The high-quality appointments ensure the model will have a great position as a premium SUV. At the same time, the GLA-Class is the fourth of a total of five new compact models fro Mercedes-Benz. IN terms of interior, the model comes with the rear seat backrest that can not only be folded down completely, but are also adjustable for angle if required. Under the hood, there is a 1.6-liter, but there is also a 2.0-liter petrol unit capable of generating 156 horsepower in the GLA 200 and 211 horsepower in the GLA 250.

The two diesel engines will have a dynamic torque and great efficiency. The GLA 200 CDI develops 136 horsepower and 300 nm of torque and has a 2.2 displacement. We will all have the opportunity to see it for the first time at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt next month. There are five round air vents integrated into the dashboard. The direction of the airflow can be varied by butterfly-shaped inserts which can be optionally galvanized in silver-shadow. The sport seats have a good quality material emphasized by the aperture n the lower section of the head restraint. All the engines come with the ECO start / stop function as standard.

The engines are paired to a 6-speed manual transmission or with the 7G-DCT dual clutch automatic transmission which unites comfort and sportiness to an incredible degree. We will steel have to wait for information regarding on the price, so stay tuned.
