2017 Mercedes GLA Facelift Design & Styling
We’ve always loved the GLA for its modern, clutter-free design that exudes a blend of athleticism and premium-ness. The new 2017 Mercedes GLA facelift is all that and even more! The new GLA 2017 gets even more stylish bumpers, an updated grille and more attractive alloys. The bi-xenon setup on the pre-facelift model has been trashed in favor of a LED setup. This further enhances the upmarket quotient of the GLA. The DRLs looks sleeker and even the LED taillights are new. The new model rides 30 mm higher than the outgoing version, which gives it a really daunting stance.
On the inside, the cabin continues to come with many avant-garde design touches and a long list of comfort and convenience features. There’s a really upmarket eight-inch infotainment unit that takes centre-stage on the dashboard. The instrument binnacle gets a new set of dials. Also, there’s now a chrome garnish on many knobs and buttons. The upholstery is new and is available in four trim options. Another highlight of the features list is the foot-gesture-controlled tailgate.
2017 Mercedes GLA Facelift Safety
Apart from a full quote of airbags, the new 2017 Mercedes GLA facelift also offers ABS, EBD, Active Brake Assist, Attention Assist system, keyless entry and security alarm. Another highlight here is the 360-degree camera with bird’s eye view.
