Mercedes is also at the North American International Auto Show and they've just unveiled a Mercedes-Benz GLA facelift.

The new Mercedes GLA comes with subtle design changes that make it look sharper and more refined. Customers ordering this new model will also get improved standard equipment. The changes include redesigned front and rear bumpers, a new colour choice and brand-new alloys.

You can now choose from updated upholstery options as well as a new surround view camera that gives the driver a 360 degree birds eye view of the car. The new interior has a nicer instrument cluster, but the touchscreen options are the same as in the previous model. It’s still a welcome change having a redesigned interior in this car as it helps to improve the luxurious feel of the GLA.

Although a new engine was announced, it won’t be available in the UK.”

The new Mercedes GLA also has 30mm more ground clearance thanks to some suspension adjustments giving the car better ground clearance. Although a new engine was announced at the NAIAS, it won’t be available in the UK, so we still get the same engines that were available on the last generation car.

The Mercedes GLA facelift is expected to be available in April, and we'll have prices as soon as they're available.
