I just had a phone call from my local Mercedes garage to let me know that they had confirmation this morning that the new GLA will be added to the scheme for Q4.
I’ve ordered an XC40 as I was unsure whether it would join the scheme. A little bit of me wishes I’d waited but hey ho!

that’s good news for all the gla lovers, personally I prefer the xc40 but if you really want the gla just cancel your order no? The xc40 is a very popular car yours will end up being sold straight away, you don’t need to accept anything until you enter the pinSeptember 16, 2020 at 11:42 am #123900vinalspinParticipant
How does a local dealership know what’s coming on the scheme when Motability doesn’t even know yet?September 16, 2020 at 12:14 pm #12391172 dudes
Also would seem to suggest that, if true, Motability have finally done away with the whole ‘base model must be under £30k’ rule.
Surely this would have warranted an announcement or an addition to the website?September 16, 2020 at 12:42 pm #123916Ianfca
There always seems to be anomaly’s with the £30k rule, the ford galaxy starts at over £32k for the base model.September 16, 2020 at 4:19 pm #123971TheSUVGuy
Vinalspin, around this time just before the new Q, some motability salesmen and their manager go with someone higher up of their car brand to a meeting with motability (probably done on zoom now lol) anyway and they agree on the prices, I know this because I have a friend that used to work at seat, of course this could be different for each car brand who knows) but eg 1.5 years ago my family got an ateca, we knew the prices were gonna go up so we ordered before it didSeptember 17, 2020 at 2:02 pm #124051Chris
“How does a local dealership know what’s coming on the scheme when Motability doesn’t even know yet?”
I was talking to a rep in Mercedes last week and I asked him will he know if the GLA has plans to come back on, and he said ‘i’ll find out 1st of October just like you would online’
Then took a Q2 out, but it didn’t really suit us, so I asked the Audi rep if he thinks there’s a chance the Q3 would be reintroduced and he said ‘I’d like to think so, so what I can do is contact you a few days before the 1st of Oct, as I get to see whats coming on to the list’
I guess it depends on your position in the dealership, if you get to see the new list early or not!?September 17, 2020 at 2:47 pm #124058John Newton
If the GLA does come on at a sensible price it will give me a dilemma on whether to cancel my B200 or not , And even if it is a sensible price if the lead time is too long then I will just go ahead with my current orderSeptember 17, 2020 at 3:12 pm #124063Chris
The rep said “If the GLA came on, the lead time would likely be Dec-Jan”
When I asked the Audi rep on Q3 he said “if Q3 came on to the scheme, depending on what colour/spec you wanted, you could probably get one straight away, there are plenty stocked” make that as you willSeptember 17, 2020 at 3:26 pm #124065StuartParticipant
I had a Q3 as my first ever MB car it was the 2 litre quattro sline and the best car i have ever owned. Fingers crossed for the good old days returning.

Absolutely loved my old Q3, wish I had specced up on it, and gone for the black edition at the time, instead of the x1. But fancied a change. Looks fantastic in it’s new version.September 17, 2020 at 4:21 pm #124075Chris
Lord Muc, the rep let us sit in the new Q3, and its very nice, I had a Rline Tiggy last time, and it looks very similar inside. Very classySeptember 17, 2020 at 10:54 pm #124110Andrew
Would think GLA will be priced along lines of CLA around £3750 for top spec .
Thats £1400 more than B200 premium plus which I think is great value if you can get one,
as they have same dimensions and almost identical interiors, just GLA Is jacked up 5cm higher.September 18, 2020 at 9:22 am #124136wmcforumWhich Mobility Car
No prices as yet but the GLA’s to be added on 1st October are all Automatics.
GLA 180 in all trims: Sport, Sport Executive, AMG Line, AMG Line Executive, AMG Line Premium and AMG Line Premium Plus.
GLA 200 only in Sport trim.September 18, 2020 at 10:09 am #124138TheSUVGuy

Makes the B200 Amg premium plus look even better value nowSeptember 18, 2020 at 6:33 pm #124211John Newton

Was hoping for gla 200 in better trims or maybe a 4 wheel drive but suppose at least there on here nowSeptember 22, 2020 at 11:54 am #124443Chris
No prices Ree?September 22, 2020 at 4:21 pm #124466NewYork1Participant
I’m still hopeful for the GLB to come on soon. The difference between them is only £1500 like for like and your getting a lot more car with the GLB in my opinion. Much more practical for those that need the space.
GLA is still a very nice car though.
