As good as the new GLA might be, it has entered a segment that it never mastered. So to see if it actually is worthy of the crown, we had to put it up against two of its main rivals, the Volvo XC40 and the Mini Countryman Cooper S. The GLA might be the least powerful but has the best interior and the strong badge value. But then, the Volvo has the size, features and exclusivity, and the Mini is just brimming with character. So it is anyone’s match this.
