for the exterior, the GLA45 AMG features an upright front end with an upgraded aerodynamics package; larger front splitter and rear spoiler with a twin-louver grille that accentuates the vehicle’s wide, but raised vehicle body and muscular large wheel arches.

the sports car is conceived with divided LED tail lights and the rear axle is emphasized by the inward taper of the C-pillars, which joins from the gradual belt-line trim from the rear doors and contoured side profile.

inside, the cockpit receives a combination of high-grade materials such as performance seats upholstered in leather and carbon-fiber trim surfaces.

  • As a fan of wagons and CUVs, I like to see MB entering the segment, but I prefer they throw us a bone in the form of a small diesel vs. something more suited for Saudi teenagers.
