<p>The tail end of the Mercedes­-AMG GLA 45 4MATIC shows the car’s feisty character. The new spoiler lip and the AMG diffuser-­look rear apron reduce the lift on the rear axle and hold the sportster solidly on the road. Hallmark front­end features: the AMG radiator grille with its twin louvre in silver chrome and the AMG front apron in an A­wing design. Large cooling air intakes and distinctive gills on all air intakes serve to underline the vehicle’s self-­assured and dynamic appeal. With looks like these, even a compact SUV can earn respect in any terrain.</p>
