2. Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class
Part crossover, part sports sedan, and part hatchback, the GLA is not only incredibly fun to drive, it also has a great interior. The 208 horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine has ample power to get you where you need to go quickly, all while sipping gas from the tank. EPA estimates the fuel mileage for the GLA45 AMG at 25 mpg city and 35 mpg highway. The GLA comes standard with front wheel drive, with all-wheel drive as an option. A seven-speed automatic delivers power to the wheels regardless of which powertrain you choose. There is plenty of seating space in the handsome interior as well as ample cargo space, making the GLA a comfortable road trip vehicle for long trips.
