Mercedes-Benz Gives the 2016 GLA Class Some Small Updates
All of the changes are inside and begins with the infotainment system. Mercedes has swapped the 5.8-screen for a new 7-inch display. It features a new media interface, HD Voice compatibility for hands-free calls, and is pre-wired for a Garmin navigation system. The standard equipment list sees a nice boost with the addition dual-zone climate control, keyless ignition, and seat cushion adjustment.
Engine choices remain unchanged for the 2016 model year. The base GLA250 come with a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder with 208 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The Mercedes-AMG GLA45 comes with a reworked turbo 2.0L with 355 horsepower and 332 pound-feet.
Wait, the GLA is the second oldest model in the Mercedes-Benz utility lineup?
Yes and the reason for that is Mercedes has been introducing redesigned and updated models since the GLA was launched in 2014. First we had the GLE-Class (replacement for the midsize M-Class) and the GLE Coupe. This was followed by the GLC-Class (replacement for the GLK-Class) and the GLS-Class (replacement for the GL-Class).
