With more than a dozen cars launched last year in India, Mercedes Benz does not seem to take a break. The International luxury car maker has revealed their latest facelift GLA 45 at Detroit Auto Show recently and is expected to launch in India soon.

The exterior design is tweaked with a newly designed grille with new chrome inserts, revamped bumpers, circular fog lamps and optional LED lamps replacing the existing bi-xenon headlamps. New alloy wheels have been provided while the GLA facelift has also grown taller by 30mm accentuating the SUV stance. Rear tail lights also appear new with tinted borders.

Under the hood, this new compact SUV gets the same engine for both petrol and diesel while the AMG variant GLA 45 gets a 2L supercharged petrol engine that churns 371bhp and 474.5Nm of torque. The latter sprints from 0-100kmph in 4.4 seconds and its top speed is 250kmph.

As part of the safety features, the GLA 2017 facelift gets a new Active Brake Assist along with the Attention Assist system.

A new top end variant named Yellow Night Edition will be available in a black and yellow dual tone colour scheme with yellow interior highlights as well.
