When Mercedes-Benz unveiled a year ago the GLA class, everyone was impressed with its qualities as a mini SUV, it was a bigger A Class, but has the luxury of a GL inside. It was fitted with an incredible AMG engine, the 4 cylinders 2.0L that can develop up 370 bhp. There is a new version now, offered by the monstrous Mercedes-Benz tuner : Brabus, and that is The GLA 45 AMG Brabus that can produce now 400 bhp.


The car received many additions, in the Brabus Power Xtra B45 V-Max kit program that adds in all, +30 bhp, thus the total of 400 bhp. The additions are , but not limited to, a rear diffuser, a roof rear spoiler, front spoiler and splitter, and larger front air ducts, bumper trims, and revised side skirts. It comes with LED underfloor lighting (like those used for the SV12 model) activated by simply pulling the door handle or a keyless remote. The power unit is the same as in the GLA 45, the turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, that produce now 400 bhp and 500Nm torques. It has now a stainless steel with four chrome tailpipes exhaust system with butterfly valve . The car will go from stop to 100km/h in 4.4 seconds, top speed announced at 168 mph (around 270 km/h).


The CLA 45 Brabus sits on 30 mm taller suspension, or 25 mm lower sports. It comes with a performance 18- to 21-inch wheels and tires. In the cabin, the car is fitted with new custom leather surfaces, aluminium sports pedals, Alcantara seats and aluminium Race paddle shifters.
