A lot of people have been saying the GLA45 is a 'mature,' luxury take on the Subaru STi and Lancer EVO market.

I can see that to an extent... When I think of it that way, it makes it more appealing to me.

My issue with the GLA45 is, I'd have to swap the suspension from a GLA250 onto it in order to enjoy the SUV-like benefits (clearance) that I currently have in my own GLA250.

And I may be in a minority here, but I do not find the AMG bodykit or 'sport' kit attractive AT ALL. It looks like an after-thought because it doesn't match the ride-height in EITHER variant. Truly looks like a LIFTED CAR. The standard bumper is scooped away for clearance, making it appear 'necessary' to have increased height. The sport kits give it the 'scared cat' appearance many reviewers have commented on.

Just the way my brain processes it, so please don't take offense if you like it, I completely understand beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I'm not quite getting "scared cat" from the AMG body kit. YOu think it looks like that simply because of the lower ground clearance?

it's not just it's stance and ride height but the aero kit as well.... it's AMG styling as a whole and how the whole package has been executed.
