Mercedes-Benz has launched the 2017 GLA with a facelift and a few new features. Thanks to the GST, the new GLA costs less than the outgoing model. The ex-showroom pricing is as follows:


GLA 200 Sport Petrol: Rs 32.2 lakh
GLA 200 d Style Diesel: Rs 30.65 lakh
GLA 200 d Sport Diesel: Rs 33.85 lakh
GLA 220 d 4Matic Sport Diesel: Rs 36.75 lakh


On the design front, the new car gets a restyled bumper with a larger air dam. The two-slat silver grille now features tasteful chrome ornaments on either side of the three-pointed star. Although the headlight assembly looks similar to the previous GLA, the bi-xenon light source has made way for efficient LED units. A new set of 18-inch alloy wheels rounds up the exteriors.

Inside, the 2017 GLA remains identical to the outgoing model save for the configurable ambient lighting. The 8-inch infotainment system hasn't grown in size, but it now supports smartphone connectivity with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.


The hardware under the hood remains untouched, and the compact luxury SUV still comes with a 2.0-litre petrol and a 2.1-litre diesel engine. The petrol motor makes 183PS of power and 300Nm of torque. The diesel mill produces 136PS of power and 300Nm of torque. The 4Matic all-wheel drive will be available in the GLA 220 d guise with an increased output of 170PS and 350Nm from the same 2.1-litre diesel engine. A 7-speed dual clutch transmission is standard across the range.


The AMG-tuned GLA 45 will launch later in 2017 with similar cosmetic updates. The locally assembled SUV will challenge the BMW X1 and the Audi Q3. Post-GST prices for the two luxury SUVs aren't out yet but expected to remain competitive to challenge the new GLA.
