Mercedes will uncover new GLA mid-route through one month from now, in view of a similar stage as the most recent A-Class
The all-new Mercedes GLA reduced hybrid will be disclosed in a selective online occasion on 11 December. At the point when it arrives at the UK one year from now, it will frame a fundamental piece of the German brand’s attack on the SUV advertise, joining the as of late discharged Mercedes-Maybach GLS and offering rivalry for the Audi Q2 and BMW X2.
The GLA will remain the littlest, least expensive individual from Mercedes’ SUV family and, despite the fact that the present model got a midlife invigorate at January’s Detroit Motor Show, the second-age vehicle is experiencing the last phases of its improvement program in front of its booked presentation one month from now.
Our selective picture sees the new GLA’s styling. As it appears, we don’t expect the new vehicle’s plan to be excessively far expelled from the present model, keeping the somewhat harder look presented with the model’s facelift – in spite of the fact that our past spy shots propose it will be set apart out by new LED headlights and tail-lights.
The GLA’s significant modifications will be under the skin. Mercedes as of late presented a vigorously reconsidered variant of its MFA engineering, alongside the dispatch of the fourth-age A-Class. Called MFA2, the new engineering will support the following GLA, giving an expansion in width and a more drawn out wheelbase for extra space in the lodge.
Regarding power, we expect the new GLA will embrace a similar scope of motors found in the new A-Class. That implies purchasers will be offered Mercedes’ most recent turbocharged 2.0-liter four-chamber diesel motors, with either 148bhp or 188bhp, just as a section level 114bhp 1.5-liter diesel.
A 221bhp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-chamber oil motor will likewise be accessible, while a 400bhp-in addition to Mercedes-AMG variation will sit at the highest point of the range. The MFA2 stage could likewise make ready for module half and half tech, albeit any part-energized GLA is dependent on Mercedes testing the powertrain’s adequacy in the new A-Class first.
The progressions will proceed inside, where Mercedes will present its most recent MBUX lodge engineering, additionally found on the new A-Class. Section level vehicles will be offered with a couple of seven-inch screens, with a computerized instrument group sitting before the driver and a touchscreen unit mounted in the inside comfort. Like with the new A-Class, purchasers ought to likewise be offered the choice to move up to a couple of 10.25-inch screens.
The GLA should come outfitted with Mercedes’ cutting edge semi-self-governing driving help tech, as well. The new A-Class got the company’s dynamic distronic radar guided voyage control framework, dynamic brake help and path keeping help – highlights which should all be moved on to the GLA.
