Honoring the brand’s bestsellers, Mercedes-Benz has just come up with an “AMG-fied” package both for the GLA and the CLA models. Since the GLA class had its makeover very recently, there are no major upgrades except for the AMG Performance Studio Package. The most significant changes we’ve noticed only goes to the interior and exterior enhancements.
Nevertheless, the Mercedes-Benz GLA45 is now equipped with the AMG-fied 375hp 2.0 litre inline four cylinder engine with up to 350lb-ft of powerful torque. With a top speed of 155mph, the compact SUV can go from 0-60 mph from a standstill in as short as 4.3 seconds.
In connection to this, the ongoing 2017 Detroit Auto Show showcases the GLA45 compact SUV in Yellow Night Edition. This special package comes with yellow color motif with a hint of grey over its black body paint.
The yellow stands out as you can see from its side mirrors, front aprons and side skirts. This same color accent was also used for its rear wings and rear diffuser. For additional contrast, grey paint has been applied on the AMG signature sports stripes along the sides of the vehicle as well as on the boot, roof and onto its bonnet.
Inside, the new Mercedes Benz GLA45 comes with MB Tex synthetic leather seats with yellow trims and suede inserts. The yellow motif is also seen on the synthetic leather wrapped steering wheel, armrests, beltlines, dashboard and rear seats.
Since both interior and exterior have the same color scheme, you will see the grey tone across the door panels and floor mats along with the AMG logo in color yellow.
If you’re not digging AMG’s Performance Studio Package, you can always have the new GLA SUV in other color and fabric options. As we said earlier, the GLA just had its facelift done, so that means, we can at least expect a few changes here and there.
The lighting system now comes in LED instead of the usual bi-xenon headlights prior to remodeling. Other than black, you can now have this Mercedes in the new Canyon Beige body paint. There is also a new set of fabrics including carbon fibre or matte black ash wood for the interior trims. For the upholstery, you can also have it in Artico man-made leather in any color of your choice.
The Mercedes GLA45 has also received minor enhancements both for the front and rear fascia plus new improved aerodynamics to complete its entire look. In addition, the 481-liter boot now comes with an optional hands-free opening system. Other than the new line-up’s standard 8-inch infotainment device, customers can also avail the latest Android Auto integration for a better experience.
