Series II GLA
1 Jun 2017
Mercedes-Benz Australia released its facelifted GLA small SUV, increasing costs while also adding higher levels of standard equipment across its four-variant crossover range.
The GLA received a subtle styling update with new front and rear bumpers and a tweaked grille.
In exchange for price rises, the GLA received LED headlights, a redesigned instrument cluster, silver chrome-accented interior and new-look wheels on most variants, as well as hands-free access to the boot via a kicking motion on all grades barring the GLA180.
The German car-maker also offered an optional 360-degree parking camera for the first time as part of either the Vision or Parking Packages.
Buyers that looked to differentiate their vehicle from the standard fare could opt for a White Art Edition pack for the GLA180, 220d and 250, while AMG 45 customers had access to the Yellow Night Edition.
The White Art Edition option bundled sports seats, a sports steering wheel, microfibre trim, black interior, white air vent surrounds, 19-inch bi-colour wheels and a striped external decal. The package on these models includes the AMG Line pack.
The Yellow Night Edition on the other hand, packed AMG Performance seats and steering wheel, AMG Aerodynamics Package and 20-inch AMG alloy wheels, as well as yellow-accented interior, front apron, side sills, side mirrors, rear diffuser and spoiler end-plates.
