The Mercedes-Benz GLA is the crossover version of the A-Class, a successful model based on the company's MFA (Modular Front Architecture) platform. This same platform also underpins the CLA-Class and A-Class.
Mercedes-Benz Malaysia introduced the GLA-Class facelift in May 2017 across three variants :
- GLA 200
- GLA 250 4MATIC
- GLA 45 AMG 4MATIC
Similar to the pre-facelift model, the GLA-Class comes fully-imported from Rastatt, Germany.
The GLA 200 is powered by a 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that pushes out 156 hp at 5,300 rpm and 250 Nm from 1,250 – 4,000 rpm. Drive is transferred to the front wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch 7G-DCT automatic transmission.
Moving one step is the GLA 250, which is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder that pushes out 211 hp at 5,500 rpm and 350 Nm from 1,200 – 4,000 rpm. Drive is transferred to all four wheels, also via a 7G-DCT automatic transmission.
The GLA 45 AMG pumps out 381 hp at 6,000 rpm and 475 Nm from 2,250 – 5,000 rpm from the 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder, with drive transferred to all four wheels via 7-speed dual-clutch AMG Speedshift DCT-7 automatic transmission. The sprint from 0-100 km/h is dispensed in just 4.4 seconds.

2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 4MATIC – The Practical Choice
When it comes to a diverse product portfolio, Mercedes-Benz is pretty high up there. They’ve had a pretty extensive model range, catering to a multitude of segments, and took the crossover trend like ducks to water. So perhaps it wasn’t too surprising when they managed to split their MFA platform, first seen in the A-Class back in 2012, and produce the CLA-Class and GLA-Class models. This trio of front-wheel drive compact cars was arguably the reason for the three-pointed star’s return to popularity, at least in our market.View full review
