Mercedes-Benz GLA 180 Review
Uplifted Appeal

A new front grille and lower bumper lip design, reworked headlamp cluster, new 18-inch rims and tail light redesign

Mercedes-Benz probably has the largest SUV line-up available, from a singular car brand. The GLA to buyers is their foot through the door for those who want to shell out their hard-earned monies, to join the three-pointed star club.

Just recently getting some freshening up, we thought it would be worth a look again, at why the A Class Mercedes range, and in this case, the GLA would make such an attractive ride in SUV/Crossover mad Singapore.

Our base GLA 180 would set you back around $160+k, inclusive of COE. For this, you get a milder 1.6 litre turbocharged engine. The range is topped by the high-powered AMG badged GLA 45, which benefits from their 4MATIC transmission, and does a cool 4.4 second century sprint.

A new front grille and lower bumper lip design, reworked headlamp cluster, new 18-inch rims and tail light redesign are just the bits that have been freshened up.

While it is no secret that the GLA shares much of its technological architecture with Infiniti’s Q30, there are enough differences in both cars to make each car its own.
