Mercedes-Benz Malaysia has announced the introduction of a new X156 GLA facelift variant, with the GLA 200 Style joining the GLA 200 Night Edition, GLA 250 AMG Line and and GLA 45 in the local GLA model line-up.

Like the Night Edition version that was launched in September last year, the GLA 200 Style is powered by a M270 DE 16 1.6 litre turbocharged engine offering 154 hp (156 PS) at 5,300 rpm and 250 Nm from 1,250 to 4,000 rpm, paired with a 7G-DCT seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Performance figures include a 0-100 km/h time of 8.1 seconds and a top speed of 215 km/h.

A Style Line exterior adds shiny bits to the presentation – these include additional inserts in high-gloss chrome on the radiator grille trim, and the beltline trim strip and the load sill guard are also finished in chrome. Unlike the Night Edition, the Style rides on 18-inch alloy wheels of the five twin-spoke variety.

Inside, a Style Line interior brings along black matrix-look trim and Artico faux leather/Macapa fabric combination for the upholstery, and standard fit items for the variant includes an 8.0-inch display Audio 20 system with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto support, Keyless-Go and a seat comfort package.

Safety and driver assistance equipment includes Active Brake Assist, otherwise known as autonomous emergency braking, Active Parking Assist with Parktronic and Attention Assist. The GLA 200 Style is priced at RM223,888 (on-the-road without insurance), which makes it a fair bit cheaper than the sportier-looking Night Edition (RM244,888).
