The new Mercedes-AMG GLA 45 4MATIC.
Intelligent aerodynamic measures.
With intelligent aerodynamic measures like the restyled front apron and the spoiler lip on the roof spoiler it was possible to increase driving dynamics and driving stability, yet wind resistance was simultaneously reduced. Despite the sportily configured lift balance, the cd value of 0.33 is lower than on the preceding model. The characteristic distinguishing feature of the new Mercedes-AMG GLA 45 4MATIC is the sharpened front section. The front apron was given an even more dynamic shape, new air intake grilles, a front splitter insert in silver chrome plus flics in high-gloss black.
LED headlamps as standard.
Some earlier optional extras like the LED High Performance headlamps are now part of the standard host of equipment. The twin louvre on the AMG Twin Blade radiator grille is now in silver chrome, as are the inserts in the side sill panels. As an additional option a multi-spoke 20-inch light-alloy wheel is available for selection in two colour variants: painted matt black with high-sheen rim flange or painted titanium grey with a high-sheen finish.
Fine interior with exclusive touches.
The interior has been similarly upgraded. The dashboard is covered as standard with ARTICO man-made leather and has been given exclusive highlights with red contrasting topstitching. The instrument cluster has been given a new number design and the speedometer is divided into 30 km/h stages. New needles with a black needle centre and the chrome frame around the gear display also ensure an autonomous cockpit experience.
A further highlight is the generously sized trim, extending over virtually the entire width of the car: its fundamental structure is printed matt with a high-gloss surface and it bears AMG lettering. It is available in black/red (standard) or in black/silver (in conjunction with the Exclusive package). The vehicle key and the E-Select lever now bear the AMG emblem as standard.
Extremely agile 2.0-litre turbo engine.
With a maximum output of 280 kW (381 PS) and 475 Nm maximum torque the Mercedes-AMG GLA 45 4MATIC is among the most powerful cars in its segment. The extremely agile 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine blends its thrilling performance and the exemplary efficiency with a further best: the power-to-swept-volume ratio of 141 kW (191 PS) marks a record for a series engine with four cylinders.
On the road the turbocharged AMG 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine thrills with extremely fast responses to accelerator movements, high torque, enormous flexibility and an emotional engine note. In conjunction with the AMG DYNAMIC PLUS package (optional extra), the mechanical front axle locking differential is available. This package also includes the AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension, the performance steering wheel and the additional drive programme “RACE”.
Shorter ratios: AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT.
The agile and dynamic power transfer is assisted by the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission. Thanks to the shorter ratios selected in gears three to seven the driver senses an even more emotively appealing acceleration experience in all speed ranges. Together with optimised response and shift times, the closer ratio spread ensures better transitions when upshifting.
Best traction as standard.
For optimum traction even in poor road surface conditions, the standard all-wheel drive AMG performance 4MATIC transfers the drive power to all wheels. The torque is steplessly variably distributed to the front and rear axle. This configuration results in an optimum ratio of dynamism, efficiency and traction to match the driving situation. A multiple-disc clutch integrated in the rear axle differential with AMG-specific control passes on the engine torque to the rear wheels in a flash should the front wheels lose traction. The spectrum ranges from purely front-wheel drive to the ratio of 50 to 50 percent to the front and rear wheels.
Yellow Night Edition.
The special model is painted exclusively in night black or cosmos black and with its unique combination of matt graphite grey and yellow appliqué sections it is immediately identifiable. The exclusive impression is underscored by the light-alloy wheels in matt black with yellow rim flanges and the black painted AMG twin louvre in the radiator grille.
Yellow highlights characterise the front apron, the exterior mirror housings, the inserts in the side skirts, the rear diffuser and the rear wing. The special character is additionally emphasised by the AMG sports stripes in matt graphite grey (foiled) on the bonnet, roof, boot lid and sides of the car.
Interior with yellow highlights.
The interior is also characterised by the extensive appointments and yellow touches. The AMG performance seats in ARTICO man-made leather/DINAMICA microfibre also sport yellow trim, as do the AMG performance sports steering wheel in DINAMICA, the rear bench seat, the dashboard and the armrest. Further highlights include the door sill panels in graphite grey with a yellow AMG logo, the floor mats with yellow edging, the AMG logo also in yellow, plus the yellow air outlets.
The extensive standard equipment of the Yellow Night Edition includes the Aerodynamics package, the Night package, the Light and Sight package, the performance seats with a memory function plus the AMG performance steering wheel in black DINAMICA microfibre with a yellow 12 o’clock mark in nappa leather, steering wheel trim in silver chrome with an “AMG Edition” badge and yellow contrasting topstitching.
