    In terms of curiosity and a thirst for adventure, the GLA is a genuine off-road vehicle. On the other hand, the dynamic design lines emanate pure forward thrust, almost like a sports coupé. See for yourself and marvel: the GLA doesn't fit into any category, but matches your life perfectly.

    Exclusive design highlights of the GLA include an underride guard with bucket teeth look, power domes on the bonnet and polar white paintwork. This already sounds exciting. And looks even better.

    Two design lines are available – Urban and AMG. The striking Night package is optionally available. Give free rein to your imagination.

The LED bi-colour tail lamps give the car a striking external appearance and improve visibility.
