PUNE: Mercedes-Benz India launched another luxurious compact car under its SUV segment, the new GLA at JW Marriot in Juhu, Mumbai on Wednesday.
The car was launched by Michael Jopp, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing of Mercedes-Benz India.
The new GLA has a progressive and sportier with expressive design and revamped safety features.
The SUV is refreshed with dynamic design, powerful appearance and available in three engine variants – GLA 200, GLA 200 d and GLA 220 d 4MATIC.
Speaking on the occasion, Jopp said, “GLA remains a key product in our portfolio. The GLA is an artful delineation of an urban SUV that fulfils the needs and desires of the avid adventurer who likes to arrive in style, wherever they go.”
“The GLA is positioned towards the new generation customers who aspire to own a stylish and dynamic luxury SUV, which perfectly combines practicality with emotive driving experience. GLA has sporty designs, top-notch interiors coupled with class leading performance and uncompromised safety features,” said Jopp.
Jopp also mentioned the driver assistance systems and safety measures crafted in the GLA.
“It has six airbags in the segment. During a collision, the airbags help to protect the head and torso of the driver and front passenger. In addition they stabilize the entire body. This can reduce the risk of severe injuries in an accident. Activation is suited to the severity of the impact,” said Jopp.
Various Driver Assistance Systems, such as Hill start assist, ESP, ASR, BAS are standard on the GLA 220 d 4MATIC.
They will support the driver by stabilizing the car on the difficult, wet and slippery terrain.
