2017 Mercedes Gla (Facelift) Spotted – Car Business On The Job
Anyone who’s taken delivery of a Mercedes GLA recently, may be disspaointed to see a revised version in this blog. Seems that the new GLA has only been released and here comes another.
The Mercedes GLA was revealed in August 2013 and had its public debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show (2013 IAA). Three years hence, with the other MFA platform-based models (Mercedes A-Class, Mercedes CLA and Mercedes B-Class) having received their mid-facelift, it’s now time for the GLA’s lifecycle change.
The 2017 Mercedes GLA (facelift) seems to feature subtle styling changes on the outside. In the latest, a spy video of the 2017 Mercedes GLA (facelift) has been published by YouTube channel walkoArt.
The spy video doesn’t reveal the changes to be brought to the A-Class based crossover, but it does seem as if its an updated lights and bumpers affair.
Inside, not much is expected to change visually, save for upholstery and trim choices. The 8-inch infotainment system is something already available in the GLA, along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration compatibility.
The Mercedes GLA is expected to keep its four-cylinder engines (1.5-litre diesel, 1.6-litre petrol, 2.0-litre petrol and 2.1-litre diesel), albeit with minor power or efficiency revisions. The transmission choices should continue being 6-speed manual and 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. Base petrol and diesel models will likely continue having front-wheel drive drivetrain layout, while the 4MATIC four-wheel drive system will be available in upper models.
Every article I write is targeted at providing as much information for car owners and prospective car buyers.
Above anything else, Car Business is a company that provides automotive advice for car owners who don’t have access to experts. Am I an expert? I’ve been in the car business for over 38 years, and while there are areas where I’ll reach out to friends and acquaintances for advice, I’ve got a pretty good grasp of most aspects of the business. I’ve been called a lot of things in my time – Car Doctor, Car Professor or The Car Guy, but whenever someone wants some sensible advice, they call me.
I don’t charge for advice, whether it’s on the phone, via email or face to face. I’m happy to provide my expertise whenever I can. So if you want to chat to The Car Guru, get in touch.
I have access to good quality cars – you can see them on Cars Guide. Just click here [Cars Guide] to view our current stock of vehicles.
Other parts of my business that you may find the need to use from time to time are:
www.genuinespares.com.au. This is an online spare parts store for Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Volkswagen and Isuzu Ute. I’ve got thousands of mechanical and panel parts plus Mopar (Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Alfa) T-Shirts, tyres, and alloy wheels as well. If you’re looking for a hard to get replacement part for any of these brands, or you just want to get a better price than retail on any car brand, let me know. And you won’t pay inflated replacement parts prices either. I’ve priced my stock at a discounted value to compete with the USA and Europe spare parts prices but with local delivery charges
We’re local agents for Williams Paint and Interior Protection as well as AutoGard and CleanGard car products and SunX window tinting. The Same story applies. This is an area that car dealers want to make an amazing amount of profit – up to 100% in some cases. Don’t get ripped off by the franchise car dealers – check us out for a local competitive price on car protection products, window tinting, and engine products.
I’m pleased to advise that in 2015 I was awarded the franchise for 1800Approved Finance. As a local finance company, we’re able to provide a better level of service than the local car dealers as well as pretty competitive rates. SO before you sign on the dotted line, let us compare rates on finance and insurance for you – no obligation. If you’re looking for finance for a new or used car, or any other worthwhile purpose, our company can assist – even if you’ve had some troubling financial issues.
BLOG – I write a new Blog for my website a couple of times a week. If you’d like to read some of the stories I’ve written just click here.
