New GLA Preview
Mercedes-Benz has taken the wraps off the new-gen GLA in a digital reveal on the ‘Mercedes me’ media communication platform. The new model will get additional features, additional cabin space and revised powertrain option. The new-gen GLA will hit the market only by the middle of next year while the Indian-debut is expected to happen by end-2020.
The new model gets new redesigned headlamps and unlike those seen on any other Merc SUV. The grille and the front bumpers are reworked as well. Meanwhile, at the back, there’s a newly-devised tail lamp design which is similar to the one seen on the GLE. The 35 AMG variant gets usual performance bits like a Panamericana grille, aggressive bumpers both fore and aft and a rear spoiler. Overall the second-gen GLA now looks more mature and handsome as compared to the contemporary design of the outgoing model.
In terms of appearance, the larger dimensions have helped the GLA with its SUV-ish stance. Along with a longer wheelbase compared to the outgoing model, the new GLA is also taller by around 105mm with increased ground clearance. It is also wider but the overall length is slightly reduced compared to the older model. It is based on the new A-Class’ MFA platform but the styling is much different compared to the hatchback.
