UK pricing and specification details for the Mercedes GLA 35 4Matic have been revealed, with the car available to order now for deliveries in late summer.
The Mercedes-AMG-tuned performance model, which sits underneath the flagship Mercedes-AMG GLA 45, is priced from £43,565. That's over £14,000 less than the cheapest GLA 45, although the 35's price rises depending on spec as the Premium and Premium plus equipment lines command a further £2,500 and £3,500 respectively.
The GLA35 uses a 302bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, putting out 295lb ft of torque, combined with an all-wheel drive system to enable a 0-62mph tim of 5.1sec and a top speed of 155mph. Fuel economy is quoted at up to 34.5mpg combined, with CO2 emissions as low as 186g/km depending on spec.
Standard versions of the Mercedes GLA compact SUV are available from £32,640 in entry-level Sport trim, which can be specified with a 161bhp turbocharged 1.3-litre four-cylinder petrol engine or, for an additional £1100, a 2.0-litre diesel that puts out 148bhp.
Standard equipment at this price point includes 18in alloy wheels, heated front seats, a 7.0in infotainment touchscreen and dual-zone air conditioning.
Prices climb to £34,140 for Sport Executive trim, which brings front and rear parking sensors alongside upgraded interior technology, and rise through three grades of AMG Line trim to top-spec AMG Line Premium Plus, which starts at £38,640. Engine options available towards the top of the range include a 187bhp four-cylinder diesel and a turbocharged petrol unit with 221bhp.
Prices for the hot AMG GLA 45 and new GLA 250e plug-in hybrid are yet to be announced.
