Default Mercedes-Benz reveals Edition 1 2015 GLA for Europe

Quote:
Mercedes-Benz revealed a new GLA Edition 1 for the introductory model year. Similarly to what they did with the CLA-Class Edition 1, the new 2015 GLA-Class Edition 1 gets some special treatment to offer some of its first buyers some exclusivity.

Launching in the European market in March of 2014, the Edition 1 GLA features an extensive standard options list. This includes bi-xenon headlights, 19-inch AMG alloy wheels painted in gloss black, a black radiator grille with chrome louver inserts, black-painted side-views, and more gloss black trimming.

The interior gets a bespoke Desert Dust treatment, a sporty three-spoke multifunction steering wheel, aluminum triming, and more. Mercedes’ Light and Sight Package includes single-tone ambient lighting, special lighting for the storage compartments, illuminated doorsills, and other courtesy and warning lights.

Buyers can still choose from a selection of four-cylinder and diesel motors. The gas motors displace 1.6L or 2.0L four-banger with 156hp for the 1.6L-powered GLA 200, and 211hp for the GLA 250’s 2.0L mill. The two diesels consist of the GLA 200 CDI, good for 136hp from a 2.2L mill while the upgraded GLA 220 CDI uses the same motor, increased to 170hp.
As of now, there’s no word on a US-ready Edition 1 GLA.

For more details, check out the press release below.
Exclusive model joins market launch line-up: The Mercedes-Benz GLA to launch with Edition 1 model too



Stuttgart

Oct 25, 2013



Following the successful world premiere of the Mercedes-Benz GLA at the IAA in Frankfurt, many customers are already eagerly anticipating the launch of the new compact SUV from Mercedes-Benz. Now the anticipation is being cranked up a notch to an even higher level. This is because at the time of the market launch in March 2014 there will also be an exclusive Edition 1 variant. It will be available to order from the end of November for approximately one year after market launch.

“With the new GLA we are opening up the compact SUV segment for Mercedes-Benz,” said Ola Källenius, Member of the Divisional Board Mercedes‑Benz Cars Marketing & Sales. “The GLA adds a new emotional variant to the comprehensive SUV range from Mercedes-Benz with which we aim to win over numerous new customers to our brand. Our exclusive Edition 1 is a particularly alluring proposition to boost the market launch.”

The Edition 1 of the GLA impresses with exclusive details both inside and out. The exterior is based on the Urban line with simulated underguard and roof rails in chrome. Further features include bi-xenon headlamps, 19-inch AMG light-alloy wheels finished in high-gloss black, a black radiator grille louvre with chrome inserts, black-painted exterior mirrors, black waistline trim strips and dark-tinted glass starting from the B-pillars. The Edition 1 will be available exclusively in the paint finishes cirrus white, orient brown metallic, mountain grey metallic and designo magno mountain grey (from autumn 2014). The special model is recognisable thanks to the “Edition 1″ lettering on the front wings.
Interior highlights include the DESERT DUST interior with
With its exclusive appointments, the GLA Edition 1 underscores the strengths of the first compact SUV from Mercedes-Benz: progressive in design, serene in day-to-day motoring and with an off-road capability – as a wanderer between automotive worlds, the Mercedes-Benz GLA impressively reinterprets the compact SUV segment. It lightfootedly masters all day-to-day challenges and is also robust enough for off-road excursions.
The first Mercedes-Benz in the fast-growing compact SUV segment is highly manoeuvrable around town (length x width x height: 4417 x 1804 x 1494 mm), lively on country and pass roads and dynamic and efficient on the motorway (Cd figure 0.29).

The GLA is available with the new generation of 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive with fully variable torque distribution as an option.

As a serene day-to-day companion the GLA has a flexible and variable interior. The rear seat backrests can not only be folded down completely, but are also adjustable for angle if required. The large luggage compartment (421 – 1235 litres) is well-presented and can be loaded without difficulty thanks to the low loading sill and the wide tailgate, which opens automatically as an option.
The particularly rigid body structure provides a reliable basis for a wide range of applications. Initially the power range of the 1.6 and 2.0-litre petrol engines will extend from115 kW (156 hp) in the GLA 200 to 155 kW (211 hp) in the GLA 250.
The two diesel engines excel with dynamic torque and outstanding efficiency: The GLA 200 CDI develops 100 kW (136 hp), has a displacement of 2.2 litres and maximum torque of 300 Nm. It emits only 114 g of CO2 per kilometre. The GLA 220 CDI likewise has a displacement of 2.2 litres and develops 125 kW (170 hp) and 350 Nm.

I guess when the GLA 45 AMG comes out it can always be lowered and be sort of what an A45 AMG for the US would be.

You'll pay $40k for a Rabbit...but not $50k for this?
Further proof that one's member number doesn't mean squat.

NO I paid 35 for my rabbit, so what does that do to justify this? At 50k it probably still is not as well equipped.

Yeah, all Subaru needed to do was to bring a hatch STI with 50 more HP, at $50k. Idiots.

Sweet mother of understeer.

Does that awful-sounding engine have a 50lb. flywheel? Clearly, it does NOT like to rev.
