The Mercedes Benz 2021 new model wears an evolutionary design and sports a bunch of variations from its predecessor. The Mercedes Benz GLA Class visibly looks a lot more butch thanks to its more upright stance and newly sculpted lines on the bonnet and along with the side profile. This translates to its jacked-up dimensions as the latest iteration of the compact crossover 104mm taller and 30mm wider.
Updated Exterior Design
In terms of its appearance, the second generation of the GLA SUV looks considerably different from the model it replaces. The exterior styling has smoother and more flowing lines than the older model, while still having a rugged design – with its black cladding going all around the SUV. Overall, the new GLA clearly looks larger and more substantial than the previous-gen car. However, it is not just visually larger as the new GLA is 104 mm taller and has a 30mm longer wheelbase than the previous generation. This has resulted in more interior space, especially at the rear – something the previous model lacked.
However, the overall length has been shortening by 14mm. Overall, the new 2021 Mercedes Benz GLA class measures 4410mm in length and offers a wheelbase of 2,729mm, an increase of 30mm. In terms of design, the latest iteration of the crossover takes inspiration from larger Merc SUVs such as GLC and GLE.
This includes a signature diamond-stud pattern grille with the Mercedes star and a chrome slat at the center. The front grille is flank by sweptback multibeam LED headlamps with integrated LED DRLs.
The side profile, it receives thick body claddings and standard 17-inch or 18-inch alloy wheels with the option for larger 19-inch alloys. Moving towards the rear, it gets redesigned LED taillamps, a roof-mounted spoiler and a sculpted boot lid. Other design updates include beefed-up front and rear bumpers with silver inserts on each of them and a twin exhaust setup.
