As Autocar reports, the compact crossover Mercedes GLA of the second generation is preparing for a planned update. Test variants of the car have already appeared on the test site.

Judging by the small amount of masking film, only small changes should take place – a kind of “standard program” of facelifting: front bumper and radiator grille, headlights and lights, design of the trunk lid. Thus, the visually updated Mercedes GLA crossover should be closer to the new Mercedes C-class and Mercedes GLC.

The rest of the updates are only at the level of expectations and hints. For example, the new central console and the branded “shell” of the MBUX system. Or improving the characteristics of engines and increasing the autonomy of hybrids. To what extent are these expectations met? We will be able to find out as soon as 2023 when the new Mercedes GLA car is scheduled to appear.
