Following its world premiere at the IAA in Frankfurt, the GLA, the carmaker has announced that when it comes to market in March 2014 there will also be an exclusive Edition 1 variant.

It will be available to order from the end of November for approximately one year after market launch.

“With the new GLA we are opening up the compact SUV segment for Mercedes-Benz,” said Ola Källenius, Member of the Divisional Board Mercedes‑Benz Cars Marketing & Sales. “The GLA adds a new emotional variant to the comprehensive SUV range from Mercedes-Benz with which we aim to win over numerous new customers to our brand. Our exclusive Edition 1 is a particularly alluring proposition to boost the market launch.”

The Edition 1 of the GLA impresses with exclusive details both inside and out. The exterior is based on the Urban line with simulated underguard and roof rails in chrome. Further features include bi-xenon headlamps, 19-inch AMG light-alloy wheels finished in high-gloss black, a black radiator grille louvre with chrome inserts, black-painted exterior mirrors, black waistline trim strips and dark-tinted glass starting from the B-pillars.

The Edition 1 features a 3-spoke multifunction sports steering wheel in leather, with perforated grip area and flattened bottom section

The Edition 1 will be available exclusively in the paint finishes cirrus white, orient brown metallic, mountain grey metallic and designo magno mountain grey (from autumn 2014). The special model is recognisable thanks to the “Edition 1” lettering on the front wings.

Seats which are only available in the Edition 1 are upholstered in nut brown leather and Alvorada fabric with striking moccasin stitching

  • sports pedals in brushed stainless steel with rubber studs
  • aluminium trim with trapezoidal grain

  • Light and Sight package (single-tone ambient lighting; illumination of the stowage compartment in the centre console; illuminated make-up mirror for driver and front passenger; illuminated front door sill panels with Mercedes lettering; front and rear footwell lighting; interior mirror with additional lighting; rear lighting with integral reading lamps and locator lighting; windscreen wipers with rain sensor, courtesy and warning lights for driver and front passenger doors).

With its exclusive appointments, the GLA Edition 1 underscores the strengths of the first compact SUV from Mercedes-Benz: progressive in design, serene in day-to-day motoring and with an off-road capability – as a wanderer between automotive worlds, the Mercedes-Benz GLA impressively reinterprets the compact SUV segment. It masters all day-to-day challenges and is also robust enough for off-road excursions.

The particularly rigid body structure of the GLA provides a reliable basis for a wide range of applications.
