Revolutionary changes in the exterior design are not expected, but it will become more strict and sporty. The 2019 Mercedes GLA will get full LED lighting equipment.

The SUV will be based on a front-drive platform MFA2. It is a substantially revised version of the modern MFA. The new GLA will increase in size a little and get a more spacious cabin.

The powertrain is expected to have the latest 2.0-liter diesel engines, in the development of which the Germans have invested 2.5 billion euros. The MFA2 platform allows to use a hybrid unit.

The crossover will be equipped with a semi-autonomous control system, a new version of the COMAND infotainment system and the whole package of active safety systems.
