The Mercedes-Benz GLA returns in its latest generation. Is this the best possible way to begin your German luxury SUV experience?
We really like the silhouette of the new GLA, which looks a lot more SUV-like than the outgoing model. The new design language with its softer edges also looks a lot more like its bigger cousins, the GLC and the GLE. The wide shoulders and haunches also help make its presence felt on the road. This is the AMG Line car, distinguished head-on by the chrome stars on the grill, this sportier front bumper and chrome lower splitter.
There are two engine options available: a 1.3-litre turbo petrol and a 2.0-litre diesel. The petrol drives only the front wheels via a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox. The diesel sports an 8-speed gearbox and in the Progressive Line trim sends power only to the front wheels. This diesel makes 190PS and 400Nm and has a punchy character to it. The AMG variant, though, is the 4MATIC version and so drives all four wheels.
With prices starting at Rs 43.60 lakh and going up to Rs 47.70 lakh for this AMG Line 4MATIC (there’s a slightly cuckoo AMG 35 variant too, but that’s 10 lakhs more), it is pricing itself a cut above the competition.
