Features:

The interiors have also been given a fresh look and although the eight-inch infotainment system remains the same, the instrument panel has received a makeover and the electric seat controls and centre console stowage compartment surround get a chrome finish.

A new Yellow Night Edition model of the GLA has also been introduced which sports black exterior paint, yellow highlights and alloy wheels of the same colour scheme. Artico leather and Dinamica microfibre is present on the seats of  the Yellow Night Edition car.
