Folks! We will get the Mercedes GLA with 1 petrol and 2 diesel engine variants in India.

Motorbeam reports that the India-bound compact premium crossover would be available in two variants with three engine options, two of which will burn the cheaper fuel.

Folks, any idea if the 4Matic variant would be available for the GLA? I'm thinking of booking one in a couple of weeks.

They're definitely launching the 200/220 CDI from what Hormazd tweeted a few days ago. The only petrol option is the 250 ~If they offer the 4Matic option for the 220 & 250 like they do in the other markets then *THAT* is the model to get.
Doubtful about them launching the 45AMG though~ Could that undercut the CLA45 as the cheapest AMG?

Overdrive have gone on the record with the engine options. Looks like we're getting the 250 Petrol engine & the 220 CDI but no 4Matic options for either. Not clear if either will be getting the 7G-DCT gearbox

Quote:
The GLA will come with two engine choices. One is a 1.6-litre turbopetrol which makes 155PS and 250Nm of torque. The second, a diesel is the four cylinder 2.2l motor which produces 135PS and 300Nm. Both the engines come mated to a 7-speed automatic. Mercedes will be bringing in the GLA to India via the CBU route.

I have been invited by Joshi Autozone, Chandigarh for an "exclusive preview" of the GLA on the 20th of this month.

MB is doing this all across the country apparently.

By the photos posted above the GLA looks puny! My B looks have to more ground clearance than this!! Anyways I will keep the forum updated after attending the preview event. Hopefully they will have an A inside the showroom too, to get a better sense of size and dimensions.

I got this invite for a special preview for the GLA on whatsapp from the Mercedes sales lady. She also mentioned that the booking amount is only INR 200,000!

There is also a brilliant video she shared which I am not sure how to upload using the mobile teambhp app

Looks like the initial lots of GLAs will be CBUs.

3 versions are being bought in as CBU - GLA 200, GLA 200 CDI & GLA 45 AMG.

Based on these declared values, what's the expected price of the GLA45AMG?

And when is the non-AMG 4matic GLA expected to be launched?
