Mercedes-Benz SUV range swells with new compact crossover…

Australia’s thirst for compact SUV’s continues unabated and almost every car manufacturer is racing to get in on the action.

Mercedes-Benz is the latest to launch a new crossover – called the GLA.

Two variants are available – GLA 200 CDI and GLA 250 4MATIC.

The GLA 250 obviously features the Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC all-wheel drive system.

Under the bonnet, the turbo diesel GLA 200 develops 100kW and 300Nm, the turbo petrol in the GLA 250 delivers 155kW and 350Nm.

Despite having what Mercedes-Benz describes as a “muscular and imposing appearance” on the outside, they say the cabin brings levels of refinement in line with other Mercedes-Benz models.

Gorden Wagener, Vice President Design Daimler AG, says the new GLA creates a bridge between modernity and the avant-garde, between tradition and progression.

“With its striking features the GLA embodies our progressive thinking and enthrals with its off-road proportions,”

“The clearly defined surfaces convey power and serenity, and we have managed to combine as much emotional appeal as possible with as much purity as necessary.”
