mercedes benz gla prices announced

 

The fifth and smallest of Mercedes’SUV range, the baby GLA, will be available from March 2014 in Europe, Mercedes-Benz has confirmed. The GLA will be available in a total of 7 variants, with prices starting from under 30,000 euros (INR 20 lakh).

 

The Mercedes GLA is based on the same compact car platform which also serves the A-Class, B-Class, and the CLA. Mercedes will offer the GLA with a choice of two petrol and two diesel variants, with 4MATIC four-wheel drive  being offered on 3 of the 7 variants. These include:

GLA 200 – 1.6 litre petrol, 156 PS and 250 Nm

GLA 250 – 2.0-litre petrol, 211 PS and 350 Nm

GLA 250 4MATIC – 2.0-litre petrol, 211 PS and 350 Nm

GLA 200 CDI – 2.1-litre diesel, 136 PS and 300 Nm

GLA 200 CDI 4MATIC – 2.1-litre diesel, 136 PS and 300 Nm

GLA 220 CDI – 2.1-litre diesel, 170 PS and 350 Nm

GLA 220 CDI 4MATIC – 2.1-litre diesel, 170 PS and 350 Nm

 

Mercedes also displayed a recent AMG version of the GLA, with a high-performance turbocharged petrol engine, but that version has not yet been confirmed, although such a confirmation would be a formality.

 

The GLA will also be offered in three trim levels, including Style, Urban and AMG Line. The Style features 17-inch wheels, chrome on the twin-slat grille and has Artico man-made leather interiors along with carbon-fibre lookalike trim. The Urban line has 18-inch wheels with a silver-painted grille, ‘wave’ pattern interior trim, and sporty red needles on the instrument cluster. The AMG Line offers special 18-inch AMG light-alloy wheels and twin exhaust pipes integrated into the rear bumper. The suspension is also 15 mm lower, and tuned for more dynamic handling. On the inside, the AMG Line-spec GLA boasts of a flat-bottomed steering wheel with perforated leather on the grip sections, and combination Artico leather/Dinamica fibre upholstery with contrast top stitching.

 

Sales of the GLA will commence from March next year, although the four-wheel drive models will only be available from May onwards. The Mercedes-Benz GLA will definitely have an Indian future as well, although whether Mercedes-Benz brings the car in in end-2014 or early 2015 is not yet clear.
