The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.4
6.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Mercedes-Benz GLA merges hatchback size with crossover functionality and luxury appointments, with better-than-average results. The 2019 Volvo XC40 upends tradition—and traditional style—in mostly acceptable ways, and kicks off the car-subscription era with a stylish bang.
