Perhaps the best way to describe the new 2024 GLA is to say that it’s more “GLA” than ever.
All the things that made the compact SUV unique have been elevated and enhanced. Sportiness, agility, versatility, pure intelligence: each raised to the next degree and signaled with a refreshed, modern design. From redefined grille to (now standard) LED headlamps, the new GLA finds its essence. Inside, the cabin makes room for two 10.25-inch media displays — also equipped standard — that anchor the open-plan architecture. Tapping into the latest generation of the MBUX operating system, the driver display features three distinct styles: “Classic” for all relevant driver information, “Sporty” with its dynamic tachometer and “Discreet,” showing only the essentials.
MBUX takes things even further with its most intuitive updates yet. It’s now even better at understanding conversation and learning from driver preferences. It monitors favorite settings, functions, and routes and suggests the right features to enhance each driving situation. Equipped with the optional Burmester® surround sound systemDisclaimer, MBUX also enables a Dolby Atmos® audio experienceDisclaimer, immersing drivers in a rich sonic environment.
Under the hood, the new GLA welcomes a 48-volt on-board power supply to enhance agility with a boost of 13 horsepower. Thanks to this mild hybrid powertrain, the SUV can “coast” while the combustion engine rests and recuperate energy during braking and acceleration. What that really means is that the GLA is more nimble, more responsive and more purely fun to drive than ever.
The 2024 GLA arrives at your dealership later this year.
