Mercedes-Benz GLA Edition 1 revealed

The compact Mercedes-Benz GLA will be launched to the market in March 2014 and there will be a more exclusive Edition 1 variant, just like it was done earlier this year with CLA Edition 1.

The GLA Edition 1 will be available to order from the end of November, featuring a number of exclusive details inside and out.

Based on the Urban line, the GLA Edition 1 features roof rails in chrome, bi-xenon headlamps and plenty of blacked out details like 19-inch AMG light-alloy wheels, radiator grille louvre with chrome inserts, exterior mirrors, as well as dark-tinted glass starting from the B-pillars.

The Edition 1 will be available exclusively in cirrus white, orient brown metallic, mountain grey metallic and designo magno mountain grey.

Interior highlights include brown leather seats featuring a beige fabric insert, 3-spoke sports steering wheel, stainless steel sport pedals, aluminium trim and black roof liner.

“With the new GLA we are opening up the compact SUV segment for Mercedes-Benz,” said Ola Källenius, Member of the Divisional Board Mercedes‑Benz Cars Marketing & Sales. “The GLA adds a new emotional variant to the comprehensive SUV range from Mercedes-Benz with which we aim to win over numerous new customers to our brand. Our exclusive Edition 1 is a particularly alluring proposition to boost the market launch.”

The GLA will be launched with 1.6 and 2.0-litre petrol engines, delivering 156bhp in the GLA 200 and 211bhp in the GLA 250.

For diesel fans the GLA 200 CDI develops 136bhp from a 2.2-litre unit and the GLA 220 GDI packs a 170bhp 2.2-litre unit.

Hot GLA 45 AMG is also in development.
