Mercedes GLA Edition 1Mercedes' New Subcompact Crossover SUV
Next month, Mercedes-Benz plans to release the GLA, the newest addition to the Mercedes line up. The launch of the subcompact SUV crossover will be marked by a limited run Edition 1 model. The GLA, slotted below the GLK aims to join the foray in the subcompact crossover SUV market currently dominated by the Audi Q3 and BMW X1.
The limited run Edition 1 GLA will feature a small but exclusive palette of 5 colours. Each colour is selected to match perfectly with the blacked out mirrors, windows, and headlights. On the inside, the GLA is swathed in brown leather offset by beige fabric inserts and aluminum trim elements. The pedals are replaced with aluminum pedals and the steering wheel also gets a work over with a sporty flat bottom three spoke wheel. Speaking of wheels, the Edition 1 GLA receives black 19 inch AMG alloys. Much like the Edition 1 CLA which launched with the CLA, the GLA Edition 1 will be available next month for a full year. Currently there are no plans to bring the Edition 1 over to Canada.
