This new striking model marks a whole new approach for Mercedes-Benz in the compact SUV segment.
“This is a sporty and more coupé-like evolution of this category of vehicle”, explained Dr Joachim Schmidt, Head of Sales and Marketing, Mercedes-Benz Cars. Combining dramatic styling with tough off-road looks, the GLA shares its design credentials with the recently launched A-Class.
The GLA has a flexible and variable interior. The rear seat backrests can not only be folded down completely, but are also adjustable for angle if required. The generous luggage compartment (421 – 836 litres) is well-presented and can be loaded without difficulty thanks to the low sill and the wide tailgate, which opens automatically as an option.
Setting new standards in its segment, the GLA can achieve combined fuel economy of up to 65 mpg. Modern four-cylinder engines with turbocharging and direct injection, as well as an ECO start/stop function as standard, make for this superior efficiency. The new GLA-Class also takes the lead in its segment with its dynamic performance figures, with CO2 emissions as low as 119g/km.
The GLA SE with 17" alloy wheels in a 5-twin spoke design, beltline strips in chrome optic and twin-louvre grille makes a strong impression with new styling features inside and out. The interior of the SE features ARTICO leather¹ upholstery for the seats with extendable seat cushions.
The Mercedes-Benz GLA Sport conquers the road with style, functionality and exhilarating technology – from the chrome-style front apron and the18" alloy wheels to the twin-pipe exhaust system with chrome detail. The Sport interior welcomes you with ARTICO leather¹ upholstery and a wave-design trim in silver or anthracite. The nappa leather-trimmed multifunction 12-button steering wheel puts all your driving information at your fingertips. Along the way you’re supported by clever technology: ATTENTION ASSIST alerts you if you lose concentration on long journeys, while the reversing camera helps you keep the GLA scratch-free. The rear armrest has two cup holders, and there are plenty of useful stowage areas throughout – including up to 481litres of luggage space in the boot. For your entertainment, the GLA Sport comes with Audio20 CD multimedia system featuring a 8-inch Media Display.
The GLA AMG Line lends even greater sporty appeal to our striking new SUV. Equipped with all the functional and technological assets of the Sport, the GLA AMG Line also comes with AMG bodystyling, perforated front brake discs and brake calipers with ‘Mercedes-Benz’ lettering. The sports seats with integrated head restraints featuring black ARTICO leather¹/DINAMICA microfibre upholstery offer support on every terrain, and for a firm grip the brushed stainless steel sports pedals are fitted with rubber studs.
The Mercedes-AMG GLA45 4MATIC delivers outstanding performance and efficiency. Equipped with the world’s most powerful 4-cylinder engine, the GLA45 4MATIC produces 381hp (280kW) from a capacity of just 2 litres. The high-performance powertrain generates 475Nm of torque and accelerates the car from 0–62mph in 4.4 seconds. A walk around the GLA45 4MATIC reveals striking characteristics: 19"AMG alloy wheels with red brake calipers, AMG bodystyling all round and AMG sports exhaust with chromed twin tailpipes. Inside, all the controls and displays reflect performance-driven design, like the AMG DRIVE UNIT with E-SELECT in the centre console and the AMG instrument cluster, for example. AMG Performance seats are upholstered in ARTICO leather¹/DINAMICA microfibre with red contrast stitching and red designo seat belts.
