The 2021 Mercedes GLA will be refreshed for the upcoming season. Besides the standard GLA 250 version, the carmaker is enhancing its popular AMG performance-oriented crossover. This is the best-selling subcompact model in this class. After the update, we believe the mini SUV will cement its #1 place in the market.
According to the first details, the vehicle will offer a sportier ride. Well, there are small changes in the body, including a 0.6 inch shorter body, and the roof is also higher. The highlight is the performance of the 2021 Mercedes GLA AMG 35. This crossover will reach 300 horsepower, making it way ahead of the main competition. Still, the German carmaker will have to do something with competitors that will launch electric vehicles in 2021.
