Mercedes-Benz GLA 45

This car transforms a practical SUV into a head-turning crossover vehicle that could easily lure younger buyers. Despite having a smaller, four-cylinder engine, it accelerates from zero to 60 miles per hour in 4.8 seconds and has 355 horsepower. The car has a sportier feel, with brawny bumpers and a twin-blade radiator grill.
