In the GLA 35 it produces 225 kW / 306 hp, in the GLA 45 285 kW / 387 hp and for the GLA 45 S there are 310 kW / 421 hp in the data sheet. There it ensures a maximum of 270 km / h, while the other two are braked electronically at 250 km / h. The manufacturer names consumption values ​​between 7.4 and 9.3 liters (170 to 212 g / km CO2).

As always with AMG, the powerful engine has a correspondingly sportily modified chassis and direct steering. AMG has also expanded the interior and sharpened the design on the outside with its own grills and more contoured sheets.
