The GLA is a good looking car in both GLA 250 and AMG GLA 45 guise. The car is handsome, with a typical German style, with design cues that evoke the larger Mercedes SUVs. It has a significant amount of visual features that make it look interesting, without overdoing it like many other brands. This means the GLA has a formal appearance that's necessary for a luxury car, without making it seem too boring. Inside, the cabin is appropriately luxurious, with optional leather, wood trim, carbon fiber, and aluminum to finish it off the way you want it.
The AMG GLA 45 looks broadly similar to the GLA 250 on the outside, with the major difference being a more aggressive looking bumper, splitter and rear diffuser, but the interior is a bit more sports-car like, with Alcantara seats and trim (known in Mercedes as DINOMICA) and bright red seat belts inspired by racing harnesses. Several option packages can change the look of your AMG GLA 45, allowing you to choose a more luxurious flavor, or one that's a bit more sporty.
To really set your AMG GLA 45 apart from the standard GLA, Mercedes offers the AMG Performance Studio Package, which completely changes the visual flavor of the car. With this package, the GLA 45 gets a big rear spoiler, wheels, door mirrors and a unique interior all trimmed in yellow, performance front seats by Recaro, and a variety of aerodynamic and visual upgrades. It serves to complete the GLA’s transformation from Dr. Jekyll into Mr. Hyde.
