The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA is coming to the Detroit Motor Show 2017. The North American International Show in Detroit is gaining huge traction. The event deserves the attention it is getting due to the massive reveals that the show will unveil.

The Mercedes-Benz GLA first launched in 2013. The first model did not arrive in the United States until the following year. In 2014, US buyers got their hands on the GLA 2015 model.

The car company had a huge success with the model. As 2017 opens up, the GLA needs a mid-cycle update. Mercedes-Benz did not disappoint the consumers and gave the model the update it needs.

The car company confirmed that they had performed a major face-lift on the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA. The teaser for the car revealed minor tweaks have been made. The prototype seen in the company’s headquarters in Germany indicated some minor tweaks on the GLA model.

The spotted prototype’s lights and bumpers have covers on it. Experts believe that the tweaks or face-lift could possibly be done on the covered parts. 

If the covered parts are the only changes, it would mean that the company did not do any major update. From 2013 until now, GLA’s design remains to be the best-looking car in its own right. Whether they gave it a huge face-lift or not, the model remains to have the freshest look in the market.

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA Specifications

The teaser for the face-lifted GLA revealed that it has some redesigned fog lights. It has fresh new bumper. Consumers and experts are hopeful that the 2018 GLA will have a new technology for the headlights.

The consumers might also see a new design at the back part of the GLA. The new GLA might come with a newly-designed rear bumper and subtly modified taillight design. 

The public expects various exterior modifications with new alloy wheel options and body shades. Carscoops reported that there will be some tweaks on the interior of the car. These includes the the cabin and infotainment system.

Handi Tech reported that there are no expectations on a new power train front. The GLA will most likely have the US-spec model. The model might also have the 375-hp handcrafted AMG 2.0 liter or the 208-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter engine. The price point for the GLA starts from $35,000 USD.
