I've been looking into getting an SUV for the family. Would you say the GLA is a spacious car for a family of four? They do look quite small in pictures and i have yet to see them up front.
It's fine for two adults and two kids but probably not good for regular long journeys with two tall, full-size teenagers. That said, I took two adults (plus me) and two teenagers on a long journey without too much complaining from the back. It depends how big you are as a family. I'm 6'3", my girlfriend is 5'10" and my kids are as tall as me! A 'small' family of five would probably be okay in a GLA. It really is a very comfy car
We've had snow here for many weeks now on the mountainsides of North Wales, and my GLA shod with winter boots has not slipped more than a few inches at any time, and I'm no sedate driver. I can't sing its praises high enough as a compact SUV with an emphasis on the 'sport'
