Mercedes-Benz GLA Edition 1

The utility vehicles market is constantly expanding because the request is high. And don’t even think about the fact that it is overcrowded with crossovers and SUVs because many of the most important brands will contradict you.  Great names such as Bentley, Rolls-Royce, Jaguar, Maserati , Aston Martin and even Lamborghini are 100 percent decided to enter this market. Mercedes-Benz is no exception and it has already launched some SUVs and CUVs, having a great success. One of them is the 2014 Mercedes-Benz GLA, which benefits now of a limited edition called “Edition 1”.

It is not the first time that the Mercedes branded vehicles receive “Edition 1s”. Models such as the A45 AMG, CLA45 AMG and S-Class also have this limited edition. The German crossover will be on the market only for one year, starting November 2013, when order books will be open to the clients. However, deliveries will only begin in March 2014.

The Mercedes-Benz GLA will be available in four exterior paint schemes, the Cirrus White, Mountain Grey Metallic, Orient Brown Metallic and Designo Magno Mountingrau. The edition will receive bi-xenon headlights and five-spoke 19-inch AMG black alloy wheels. It will feature aluminum roof rails, chrome bumper protection and chrome dual tailpipes. When going inside the vehicles from the limited edition, we will discover a leather wrapped steering wheel, some aluminum elements, comfort seats and stainless steel sport pedals.  In order for your regular GLA model to benefit of the “Edition 1” treatment, you will have to pay some additional 6,307 EUR.
