The facelift Mercedes-Benz GLA will be launched in India tomorrow i.e. 5 July, 2017. The German crossover will carry superficial changes however the mechanicals are expected to be the same as the outgoing model.

The new GLA was unveiled internationally at the Detroit motor show back in January 2017. The new GLA takes its styling bits from the Mercedes-Benz family design. The new car wears a tweaked bumper, a restyled grille and the headlamps get the LED treatment as standard - which was an optional feature in the previous generation model. The side profile carries the similar silhouette however the new car gets gloss black touches on the B-pillar and the wing mirrors. The 2017 GLA sits on newly designed alloy wheels. The rear of the car gets a restyled bumper and a refresh wrap around tail lamp design.

Inside the cabin the new car houses a restyled instrument cluster however the steering wheel is a carryover from the previous model with tweaks in the steering mounted controls. As its predecessor, the 2017 GLA carries the same eight-inch infotainment system and the dashboard gets an aluminium finish with the iconic Jet Turbine ducts right below the screen.

The updated GLA will be sourcing its power from same engines as the pre-facelift model, 2.1-litre turbocharged diesel and a 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel. The former produces 136bhp and the latter produces 183bhp. The pre-facelift GLA gets the German manufacturer’s ‘4matic’ all-wheel drive layout in the variant dubbed as the ‘Activity-Edition’ however the ‘4matic’ is expected to be on offer in the top trims in the 2017 GLA. The new GLA sits 30mm higher and offers more ground clearance than the pre-facelift model.

The AMG treated GLA 45 which is on offer in the Indian market right now is also anticipated to get the fresh styling bits, though the GLA 45 AMG is expected to be unveiled sometime later.

The prices of the German crossover are expected to range from Rs. 31 lakhs to Rs. 35 lakhs. Post its launch scheduled for tomorrow, the 2017 GLA will continue to rival with the Mini Clubman, Audi Q3 and the BMW X1.
