Progressive in design, versatile and with impressive off-road capability: the Mercedes-Benz GLA has been selling well in Malaysia. Designed to set new benchmarks in efficiency as it mixes practicality with surefooted 4MATIC capability the GLA commands high enthusiasm in its segment.

The first Mercedes-Benz in the fast-growing compact SUV segment, the GLA is highly maneuverable around town (length x width x height 4,417 x 1,804 x 1,494 millimetres), lively on back dusun roads and dynamic and efficient on the PLUS highway (Cd figure 0.29). The high-quality appointments, developed with much love for detail, and the flexible interior clearly position the GLA as a compact premium SUV.

The GLA is the first Mercedes-Benz SUV to be optionally available with the new-generation permanent all-wheel drive system 4MATIC.

As a serene day-to-day companion the GLA has a flexible and variable interior. The rear seat backrests can not only be folded down completely, but are also adjustable for angle if required. The generous luggage compartment (421 – 836 litres) is well-presented and can be loaded without difficulty thanks to the low sill and the wide tailgate, which opens automatically as an option.

The particularly rigid body structure provides a reliable basis for a wide range of applications. Initially the power range of the 1.6 and 2.0-litre petrol engines will extend from 156 hp in the GLA 200 to 211 hp in the GLA 250.
