The future model 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class will be refreshed in so many ways. This subcompact crossover model was revealed at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show this week. Everything on this model will be improved, and we can expect updates for all models including GLA250, AMG GLA45, and GLA250 4Matic. As we know, this model was introduced back in 2013, and in 2016 we saw some interior updates. However, a model for 2018 will receive updates in every segment, not only in the cabin. That means that we can expect slight improvements when it comes to engine, but also modifications from the outside as well as the addition of some new high tech features.
When it comes to the details, we can notice improvements in the front bumper. It will be more elegant and more massive this time. Also, the same changes we can expect with the rear bumper. The fog lights are now moved out to the corners, while the GLA45 model will provide a more horizontal look of the front fascia. The AMG model also gets a brand new diffuser inserts and also a lip for the hatch-mounted spoiler. Instead of the previous bi-xenon units, there will be LED headlights.
The model GLA250 will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with the max power output of 208-horsepower. Also, this engine will have the front-wheel drive as standard as well as a 4Matic all-wheel-drive as an option. The GLA45 will have just like as before, the same engine as GLA250 but with significantly more power – 375 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. Furthermore, this engine will provide the 4Matic all-wheel-drive type. Thanks to the seven-speed dual clutch transmission, we can expect 0 to 60 mph sprint of 4.3 seconds.
Modifications in the Interior:
Inside, this model will also receive some redesigns. However, considering the fact that we already saw interior refreshment for 2016 model, now we will see only some minor changes. For example, there will be new cover materials for the seats in the GLA250 model. Also, we can expect some chrome materials around the control panel. The center console will receive some modifications, but nothing too much notable. Also, the gauge cluster will be redesigned and it will have a different typeface. Unlike before, the 8.0-inch touchscreen display will be now standard for all models. It will be available with the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The new model comes with rear view camera as standard, while the Parking Assist Package will include surround-view camera system with multiple views.
