It is now time for the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class crossover to receive the company’s typical “Edition 1” treatment, with the automaker officially introducing the development. It's what happens every time a new model comes out, and they will only sell it for one year.
While you do get the extra kit, the stuff under the bonnet stays the same. It's already gone on sale in Germany from €29,303, for which receive the basic GLA 200 model. This comes with a 1.6-liter turbocharged petrol engine rated at 156 horsepower.

Also available is the GLA 250, which costs €35,285 and is motivated by a 2-liter turbo sending 211 PS to the front wheels. An all-wheel drive version of the same car will set you back €37,497.

Diesels are also available, of course. The basic one is the GLA 200 CDI, which uses a 136 horsepower version of the familiar 2.1-liter engine. With FWD, this costs €32,130, while 4Matic increases the price to €36,509.

The package includes 19-inch AMG wheels in a black finish, bi-xenon headlights, chrome details and aluminum roof bars. Climbing aboard, we find comfort seats, brushed stainless steel pedals, a sports steering wheel, as well as aluminum trim.

The GLA Edition 1 allows owners to choose between four exterior shades, including Cirrus White, Mountain Grey Metallic, Orient Brown Metallic and Designo Magno Mountingrau.

On the inside, the GLA Edition 1 features a Desert Dust color scheme with seats covered in nut brown leather and Alvorada fabric. Also included are a 3-spoke multifunction sports steering wheel and brushed stainless steel pedals.
