Did you ever wonder what a Mercedes-Benz GLA modified by Brabus will be like? Well, if the answer is “yes”, than you have come to the right place.
German tuning company Brabus has recently worked its magic on the new A-Class and on the CLA and now time has come to take focus on their crossover brother, the GLA. The model in question is getting a new bumper, side sills with built-in LED lightning system which can be turned on by opening the door or by the keyless remote, a roof mounted spoiler, a bumper insert, a quad exhaust arrangement made from stainless steel, 21-inch alloy wheels with 255/30 tires, a custom suspension kit which is increasing the ride height by 30 mm or sport springs which can lower it by 25 mm.
