Building your perfect Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class
Mercedes-Benz know a thing or two about engineering innovative cars with luxury in mind, and the GLA-Class is a fine example of this. Its streamlined silhouette and lavish interior are part of the allure of the GLA-Class; not to mention the assortment of powerful and efficient powertrains on offer.
Thanks to the Mercedes-Benz configurator, there is a specification for each individual's needs and wants, each one customisable with a wide selection of design touches, impressive technology, and efficient engines.
If you are in need of some inspiration, we showcase just how many customisations are on offer with our top five configurations below.
GLA 200 Sport Executive
Our first configuration is proof that lower specification GLA models do not sacrifice quality in any sense, as they are available with many of the same features seen in the Mercedes-Benz range-topping AMG models.
The additional Mountain Grey Metallic body colour accentuates the bold structure of the GLA Class, going hand-in-hand with the polished silver 18-inch 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels and aluminium roof rails for the perfect contrast.
Being the most affordable trim, the range of additional extras on offer are fairly sparse, but you still get heated front seats, MBUX multimedia system, climate control, and an engine that provides an effortless driving experience.
GLA 250 e AMG Line Premium
Next up is the 250 e AMG Line Premium, a superb choice for those looking for a premium hybrid SUV with low fuel consumption. Designed with style in mind, the Cosmos Black Metallic paint allows the 19-inch AMG 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels to speak for themselves, adding to its alluring presence.
The audacious exterior style features a diamond radiator grille and sharp MULTIBEAM LED lights – just a couple of the luxury touches featured in this addition. And the interior is no different, with welcome touches of refinement, including heated front comfort seats and a 10-inch digital instrument display for every entertainment need.
The 250 e hybrid powertrain is a top performer in this specification, offering a comfortable, smooth driving experience and excellent fuel economy; the best in the range.
GLA 200 AMG Line Premium Plus Night Edition
A bestseller amongst the GLA-Class specifications, the 200 AMG Line Premium Plus Night Edition is an incredible choice, intensified further by the Digital White Metallic colour opted with this model.
Standing out against the white body with their bold and brave presence are the impressive 20-inch AMG multi-spoke light-alloy wheels. And this dark theme is continued inside, with black ARTICO man-made leather seats and DINAMICA microfibre upholstery leather comfort seats complete the overall slick look of this outstanding SUV.
For the adventurous types, opting for the trailer coupling with ESP® trailer stabilisation allows users to attach a bicycle rack and tow a caravan or trailer, ideal for taking your GLA-Class through countryside roads.
Mercedes-AMG GLA 35 4MATIC
Here we have opted for the eye-catching Denim Blue colour, which strikes up a perfect contrast with the Tantalum Grey 19-inch 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels, and the fine-detailed door panels with inserts in silver chrome.
Step inside to find the carefully chosen leather seats in two-tone titanium grey pearl and black and the standard MBUX infotainment system with its innovative operating and display concept, which is just another plus to the 35 4MATIC trim.
The Parking Package is also included as standard on all 4MATIC models, with innovative features such as Reversing Camera and Active Parking Assist PARKTRONIC to aid drivers in manoeuvring through windy city streets and car parks.
Mercedes-AMG GLA 45 S 4MATIC+ Plus
Finally, the high-spec, high-performance 45 S 4MATIC+ Plus. It is the most powerful petrol model in the range, absolving the sprint of 0 to 62mph in just 4.4 seconds - that is pretty impressive for an SUV.
This particular model is finished in an aesthetically pleasing ANUFAKTUR Patagonia Red Metallic paint, chosen to complement the red details throughout the interior, adding leather 2-tone classic red/black seats and upholstery.
The high-tech ambience inside the 45 S 4MATIC + Plus is completed with fully-digital displays and characteristic touches such as an MBUX infotainment system for all entertainment needs.
Opt for the Driving Assistance Package with this model, and you get an array of automated driving features, including speed adjustment and steering assist, to aid towards making your journey a relaxing and safe one.
