The new Mercedes GLA is here
Mercedes showed the new face of the GLA, the compact crossover model, at the Detroit Auto Show.
Mercedes, which is one of the brands that realized the most promotional activities during the year due to the diversity of the product range, opened the 2017 with the make-up version of the compact crossover model GLA. As expected in the new model, which is confronted by the event held under the Detroit Auto Show, the non-revolutionary changes are striking. The interior of the new model, which was camouflaged as it was in the past, has been elaborated with the exterior design.
As we expected, Mercedes is bumping on the outside of the new GLA’s makeup operation with bumpers and lights. Entering the “fitness program” with front and rear bumpers giving more SUV images, the GLA now has a much more dynamic structure. Mercedes has completed this image with a height increase of 30 mm, which is closer to a SUV and with Bi-xenon headlamps as an option as well as LED headlamps. The light-weight, new-generation wheels with bumpers and lights are also the ones that complement this look of the model.
Personalization has new options in the upholstery foot, as well as a centered chrome-plated cockpit. The selection of fabrics as well as handmade leather, wood and carbon fiber details are among the options that make a difference as hardware levels change. The screen sizes vary between 7 and 8 inches, depending on the hardware level, while there are no changes to the central multimedia display. 2017 GLA’s most remarkable innovation in terms of technological hardware is 360 degree camera. Users will be able to purchase a 360 degree camera system at an extra cost, allowing them to see what is around the car from the center display. Mercedes is also offering the new GLA specifically the “Night Pack”, offering 18-inch wheels, black front grille, black roof studs and a sporty front bumper.
Mercedes-AMG GLA 45
The GLA model, which passed through the AMG department’s strainer, also received from the renewal of 2017. The new AMG radiator, 20-inch rims and rear spoiler, along with front and rear bumpers that have a positive effect on the aerodynamic structure of the GLA 45, have been redesigned to positively impact the performance of the vehicle. Just as in the standard model, AMG version GLA also comes with a hand-crafted cocktail that is completely created. Mercedes has not neglected to offer a limited number of Night Packs (yellow) specifically for 2017. The 2.0-liter turbo engine, which we’re probably seeing about the last generation, has not found any change in power at 376 hp. The 2017 GLA series is expected to take its place in the galleries in the first quarter of the year while meeting with users at an initial price of 28.940 euros in Germany.
