Fuel-Saving Features With the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA

Efficiency of the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLAWhile the 2021 GLA comes with an impressive fuel efficiency, this SUV comes standard with two features that work hard to help ensure you’re getting the most out of this efficiency: ECO-START®/Stop and DYNAMIC SELECT.

  • ECO-START®/Stop: This feature works to reduce idle time that leads to poor fuel efficiency. It does so by automatically turning off the engine at stoplights, in traffic, and other times you idle. Once you take your foot off the brake, the system automatically re-engages the engine. This way, you’re maximizing your fuel efficiency while also enjoying seamless travels.
  • DYNAMIC SELECT: This feature lets you choose how you want to drive by selecting one of four pre-programed driving modes: ECO, Comfort, Individual, and Sport. ECO mode adjusts how your SUV performs by tweaking things like throttle response to help get the most out of your SUV’s efficiency.
