The horsepower of the Mercedes is by 11 % grater in relation to the Opel Mokka 1.4 Turbo ECOTEC 140HP manual. While the difference is small this should not affect the vehicles performance in a noticeable way.
The Mercedes GLA has 52 Nm more torque in relation to the Opel Mokka. Even though the majority of drivers do not attach importance the maximum torque when buying a vehicle, it reflects the best how a car is speeding up. In this case the difference is of considerable size thus the Mercedes GLA will give you better sensation of driving.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
The Opel Mokka accelerates from 0 to 100 Km/h relatively slower in
comparison to the Mercedes GLA. The
difference at the level of
1 s is
not really significant and it should
not be substantially taken into
account when buying one of compared
The maximum velocity of the Mercedes GLA is higher in comparison to this of the Opel Mokka 1.4 Turbo ECOTEC 140HP manual which allows to travel the same distance on the highway faster. The difference at the level of 11 percent is small and is imperceptible in daily use.
Maximal torque RPM
The rotational speed where the maximum torque is delivered tells us how fast an engine reaches its full output with increase in revolutions. The lower revolutions or the wider range in which the torque is the highest, the more the engine is flexible and a sensation of acceleration should be felt earlier.
distance between left and right side of a vehicle directly affects the amount of space for passengers as well as stability on road. The width of the Mercedes GLA is larger only by 2 percent in comparison to the Opel and is not really important. The average for the „compact SUV” class is 1,797 millimeters and is by 7 millimeters smaller than the same feature of the Mercedes GLA.
The wheelbase of a vehicle equals the distance separating its front and rear wheels. The wheelbase notably affects the driving because of more appropriate vehicle's weight distribution. Mercedes GLA has 146 millimeters longer wheelbase distance in comparison to Opel Mokka. Wheelbase dimensions are crucial to the stability and steering. Thus, the mass of Mercedes should be better distributed and driving should be easier and safer.
Trunk length with seats up
The Mercedes GLA 200 156HP manual has 17 percent greater cubic capacity in comparison to the Opel. As the difference is little, the Mercedes GLA should accelerate only a bit better, if other paramerters are does not play a role.
The Mercedes GLA is 139 millimeters longer when compared to the Opel Mokka. The length of the vehicle plays a role when it comes to travelling comfort and space in the trunk. The Mercedes GLA very likely will be offering to it's users more space for legs.

Model release date
Given that the Opel Mokka's production began only 1 year earlier than the Mercedes GLA, the distance in technology applied in both vehicles shouldn’t be really huge, however, the Mercedes GLA 200 156HP manual might feature slightly more modern solutions applied in it.
