Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG Edition 1
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class is the smallest vehicle offered as a GL-branded sport-utility vehicle by the German luxury maker. The GLA’s curvy but upright profile, sculptured body sides, exaggerated trim attract buyers who want the capability of a crossover without the stodgy family appearance.

Windowbag covers side windows of the vehicle upon stating a major side collision. Thus it reduces the risk of a passenger hitting his/her head on the side panels or objects, getting inside the vehicle. Driver, front and side back passengers of the vehicle are protected this way.
AMG Aerodynamics package. A larger front splitter, flowing into flics at the air intakes, a fixed rear wing and flics on the front wheel arches all increase downforce pressure. This improves ride characteristics at speed, enhancing in particular lateral acceleration, driving stability and braking distance.
Night Package is a purely aesthetic package that features a handful of personalized details. A high-gloss black finish was added to the front splitter, diamond front grille, air intake grilles, and the outlet grilles on the car’s hood and fenders.
