The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA India launch timeline has been revealed. The upcoming GLA will be an entry-level SUV for the brand when launched during October this year, and will feature a host of changes as compared to the older-gen model.
According to TeamBHP, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz is expected to be priced around Rs 43 lakh once launched in India. The second-generation GLA made its India debut at the 2020 Auto Expo, and it was slated to be launched much earlier. However, the launch has been pushed back as all the production was halted due to the on-going Covid-19 outbreak and the subsequent lockdown announced in the country.
The new Mercedes-Benz GLA is expected to be offered with two variants, initially. This includes the ‘220d’ powered by a 2.0-litre diesel engine producing 189bhp, and the ‘200′ variant powered by a 1.3-litre turbo-petrol motor producing 162bhp. The company could consider the all-mighty ‘GLA 35′ AMG variant for the Indian market at a later date.
The new-gen Mercedes-Benz GLA retains its silhouette, but it has grown in size. The next-gen GLA features a more upright stance with bold and muscular looks on the outside. It also features redesigned LED headlamps, tail lamps and a host of other changes as well.
