2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class is almost ready to roll out, it seems, and it doesn’t look like we’ll see any major changes this year. The luxury model underwent major changes for the 2016 model year. According to spy shots, it seems that the mid-cycle update won’t be anything to scoff at, but it isn’t anything too different from the previous model, either.
Spy shots indicate that the most notable change in the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class will come in the headlights and taillights. Both lights are blacked out, which probably means there will be some styling changes. That’s the only major change, but it will make a nice touch to the crossover’s fresh design.
As for performance, it doesn’t look like we’ll be seeing any major changes their either. The GLA 45 AMG® model saw a power increase of 20 hp last year, while the standard GLA kept its 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 208 hp.
Like last year, buyers have the option to choose between all-wheel drive and front-wheel drive. A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is the only option this time around. Despite the lack of changes, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class seems to be staying the course as one of the best-looking, most popular models in the luxury crossover segment.
