My first commuting days with the new GLA have given me some better-than-expected impressions that I thought I'd share.

My short test drives didn't give me a sense for how much I'd like these seats. They are so comfortable that my hour-long commute had me arriving at work more relaxed than I can ever remember. The plush lumbar support and the fire-from-the-hellgods seat warmer give an almost Jacuzzi-like experience. I never thought I'd find heated seats that can get hotter than I can handle but these can reach that level at times.

Another is the BlueTooth audio. This is my first car with this feature. When I got in the car to go home, my iPhone/Spotify started playing through the car speakers right where it had left off earlier in the day, without me doing anything. That was a really nice surprise!

(BlueTooth bonus tip: Just discovered in the manual that you can get back to BlueTooth audio from another source by repeatedly pressing the Disc button.)

These are just a couple of the pleasant items I wanted to share. Anyone else find aspects of their GLA that were better than expected?

Your comment on the Jacuzzi like experience with the heated seats was music to my wife's ears!

The exhaust sounds on the GLA45 when it changes gear... intoxicating!! :)

I love when I put it in sport mode, that it downshifts and revs high. Just love the sound out of it. Plus it's like a completely different car in sport mode vs. Eco. >:D I can still be aggressive in town, and put it in eco on the highway to capture that great gas mileage.
