2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA Range Launched Web 1
The all-new Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class car will be offered in one petrol and two diesel engine options.

The new GLA has arrived sporting a more aggressive look. With a revised front-end more reminiscent of its elder siblings, the new car hopes to reignite the sales charts.

The GLA 200 will remain the base petrol option. The 2.0-litre unit (seen in the GLA 220 overseas) makes 184 PS at 5,500 rpm and a peak torque of 300 Nm between 1,200 and 4,000 rpm. The 200 d and the 220 d are the two diesel options that continue with the 2.2-litre unit. The 200 d produces 136 PS between 3,600 and 4,400 rpm and a peak torque of 300 Nm between 1,600 and 3,000 rpm. The 220 d churns out 170 PS between 3,400 and 4,000 rpm and a peak torque of 350 Nm between 1,400 and 3,400 rpm. Mercedes-Benz are offering their 4MATIC all-wheel drive in the GLA 220 d. In fact, the GLA 220 d 4MATIC is now offered with off-road package as standard.

While most of the car remains the same, the new car is seven mm longer than the outgoing model.

The exterior of the car has been reworked and the new design incorporates LED headlamps, new 18-inch wheels, reworked front and rear bumpers and, redesigned tail lamps.

Would gape at fast cars. Still does but now has a chance to drive some of them. Hates driving in traffic but makes up for with a spot of off-roading or the occasional track outing. Insta: @motoknight
