Mercedes-Benz is significantly upgrading the compact GLA SUV with numerous innovations and more extensive standard equipment, much to the delight of motoring enthusiasts.
The new radiator grille with vertical louvres and horizontal fin enhances the powerful character. In addition, the bonnet with discreetly suggested power domes underlines the self-confident appearance. The redesigned front bumper with visual underride protection points to the GLA’s off-road genes. Added to this is the modernised light signature in the standard LED High Performance front headlights and the LED rear lights.
Mercedes-Benz is also expanding the range of options with the new Spectral Blue paint colour and four additional wheel designs. In the basic trim, the new GLA stands on 17-inch five-twin-spoke alloy wheels in high-gloss black with high-gloss turned surfaces. Optional 18- to 20-inch wheels are also available.
The interior is also receiving significant upgrades with the free-standing double screen being one of the highlights. It now includes a 7-inch and a 10.25-inch display as standard for the instrument cluster and multimedia screen respectively. Furthermore, two 10.25-inch wide-screen displays are optionally available. For the first time, a heated steering wheel rim is also available for the AMG Line.
The new GLA is equipped with comfort seats upholstered in ARTICO man-made leather as standard. The Progressive equipment variant offers three interior colours: black, macchiato beige and sagegrey.
