The Mercedes-Benz GLA200 Sport is the answer to the compact SUV segment – a grey colored window still, wood rails partnered with body-colored door handles.
Pairing its aesthetics with practicality, the outside rearview mirrors are integrated with LED side turn indicators and are electrically adjustable.
Having 18-inch light-alloy wheels painted in Vanadium Silver, it suits perfectly with the neatly crafted wheel arches with cladding.
Furthermore, its rims are fully covered with tubeless radial tyres of size 235/50 R18 that are really high-performing types.
While its rear end still shows class with its dual-tone bumper accompanied by a couple of chrome-plated exhaust pipes and an expressive boot lid embossed with variant badging and fitted with a thick chrome strip.
Topped off with a sporty rear spoiler with LED high mounted stop lamp and wrap around LED tail light cluster.
Technology and Comfort Features
The Mercedes-Benz GLA200 Sport offers an SUV stance and driving position with generous rear room and boot space.
It is incorporated with the best and advanced features, giving the owners an excellent driving experience.
This includes a multifunction control leather steering wheel and an efficient air conditioning unit that filters out dust and pollen.
The touchscreen display supports GPS and navigation and other car tools like the music system with CD/MP3 player, dual tuner, USB interface, Aux-in socket, and Bluetooth connectivity.
It is also worth bragging about its safety features, such as the cruise control, rear parking sensors, and the reverse camera, speed-sensitive volume control.
Additionally, it features an ECO start/stop function for easy access and engine ignition.
The boot lighting, panoramic sliding sunroof, all four power windows with driver-side up and down function, and storage compartment in all doors complete the entire interior’s practicality.
Engine and Performance
Propelled from a 2.0 litre, in-line petrol engine, 200 Sport gets a 7G-DCT automatic gearbox, Mercedes-Benz GLA200 Sport also pioneers as the first and only petrol variant offered by the SUV clan.
The 7-speed 7G-DCT gearbox ensures that the 181 hp and 300 Nm on tap are efficiently transferred to the front wheels.
Based on the same platform as the A-Class hatchback and CLA-Class Coupe, and with the off-road comfort suspension system, this Mercedes-Benz GLA200 Sport SUV is up to the task of the occasional jaunt away from the asphalt.
