Mercedes-Benz GLA (2020): The Design

New Mercedes-Benz GLA

More GLA than ever before.

Dynamic proportions make the GLA compact and functional nonetheless. As a compact SUV, it fits in nearly any open space and yet has room for your entire life.

The progressive design gives the compact SUV dynamism and elegance, further boosted by the emphasis on surfaces.

The interior of the GLA combines a sense of space, high-tech features and sportiness. The design sets standards with a flowing, modern design idiom. Special touches: the free-standing Widescreen Cockpit and the illuminated air vents with sporty, progressive styling.
