Saw a little question and answer piece on TFL that compared the GLA 250 to the Lexus CT Hybrid. I've quoted the question and answer below, and I also put a link to the original article as well.
Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 vs Lexus CT Hybrid, Volkswagen GTI Commuter and What about a French Car Revival? [Ask Nathan] | TFLCar.com: Automotive News, Views and ReviewsQ: Hey Nathan!
I’m not a huge car review fan, but I love the Fast Lane Car! I’ve watched you for two years and your videos make me happy in so many ways, LOL!
Here’s my question. Which car makes a better statement? I love the Lexus CT200, my dealer says it’s now known as the Lexus CT Hybrid. Recently, I caught a glimpse of the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 in my boyfriend’s condo’s parking lot. I love the way it looks. But which one is the best looking one for the burgeoning upwardly mobile?
If I’m careful, I can get either car for about thirty-five thousand, which is great. I need a hatchback because my mother is in a wheelchair and I own a big dog. I live in Las Vegas, so I do not need a four wheel drive crossover either.
What do you think Nathan? Which one makes the best statement?
Next time you and Roman hit Vegas, let me know! I have lots of friends who would love to meet you!
A: Wow, what a great email!
Both vehicles have strong points. If you need something that gets amazing mileage and makes a statement about you being environmentally sensitive, the Lexus CT Hybrid is the way to go. Otherwise, the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 is the right choice. It has more room for your mom’s wheelchair, it’s more exciting to drive, it is more contemporary and it makes a bold statement.
By the way, I recommend getting the rear cargo tray (I think it’s a $110 option) for your dog and mom’s wheelchair, it helps.
Best of luck and I’ll be sure to pass your kind invitation on to Roman!
