The fiercest edition of Mercedes GLA-Class luxury crossover SUV, the GLA45 AMG combines hot hatch performance with the raised seating position, stability and loadspace of an SUV.
A luxurious cabin and abundance of driver-convenience technology are, of course, standard.
The GLA45 AMG is ready to be discovered at your nearest Jardine Mercedes-Benz dealership today.
With its raised platform, the GLA45 AMG boasts an impressive amount of height. Combined with the monolithic front profile, with its huge chrome grille and muscular wheel arches, this vehicle exudes dominance on the road. Sculpted side panels and powerful haunches suggest its performance potential, along with the bi-xenon headlights, 19” 5-twin-spoke alloy wheels with red brake callipers. A sumptuous cockpit provides heated AMG performance seats in artico leather, as well as a sports steering wheel in nappa leather. Dual-zone climate control keeps the occupants comfortable at all times, whilst the boot capacity of 421 litres can be extended to 1,235 litres.
The GLA45 AMG is good value for its five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP, with its 4MATIC four-wheel drive delivering an extremely stable platform in all weathers and on every type of road surface.
A powerful, but never intrusive, Electronic Stability Programme provides extra grip and traction when it is most needed.
The manufacturer’s Pre-Safe system tenses the seatbelts, shuts the windows and optimises your seating position if it senses that an accident may be about to take place.
Attention Assist, moreover, sounds an audible warning if it senses that the driver is fatigued or not concentrating sufficiently.
If a collision does occur, occupants are shielded from harm by dual-stage driver, passenger, side and driver’s knee airbags.
Collision Prevention Assist Plus, which warns the driver when they are too close to another vehicle, is available as an option.
The GLA45 AMG owes its astonishing performance to a 2.0 litre petrol engine with 360hp and 450Nm of torque between 2250-5000rpm.
A blisteringly fast crossover, it can achieve 0-62mph acceleration in just 4.8 seconds, as well as an electronically-limited top speed of 155mph.
Combined fuel consumption of 37.7mpg and carbon emissions of 175g/km are also impressive for a model offering such speed and dynamism.
An AMG Speedshift DCT seven-speed sports transmission delivers smooth upshifts for optimum response.
A trusty Comand Online multimedia system supplies a wide range of communication and navigation functions, and allows smartphone users to connect to the internet.
The device is simply and easily controlled, either through its touchscreen interface or Linguatronic voice control. The Harmon Kardon® Logic 7® surround sound system, meanwhile, provides crystal-clear acoustics.
