The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class will most likely be compared against the BMW X1 and Audi Q3, neither of which we're completely impressed with.
If you're looking for a small luxury 'ute, the Mercedes may be the best pick between the three, but there are others from with to choose.
We like the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque because of its dynamic shape and interior comfort.
The Lexus NX is a likely competitor in turbo-4 form, but there's also a hybrid that can achieve more than 30 mpg combined.
The Lincoln MKC is a good crossover, and with plenty of power, it's a sneaky pick.
