Mercedes Benz has also come up with new Aero editions for the two cars. It is priced at Rs 77.69 lakh for the CLA and Rs 80.67 lakh for the GLA. With the Aero editions, the manufacturer has packed some new design elements which include matt graphite grey-coloured AMG sports stripes; AMG night package, which includes gloss black finish across the front splitter; fascia and grill; along with side skirts and wing mirrors. The AMG package will be offered with select exterior paints only. It will also get yellow highlights along the side sill panels, rear bumper and the wing mirrors.
Apart from the above offerings, the GLA 45 AMG will be offered with a special ‘designo MAGNO’ paint finish. It combines the metallic paintwork with a silk matt finish and will be offered with various colour options.
