2 Variants Of All-New Mercedes-Benz GLA Debuts In Malaysia

Just as we wrap up the year and the SST-discounted car sales come to a close, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia pull off one last model launch. It’s the all-new GLA, the company’s smallest and most affordable crossover SUV entry. The all-new GLA follows the company’s launch of the GLB earlier this year.

The all-new GLA sports a distinctly squat and rugged design profile and at 4.41m in length, is the shortest Benz on offer today. Despite being shorter overall, the new interior is more spacious than the previous GLA, thanks to better packaging. The front passengers also enjoy a more upright seating position. Protective cladding around the body and under body plastic guard pieces work with the slightly elevated ride height to create the look of an off-roader.

There are two variants available at launch: GLA 200 Progressive Line and GLA 250 AMG Line. Here’s how they’re equipped and priced.
