AMG GLA 35 4MATIC and GLA 45 4MATIC+
The most powerful 4-cylinder in production has grown more powerful. And its 382 hp propels an all-new GLA 45 that's grown more capable, advanced, and appealing. It's also grown a new sibling: the equally advanced and appealing 302-hp GLA 35 SUV.
A race that knows no finish line.
In an old mill in 1967, two engineers with a passion for motorsports began turning Mercedes-Benz sedans into winning racecars. Today, AMG continues to create victory on the track and desire on the streets of the world. Every Mercedes-AMG vehicle is the product of craftsmen, designers, engineers and racers who live for a singular goal: Driving Performance.
Born to perform, developed to outperform
A Mercedes-AMG engine starts with the state of the art. Everything from fuel pressure to exhaust routing is developed to quicken, heighten and intensify its response, and yours. From patented processes to cut friction to a new generation of electrified performance, AMG technology is fueled by its racing success.
More powerful choices
Two 2.0L twin-scroll turbo engines let you have your AMG GLA in two strengths: mighty or almighty. The 302-hp GLA 35 can sprint to 100 in 4.9 seconds. A handcrafted 382-hp engine, the most powerful 4-cylinder in production, catapults the GLA 45 to 100 in just 4.1 seconds. Disclaimer
More urgent response
The dual-clutch AMG SPEEDSHIFT 8-speed can change gears more quickly than a human. Along with a range of modes and paddle shifts, the GLA 45 adds a RACE START function. Rev-matched downshifts and partial ignition cutoff during upshifts benefit response, feel and sound.
More precise footwork
AMG Performance 4MATIC computes driving inputs, speed and g-forces so its electromechanical clutch packs can send torque to the tires that can use it best. Rear-axle torque-vectoring further sharpens the GLA 45's AMG Performance 4MATIC+. Disclaimer
Grab and go
AMG racing know-how turns torrential power and torque into grip and control. Advanced all-wheel drive and precisely tuned chassis systems team up to deliver agile response, crisp feedback and a serious capability to deliver the fun.
Flexibility from rigidity
The double-wishbone front/multilink rear suspension combines rigidity, versatility and lightness. Standard 3-stage AMG RIDE CONTROL can adapt each wheel's damping in milliseconds.
Modes for your driving moods
AMG DYNAMIC SELECT lets you fine-tune performance settings via a console button. Modes range from Slippery to Sport+, plus an Individual setup, as well as RACE on the GLA 45. The available AMG DRIVE UNIT adds drive-mode controls with color displays to the steering wheel. Disclaimer Disclaimer
Clamp like a champ
Racing-bred AMG high-performance brakes feature silver (GLA 35) or grey (GLA 45) 4-piston front calipers clamping 350mm perforated discs. The AMG Track Package upsizes the GLA 45 to 360-inch front discs and red 6-piston calipers. Disclaimer
Driving, and driver, embraced
The digital cockpit's vivid displays, touch controls, intelligent voice assistant, and ergonomic controls intensify the bond of driver and vehicle. Power sport front seats or available AMG Performance seats support your driving moves.
The flat-bottom AMG Performance steering wheel features Touch Control Buttons, shift paddles and Nappa leather trim. It's also available in grippy DINAMICA microsuede, or a combo. You can adjust the 64-colour ambient lighting to suit your mood.
Dual 10.25-inch digital displays include a central multimedia touchscreen and reconfigurable AMG instruments, readouts and menus. An available Head-Up Display projects key driving information closer to your natural line of sight. Disclaimer
Flair for the air
Two styling options make the bold GLA attitude even bolder. The AMG Night Package adds gloss black elements. And an Aerodynamics Package slices the wind with functional flics and a prominent rear wing.
