Mercedes-Benz has been busily updating its smallest models, and a refreshed version of its hottest GLA is in the works.
It’s expected the facelift will debut later this year.
Spy photos depict only small changes to the rear design whereas the front seems to be hiding a few more changes under its camouflage.
The headlights will reportedly get a new light signature, as will the tail lights.
Camouflage on the front of the vehicle indicates there are going to be some changes to the air intakes, grille and front bumper.
New wheel designs are also expected across the GLA range.
It’s unclear if Mercedes-AMG will update the engine or powertrain in the upcoming refresh. Given the related A45 hasn’t received any powertrain updates, it seems unlikely.
Currently the Mercedes-AMG GLA45 offers a turbocharged 2.0-litre four cylinder engine that produces 310kW and 500Nm of torque, powering all four wheels.
The current-generation Mercedes-AMG GLA45 went on sale in Australia in 2020 alongside its lesser GLA siblings.
Mercedes-Benz is debuting a new small car platform in 2024 to replace MFA2, called MMA.
