Introducing the new Mercedes-Benz GLA

The new Mercedes-Benz GLA features added character, added space and added safety. Gaining more than 10 centimetres in height compared to its predecessor, it is the perfect combination of a compact car and an SUV.

With a luxury interior and an exclusively designed exterior, the new GLA has been significantly enhanced and is powered by powerful and efficient engines which were completely modernised for the new edition of the compact model series.

Alongside the efficient petrol and diesel engines, there is also a plug-in hybrid option; the GLA 250 e

Design and Practicality

Mercedes-Benz GLA Rear

Modern and sporty, the GLA SUV has a muscular appearance thanks to its powerful overall proportions with short overhangs front and rear. The vehicle's off-road character is emphasised by the all-round protective cladding, which adds structure to the overall proportions.

Reinforcing the self-assured presence are the wheels, up to 20 inches in size, which are mounted flush with the outer edge of the body. Similarly to other Mercedes-Benz SUV models, the radiator grille features distinctive openings along with a single louvre and a central star.

Depending on the chosen equipment line, integrated roof rails and chrome-plated load sill protection are practical details that may be available as options.

Technology and Safety

Mercedes-Benz GLA Interior

One of the most important features of the new Mercedes-Benz GLA is the added space. Due to being more than 10 centimetres higher than its predecessor, the new GLA offers enhanced headroom in the front and a generous amount of legroom in the rear.

The boot capacity has also increased and features a height-adjustable load floor as standard. Loading bulky items has been made simpler thanks to the almost flat loading area, when the rear seat backrests are folded down and the load floor is in the upper position. Furthermore, the boot can be opened with just a simple foot movement.

Due to an optimised cross-section for the roof pillars, which now block out less of the surrounding area, all-round visibility has been improved for the driver.

Engines and Performance

Mercedes-AMG GLA

Powerful and efficient four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines feature in the new GLA. Compared to the engines in the previous generation, the modernised engines in the new GLA are characterised by significantly increased specific outputs as well as improved efficiency and emissions.

The range topping Mercedes-AMG GLA 35 4MATIC is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine producing 302bhp resulting in an acceleration from zero to 62mph in an outstanding 5.1 seconds.

The new model comes equipped with the optional (standard with the Mercedes-AMG GLA 35 4MATIC) 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive system with fully variable torque distribution. 4MATIC models feature the Off-Roading Engineering Package as standard, which is useful for easy off-road terrain.

For the most efficient model in the range, the GLA 250 e returns an impressive 201.8mpg and the plug-in powertrain delivers an all-electric range of up to 37 miles.
