The GLA is a luxury compact SUV manufactured by Mercedes-Benz which appears as a DLC-exclusive kart body in the Mercedes-Benz × Mario Kart 8 downloadable content pack available for Mario Kart 8. It changes color depending on the driver, having nine different color schemes total. It is thus one of the two DLC vehicles along with City Tripper to change colors. The GLA offers higher weight and traction, but lower acceleration, handling, and mini-turbo; it shares its stats with the Badwagon, Standard ATV, Tri-Speeder, and Steel Driver.

In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, it can be unlocked randomly by collecting coins. CPU Luigi, Roy, or Bowser Jr. can be seen driving this car with the GLA Tires.

Mario driving the GLA appears as one of the many Costume Mario power-ups in Super Mario Maker. It is unlocked when players clear the Mercedes-Benz Jump'n'Drive event course.

Trivia[edit]

  • The GLA and the Gold Standard are the only vehicle bodies in Mario Kart 8 that do not have the character's emblem embedded on them.
  • When driving in Anti-Gravity sections, the "GLA" letters on the back of the vehicle will light up.
