Anybody of you measured how noisy is GLA?
I have impression mine is quite noisy. More noisy than my second car - Nissan Quashqai (Rogue).
I used noise meter today. I checked on highway.
90kmh (56mph)- 66dB
130kmh (80mph)- 70dB
My 2017 45 is quieter than my Porsche 997 but not as quiet as my F250.
But it did get quieter when I installed the Michelin MP4S tires (vs the 20" Contis).
Tires can make a big difference.
But there is wind and mechanical noise as well.
A couple years ago there were some posts about adding sound deadening material inside the doors and elsewhere. This was a part of adding high end audio systems.
This is an A (not E) Class vehicle ... Something to be remembered.
