Mercdes Bens GLA 2018 facelift gets some cosmetic tweaks, but remains mechanically identical to the pre-facelift model. The front and rear bumpers are all new, while the grille also gets a tweaked design. The bi-xenon headlamps of the outgoing model have been replaced by all LED units with DRLs. The LED taillights have also been redesigned. The side profile remains similar to that of the previous model, save for the new 18-inch alloy wheels. On the inside, the dashboard layout has been carried over without any major changes, though the car now gets a new 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Navigation is being offered as an optional extra. There is also an ambient lighting system on offer, which comes with 12 color options.

The SUV, which leads Mercedes’s new generation cars (NGC) segment – which includes the A, B and GLA and CLA Class models – comes with a dynamic design, powerful appearance and is available in three engine variants – GLA 200, GLA 200 d and GLA 220 d 4 Matic. These include a 183hp, 2.0-litre turbo petrol and a 2.1-litre diesel. The latter comes in two states of tune, making 136hp in the 200d variants and 170hp in the 220d variants. The list of safety features includes 6 airbags, ABS, EBD, ESP traction control and driver attention assist. The NGC is the automaker’s biggest volume contributor, with over 13,000 units on the roads, and within the segment, the GLA Class leads in volume.
