Here is the price list for the new Mercedes Benz GLA.
The LED headlamps and DRLs get minor design tweaks on the new Mercedes Benz GLA. The bumper apron and the wheel arches now match the colour of the car’s body.

Inside, the Mercedes Benz GLA facelift features a new steering wheel for the AMG Line variant. This steering wheel is integrated with touch-based controls. The dashboard has a clean layout design and features a carbon fibre finish on the passenger’s end. The centre console has a storage section and updated switchgear. The 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system on the Mercedes GLA facelift has been carried forward from the outgoing model. It runs the new MBUX software. This means the touchscreen unit now supports wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. New themes have also been incorporated into the digital dial. Underneath the infotainment system lie the AC vents.
Other features include a new 360-degree camera, ambient lighting, twin-pane sunroof, dual-zone climate control, wireless charging, powered front seats, digital key, gesture-controlled tailgate, and more.

The petrol engine produces a maximum power output of 163hp and 270Nm of torque. This engine is mated to a 7-speed DCT gearbox. The diesel engine churns out a maximum power output of 190hp and 400Nm of torque. It is paired with an 8-speed DCT gearbox. The petrol engine is available in a Front Wheel Drive configuration, while the diesel unit is offered with AWD.
