The Mercedes GLA is the German car maker’s smallest SUV and has been built on the MFA platform that includes the A-Class and the CLA sedan. The crossover SUV was introduced in India back in 2014. The Mercedes A-Class received an update globally last year and it was brought to India by Mercedes in the same year. The CLA, which has just received its global update is expected to reach India this year which leaves the only the GLA behind. Updated prototypes of the GLA have been spotted testing globally and the GLA facelift is due before the end of this year.
The GLA update, like its siblings, will be a midlife upgrade. The front and rear bumpers have been tweaked to give the car a fresh look though not very different from the current car. The headlamps are now LED like the A-Class update and the tail lamps will also be tweaked. On the inside, the GLA will continue to get the creature comforts that are currently on the list. It includes the automatic climate control, cruise control, steering mounted audio controls, adjustable steering, power seats with memory function, electrically foldable mirrors et al. The in-car infotainment system will be upgraded with an 8-inch display.
As for the powertrains, the GLA will continue to run the same engines that are being offered now. The 2.0-litre 181bhp petrol engine will be offered along with the 2143cc four-cylinder turbo diesel. Both the engines will be mated to the seven-speed dual clutch gearbox, a regular fixture on the MFA platform. With the green tribunal ruling further extended, Mercedes may think of bringing the 1.5-litre turbo-diesel that develops 108bhp that is available globally.
The GLA will continue to compete with the likes of the BMW X1 and the Audi Q3 in the Indian market along with the Mini Countryman. As for the price tag, you can expect it to be marginally over the current car in lieu of the equipment upgrade.
