A new spy shot of the Mercedes-AMG GLA 45 Facelift with minimal camouflage on

Crossovers are adding small tweaks.

years before a replacement is introduced.

The fascia at the front is obscured by camouflage foil, preventing us from seeing the bumper’s final design. However, prior spy images have revealed that the headlights will undergo a small change and that the bumper will have air holes with a new shape. Given that the GLA 45 requires more air for the engine and brakes, these will be different from those found on the GLA 35.

The taillights are covered, although there isn’t much camouflage there. This probably implies that they could change their internal graphics. The quad exhaust pipe configuration won’t change for the facelifted model because we don’t anticipate any other aesthetic changes at the back.

Updates for GLA-Class:

There won’t be many alterations within the cabin either. All GLA variants will reportedly come with a redesigned steering wheel, and the company’s MBUX infotainment system may also receive an update.

The 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that powers the GLA 45’s most potent model now produces 369 pound-feet (500 Newton-meters) of torque and 416 horsepower (310 kilowatts) at its maximum output. Although there may be minor changes to the engine tuning to make the mill feel more energetic, these statistics are probably going to stay the same for the revised model. An eight-speed automatic transmission distributes the power to all four wheels.
