The German manufacturer planned to introduce a new 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLA45 compact SUV at March 3, 2020. After everything that happens around the virus corona, the presentation will be delayed. From factory in Stuttgart comes the new most powerful Mercedes GLA edition, which will be offered in two versions of the same engine. There will be a difference on the outside but also on the inside where the sporting details arrive.

2021 Mercedes-AMG GLA45 Exterior

The biggest difference with the regulatory SUV is the different grille. Still, it’s no different than the one we’ve seen with AMG models. The sharp appearance from the front is accompanied by the same tongue at the back. Let us also mention that the designers have installed a very epic spoiler that fits into the final image.

The interior also emphasizes sports performance. First of all, metal foot pedals, a flat-bottomed steering wheel and sports seats first fall into my eyes. The official pictures are dominated by these yellow lines, though I’d personally like to see the red color.
