AMG® Performance front seats
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • 64-color LED ambient lighting with illuminated vents

Test drive a Mercedes-AMG® GLA 35 in Chicago at Mercedes-Benz of Orland Park to experience how much power it packs in its subcompact body.

Mercedes-AMG GLB 35

Mercedes-AMG® GLB 35

Like the AMG®-iteration of the GLA, the AMG® GLB 35 also draws its power from an AMG®-enhanced two-liter turbo engine, which means they have almost similar performance specifications. One thing that gives the GLB an edge, though, is that it offers more space. For the first time in a Mercedes-Benz compact SUV, the 2022 GLB is now available with a third-row option that can comfortably seat up to seven occupants. Combine this with a maximum cargo capacity of up to 62 ft³, and you’ll get a compact SUV that provides unrivaled versatility and performance.

Other trim highlights:

  • Remote Start via Mercedes me Mobile App
  • SmartKey with KEYLESS-START
  • Heated power side mirrors

Mercedes-AMG GLC 43

Mercedes-AMG® GLC 43 SUV

The GLC probably needs no introduction. It set standards for comfort, convenience, and safety, and now with the AMG® GLC 43 SUV, it’s raising the bar for performance as well. A three-liter V6 biturbo engine is powerful in and of itself, but imagine how much more it could be when it’s AMG®-enhanced. Luckily, you don’t have to stretch your imagination too far thanks to the AMG® GLC 43 SUV; its 385 hp and 4.7-second 0-60 mph are testaments enough to the Mercedes-AMG® tradition of leading the pack. Add in AMG® Performance 4MATIC® AWD, and the world becomes your AMG® GLC 43 SUV’s oyster.

Other trim highlights:

  • Power liftgate with HANDS-FREE ACCESS
  • Garage door opener via HomeLink®

Mercedes-AMG GLE 53

Mercedes-AMG® GLE 53 SUV

What sets the AMG® GLE 53 SUV apart from its predecessors in this list is that in addition to an ultra-powerful engine (an AMG®-enhanced three-liter six-cylinder turbo, in this case), it’s also fitted with an efficient integrated starter-generator or ISG. The AMG® GLE 53 SUV’s engine alone can generate an outstanding 429 hp, but when it’s supported with an ISG, you get an additional boost of up to 21 hp for short periods. How’s that for a performance boost? The ISG also supplies your battery with power through energy regeneration, allowing you to save up on fuel costs and effectively making your AMG® GLE 53 SUV a mild hybrid.

Other trim highlights:

  • 12.3″ touchscreen multimedia display and digital instrument cluster display
  • Burmester Surround Sound System
  • Inductive wireless charging with NFC pairing
