Perceptible clarity as an expression of modern luxury – that is the design philosophy of Mercedes-Benz. As an SUV the GLA moves between the poles of two core design values: progression and tradition. It is an all-rounder, has SUV genes – and is youthful yet sculpturally pleasant at the same time. The low greenhouse, the higher vehicle body and the large wheel cutouts exude a strong power of attraction. Sharp lines lend definition and precision. The confidently upright front with a central star gives the GLA a competent expression which is intensified by the characteristic look of the headlamps. From a side view, the GLA also embodies power and competence. In contrast to previous SUVs, the GLA is not as bulky and its entry is not as high. As a result it is perfect for the everyday routine of urban people.
