Mercedes GLA to get a major redesign

Mercedes GLA to get a major redesign

Mercedes-Benz has just unleashed the 2020 GLB, but the automaker isn't going to drop its other compact SUV option in the segment, the GLA. In fact, a redesign for the GLA is coming it will likely trail the GLB by about a year, meaning we should see it in the markets for the 2021 model year.

The spy shots show the new GLA maintains the current model's hatch-like shape to help differentiate it from the boxier GLB. The GLA also has a much shorter wheelbase than the GLB. The ride height looks to have been increased compared to the current GLA, with the low stance being one of the biggest criticisms of the current model. The tall, hatch-like design is meant to appeal to older buyers who appreciate vehicles that are easy to get in and out of, but aren’t looking for SUVs.

The new GLA is based on the same MFA2 (Mercedes Front-drive Architecture) as the new A-Class and the redesigned CLA and will feature turbo-4 engines, a dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive. A plug-in hybrid option will likely be offered at some point as well.

The Mercedes-AMG division is likely to offer its own versions of the GLA. These should include a new GLA35 with 302 horsepower and a repeat of the GLA45 with over 400 hp on tap. The MFA2-based cars also benefit from a much more advanced interface. Dubbed MBUX, short for Mercedes-Benz User Experience, the new interface features digital screens for the instrument cluster and infotainment system, much like on the pricier E-Class and S-Class models. There's also touch capability for the infotainment screen and you'll also be able to use natural speech to control many vehicle functions.
