T. Gargour & Fils launches its new 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA known by its progressive character and agile handling. The GLA is the first Mercedes-Benz to be optionally available with the new generation with fully variable torque distribution. It is highly manoeuvrable around town, lively on country and pass roads and dynamic and efficient on the motorway. The high-quality appointments, developed with much love for detail, and the flexible interior clearly position the GLA as new generation compact car. It is also available with four-wheel drive system 4MATIC.
It represents the new compact class car combining tradition and progression, which are two of the most prominent design values at Mercedes-Benz. GLA is characterized by its reduced emissions that cause global warming. The high structure of the car and the large wheel arches make GLA irresistible. The smooth surfaces and clear contours reflect the accuracy and versatility of the design. The three-pointed star in the front part of the car gives its more strength and superiority. Powerdomes structure the bonnet as sporty features, and the twin-louvre grille accentuates the vehicle's width. An impressive front aspect is ensured by the headlamps and LED daytime running lamps. This iconic Mercedes-Benz design feature was developed further using trifunctional fibre-optics, and gives the vehicle its characteristic light signature. The front bumper features diamond-pattern grilles in front of the cooling air intakes. The optional fog lamps are integrated into the front bumper.
Attractive Design and High Quality
Sensual clarity as an expression of modern luxury – this was the focus for the designers, and is the design philosophy of Mercedes-Benz. It creates a bridge between modernity and the avant-garde, between tradition and progression. Each model series has an assigned role and has a very specific character, depending on the attributes on which the design focuses.
The muscular and imposing appearance of the exterior is systematically continued into the interior by the choice of high-grade materials. All trim surfaces are galvanised in silver-shadow for material authenticity, resulting in a metallic finish with a "cool-touch" effect. The heavy emphasis on horizontals, the dynamic design and the highly attractive design features are other high-quality attributes. The dashboard consists of an upper and lower section, allowing surface structures that are different in look and feel. The three-dimensional trim section of innovative membrane, aluminium or wood lends a new, modern touch to the interior. The matt satin finish of the wood trim is a further enhancement to the modernity, and makes the surface particularly pleasant to the touch. Sports seats with integrated head restraints are available as an optional extra. In this context, Mr. Cesar Aoun, General Manager of Mercedes-Benz and Smart at T. Gargour & Fils said: “Mercedes-Benz GLA is amazing in terms of its progressive character and agile handling. We are confident that many customers will feel enthusiastic about owning this car characterized by its fascinating design and practical character for everyday use. In fact, GLA, with its attractive features, embodies our progressive thinking.”
Safety on the roads is very important and it is provided by GLA, which is equipped with several systems that assist the driver and reduce the rate of accidents. These systems include the ATTENTION ASSIST that detects when the driver is sleepy and consist of sophisticated sensor systems (COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST) operating on radar to warn the driver upon occurrence of accidents.
