The design of the car was not particularly surprising, since there are quite a few quotes from other models of the manufacturer in the exterior design. The car received a stretched head optics, a radiator grille in the style of a five-door A-class, as well as horizontally oriented taillights.
But if earlier the rear pillar on the car was deaf, then on the Mercedes GLA 2020 in the new body, a triangular window appeared in the back, similar to that used on the B-Class W247 compact van. Of course, the AMG Line package is offered for the car with more aggressive bumpers, a grille with a starry sky effect and a special design of the rims.
In the cabin, almost everything is familiar from the previously presented models of A and B-classes, as well as CLA and GLB, except that the shape of the front panel on the crossover is original. For the rest: the steering wheel, instrument panel and multimedia, round nozzles of the ventilation system – we have seen all this more than once.
The base of the new Mercedes GLA-Klasse 2020 relies on two screens with a diagonal of 7.0 ″, while for a surcharge, the display of the MBUX multimedia system (supports voice commands and displays navigation with augmented reality effect) can be increased to 10.25 ″, and in the top, both screens will be 10.25-inches.
The crossover is based on the modernized modular platform of its predecessor, called the MFA2. The proprietary 4Matic all-wheel drive system with a differential in the rear axle and an integrated clutch by default distributes traction in a ratio of 80:20 in favor of the front axle (in sport mode – 70:30). In this case, the clutch can be forcibly blocked – then the thrust will be divided in half.
In the European market, the base Mercedes GLA 200 is equipped with a 1.33-liter turbo engine of the M282 series with 163 hp. (250 Nm). It is paired with a 7-band robotic gearbox, providing acceleration to hundreds in 8.7 seconds. and a top speed of 210 km / h.
A more powerful GLA 250 4MATIC equipped with a two-liter “turbo four” with 224 hp is offered for the USA. (350 Nm), and at the top of the range is the “heated” modification of the Mercedes-AMG GLA 35 4MATIC, under the hood of which there is a 306-horsepower (400 Nm) engine with a working volume of 2.0 liters. It is combined with the automatic AMG Speedshift DCT-8G, acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 5.1 seconds, the top speed is limited to 250 km / h by electro.
Compared to its predecessor, the crossover Mercedes GLA 2020 model year has significantly increased in height, but at the same time it has become a little shorter. As a result, the length of the car is 4 410 mm (- 14), the wheelbase has grown to 2 729 (+ 30), width – 1 834 (+ 30), height – 1 611 (+ 104), trunk volume – 435 liters versus 421 liters previously.
Due to such transformations, the car was made more spacious: most of all, we managed to carve out legroom for the rear passengers, there was more “air” over the heads, plus it became a little more relaxed in the shoulders. In the company itself, the GLA-Class is positioned as a more youth model, while for family people a 7-seater GLB has appeared in the lineup.
Also, for the SUV, the list of equipment has been significantly expanded, which now includes the Energizing system for controlling comfort functions (for example, the Energizing Seat Kinetic changes the inclination of the seat cushion and backrest, providing a more comfortable fit in terms of orthopedics).
As on the flagship GLS, a special button has appeared here that allows you to quickly prepare the car for washing. When pressed, all windows and the sunroof are automatically closed, the wipers are blocked and air recirculation is turned on.
In terms of security systems, the Mercedes GLA added active monitoring of blind spots (with the prevention of an accident), an emergency maneuvering assistant, warning functions about the presence of people when approaching a pedestrian crossing, as well as the presence of near the car when trying to open the door, etc.
