The company will also launch special-edition versions under Mercedes-Benz’s 'designo' personalisation platform. These cars will be called Aero Editions, and you can customise the cars according to your preferences.
The performance-oriented four-door coupe and SUV get a new black finish, include decals on the doors, and features a sporty yellow strip running on the front and rear bumpers, the sides, on the outside rear view mirrors and the blacked-out alloy wheels. The GLA will feature a boot-mounted spoiler with yellow touches as well.
Both cars get a new 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a 360-degree camera. You can expect similar touches of yellow inside the cabin, along with special-edition badges for the Aero Edition models. The CLA 45 and GLA 45 share the same 1,991cc, four-cylinder, turbo-petrol mill that produces 381hp and 475Nm, and this engine will continue to feature in the updated cars. The motor is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Expect the cars to be priced at a slight premium over the previous cars.
