2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA 200 | GLA 250 : New Entry-Level SUV!
The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA is their eight model, and the entry level, to their premium SUV line-up.
It offer the best features of two very successful segments – the compact car, and the SUV; at more affordable price points.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Mercedes-Benz launched the 2020 GLA in a digital premiere. Let’s take a look at what’s new…
The front section of the 2020 GLA flows over the A-pillar into the visually compact greenhouse. With a length of 4.41 metres, it is the shortest vehicle from the current Mercedes-Benz portfolio which is just perfect for life in the city.
Typical of the GLA are the bodywork shoulders and the coupé-like lines of the side windows. This contoured side profile gives the car its dynamically elegant flair.
Like other Mercedes-Benz SUV models, the radiator grille features distinctive openings along with a single louvre and a central star, with LED High Performance headlamps.
The GLA 200 is equipped in Progressive Line with 18-inch 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels, while the GLA 250 is equipped with AMG Line bodystyling with lowered and dynamically tuned suspension.
The instrument panel features optical “cut-outs” in the driver and front passenger area.
The cut-out on the driver’s side is dominated by the free-standing display unit, which is with two 10.25-inch displays. The Mercedes me connect also comes as standard in the GLA.
The round ventilation outlets, five of them in all, feature a high-quality turbine look with meticulously designed air guidance vanes. The door centre panel flows seamlessly over into the armrest. The grab and assist handle has a tubular profile and runs horizontally like a railing.
Also featured in both models is the intuitively operated MBUX infotainment system (Mercedes-Benz User Experience). MBUX can be individually configured with the aid of a range of options.
Although shorter than its predecessor on the outside, the 2020 GLA offers a more spacious interior, with more legroom in the rear and a larger luggage compartment.
The seating position for both the driver and the front passenger is higher and more upright than in the predecessor model, and thus more typical of an SUV.
Utility value was, in general, one of the focuses of development. There is plenty of room for one or two people in the rear since these backrest variants come with a 40:60 split. The rear seat back rest can be can be split 40:20:40, with each section folding down individually.
The height-adjustable load floor offers considerable variability. When the rear seat backrests are folded down and the load floor is in the upper position, an almost flat loading area extending to the front seats can be created.
Mercedes-Benz offers two engine variants – GLA 200 Progressive Line, and GLA 250 AMG Line.
The 2020 GLA 200 Progressive Line is powered by the 1.3-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine combined with the 7G-DCT automatic transmission.
It develops 120 kw (163 hp) and a maximum torque of 250 Nm, allowing the vehicle to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 8.7 seconds.
Powering the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 4MATIC AMG Line is the 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with the 8G-DCT automatic transmission.
It rates at 165 kW (224 hp) and produces a maximum torque of 350 Nm, accelerating the car from 0-100 km/h in only 6.9 seconds.
