Lightbulb Brabus boosts Mercedes GLA to 400 hp

Filed under: Aftermarket, Performance, Europe, Crossover, Mercedes-Benz, Luxury



Crossovers are hugely popular at the moment. It didn't take long for automakers to realize that buyers would pay extra for premium versions of the little 'utes, and Mercedes-Benz recently jumped into the market in Europe with the GLA-Class (that'll be heading Stateside shortly). The Mercedes specialist tuners at Brabus are now welcoming it into the lineup with a whole array of upgrades.

Of course, Brabus is mostly associated with its high performance engines, and the company has two kits available for the GLA. If you really want some power under the hood, it has a kit for the GLA45 AMG that raises power to 394 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, up from 355 hp and 332 lb-ft in the stock version. It's enough to get the CUV to 62 miles per hour in 4.4 seconds. A further mod bumps the top speed to 168 mph. If you're a bit more economical, the GLA220 CDI is available with a 40-hp upgrade to raise power output to 208 hp and 302 lb-ft, allowing it to hit 62 mph in 8.0 seconds.

The GLA is somewhere in between a high-riding hatchback and a tiny SUV, and Brabus is taking care of both buyers with its list of modifications. It has two suspension kits available: one raises the ride by 1.2 inches, and the other drops the stock height by an inch. The bodykit also mixes sport and off-road with a complicated front airdam replacement and accentuated side gills. At the rear, buyers can spec a rear spoiler and new apron that simulates an underbody guard. The company's famous monoblock wheels are also available in sizes up to 21 inches.

In the US, we still have a little while to wait before the GLA makes it to these shores, but Brabus has its upgrades ready and waiting for it to get here. Scroll down to read about all of the available options.Continue reading Brabus boosts Mercedes GLA to 400 hp
