Mercedes GLA Diesel Gets More Power And All-Wheel Drive

The 2.1-litre diesel engine now produces an extra 34bhp and 50Nm of torque and sends the power to all-four wheels.

 

Mercedes India has given the diesel powered GLA crossover SUV some extra oomph, all-wheel drive hardware and also a few extra features. The new variant has been badged ‘GLA 220 d’ and is available in a single ‘Activity Edition’ trim for INR 38.51 lakhs (ex-showroom, Pune).

 

The 2.1-litre diesel in the GLA 220 d has been pumped up to produce 168bhp and generate 350Nm of torque, which is 34bhp and 50Nm more than what is produced by the engine in the GLA 200 d. The engine is coupled to a 7-speed automatic gearbox which sends the power to all the four wheels through Mercedes’s 4Matic all-wheel drive hardware instead of just the front-wheels. The result is a 0-100 km/h sprint time of just 7.7 seconds.

 

The new 18-inch alloy wheel design, Activity Edition badges, black decals on the doors, chrome trim in the rocker panel and a new Mountain Grey colour option distinguish the GLA 220 d 4Matic Activity Edition from the GLA 200 d on the outside. On the inside there is a larger 8-inch media display with smartphone integration (Apple CarPlay & Android Auto), Activity Edition floor mats, electric tailgate, 12V power socket in the boot area, rear-seat adjustable by 15-degree to generate 60-litre more boot space, keyless entry with push button start/stop, etc.

 

Other features available on the GLA 220 d include rain sensing wipers, adaptive brake with hill hold function, reversing camera with dynamic guidelines, six airbags, etc.

 

With the introduction of the 4Matic system and also more power, the GLA can now compete with the Audi Q3 quattro and the BMW X1 xDrive models.
