Mercedes-Benz GLA Class Highlights
The facelifted Mercedes-Benz GLA now comes with additional features on the exteriors as well as the interiors. From the outside, the hatchback comes with the sloping A-pillar and compressed glass area. The high ground clearance and large wheels give a great SUV look to the car. The facelifted car has restyled slats on the grille, new headlight internals, and a redesigned lower bumper section. At the rear, the car comes with the ‘star dust’ treated tail lamps, and the revised silver skid plates.
Mercedes GLA’s dash has a perfect layout. The controls are well-spaced, there are propeller-style air-vents and the new instrument panel is also very attractive. The front seats are electric and they offer firm support along with excellent lateral support. The car also has an electric lumbar adjustment, manual thigh support, a good amount of legroom as well as headroom. The 60:40 foldable seats can be flipped to access the boot. The panorama sunroof makes the car feel airy. The features on the GLA 220d include push-button start, ambient lighting, rain-sensing wipers, a manual air-con, an eight-inch infotainment system display, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. The safety features of the car include ABS, ESP, six airbags, Attention Assist and hill start assist.
The GLA 220d is powered by the 2.2-liter diesel engine with 170bhp of power and 350Nm of peak torque. The engine comes mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The car comes with Eco, Comfort, Sport, Individual and off-road modes. The Eco mode gives the best efficiency but the Comfort mode offers more response than Eco. Sport mode has been designed to deliver high performance. The Individual mode has been designed to adapt to the driving style. The Off-Road mode enhances traction and increases the performance of off-road situations.
The Mercedes-Benz GLA competes with the BMW X1 and the Audi Q3.
