Mercedes tries to expand the attractivness of the current GLA with the introduction of new features for the GLA250 version. The 2016 model will have new infotainment features and user technology, along with additional standard amenities.

The Mercedes GLA debuts a new infotainment system with a larger 7 inch display (vs. 5.8 inch before) and includes a media interface and pre-wiring for Garmin Map Pilot navigation. Voices will sound clearer thanks to new HD Voice for compatible mobile devices.

The list of equipment will include keyless start, dual-zone climate control and seat cushion length adjustment. Dynamic Select replaces AGILITY SELECT and allows the driver to choose from four performance modes, “Comfort”, “ECO”, “Sport” and “Sport+.” 

The available Rear View Camera now provides 180-degree view functionality. The power passenger seat is now available as a stand-alone option.

New for 2016, multi-color Ambient Lighting is included with the Interior Package and can also be added as a standalone option. The optional Night Package, available in conjunction with the Sport Package, adds a custom look with gloss black exterior trim and black wheels. 

In terms of design, Kryptonite Green metallic replaces Universe Blue for 2016. Inside, available two-tone beige/black leather interior replaces gray leather.
