Carlsson Has a Go at Making the Mercedes-Benz GLA More Aggressive

Carlsson has released its interpretation of the Mercedes-Benz GLA crossover, with the German tuning company offering exterior and interior upgrades as well as performance kits.

The aerodynamic components are adapted to vehicles wearing the AMG Sports package and enhance the Mercedes GLA’s looks thanks to the front bumper with three-piece stainless steel grille insert, four chromed oval tailpipes integrated into the rear diffuser and alloy wheels between 18 and 20 inches. There’s also a 21-inch Ultra Light model available with 265/30 R21 tires.

Other visual changes include the Carlsson horse logo replacing Mercedes’ star as well as gloss black mirror caps and roof rails.

For the interior, Carlsson offers the Signature Line leather treatment which includes numerous types of leather and colors as well as skins with embossed or imprinted Carlsson logo. Other upgrades include scuff plates with illuminated Carlsson logo on the driver and passenger side, aluminum door lock pins and pedal covers with Carlsson logo, black soft suede floor mats and more.

Performance upgrades are offered for two of the petrol models. The GLA 200 sees its output rise to 187PS (up from 156PS) and peak torque climb to 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) of torque, up from 250 Nm (185 lb-ft). The GLA 250 also gets a power boost from 211PS to 253PS, with torque increasing from 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) to 420 Nm (310 lb-ft).
