VATH has released an upgrade program tailored to the Mercedes GLA 45 AMG crossover. Known as the V45, the model has received a carbon fiber exterior styling package which encompasses a front lip spoiler, rear diffuser and a rear spoiler while the lowering springs can bring the vehicle closer to the road by 30 mm. The tuner is also offering a custom set of 20-inch alloy wheels featuring a glossy black finish while inside the cabin there are velour floor mats, alloy pedals, leather-covered sports steering wheel along with a choice of either a wood or carbon fiber trim.
The Mercedes GLA 45 AMG high-performance crossover has also been upgraded in the engine department as the four-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine has received several updates which have bumped output to 395 PS (290 kW) and a maximum torque of 485 Nm (357 lb-ft) which is enough muscle for a maximum speed of 174 mph (280 km/h).
At an additional cost, the Mercedes GLA 45 AMG can be fitted with the tuner’s V45RS package which will raise the output of the engine to an impressive 446 PS (328 kW) and 539 Nm (397 lb-ft), so performances should be even better.
