The Edition 1 GLA will be available to order from the end of November for approximately one year after market launch. The exterior is based on the Urban line with 'simulated' underguard and roof rails in chrome. Further features include bi-xenon headlamps, 19-inch AMG light-alloy wheels finished in high-gloss black, a black radiator grille louvre with chrome inserts, black-painted exterior mirrors, black waistline trim strips and dark-tinted glass starting from the B-pillars. The Edition 1 will be available exclusively in the paint finishes cirrus white, orient brown metallic, mountain grey metallic and designo magno mountain grey from autumn 2014 and will be recognisable via 'Edition 1' lettering on the front wings.

"With the new GLA we are opening up the compact SUV segment for Mercedes-Benz," said Ola Kallenius, Member of the Divisional Board Mercedes-Benz Cars Marketing & Sales. "The GLA adds a new emotional variant to the comprehensive SUV range from Mercedes-Benz with which we aim to win over numerous new customers to our brand. Our exclusive Edition 1 is a particularly alluring proposition to boost the market launch."

The interior includes the 'DESERT DUST' spec, with seats - which are only available in the Edition 1 - upholstered in nut brown leather and Alvorada fabric, a leather flat bottomed moccasin stitched 3-spoke multifunction sports steering wheel, sports pedals in brushed stainless steel with rubber studs, aluminium trim with trapezoidal grain air vents with nozzle ring and cross element in silver chrome, windscreen wipers with rain sensor and courtesy and warning lights for driver and front passenger doors.

The brands first compact SUV is 'highly manoeuvrable around town' says Mercedes (length x width x height: 4417 x 1804 x 1494 mm), 'lively on country roads and dynamic and efficient on the motorway' (Cd figure 0.29). The GLA is available with the new generation of 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive with fully variable torque distribution as an option. Initially the power range of the 1.6 and 2.0-litre petrol engines will extend from 115 kW (156 hp) in the GLA 200 to 155 kW (211 hp) in the GLA 250.

Mercedes GLA Edition 1 details

Exclusive model joins market launch line-up: The Mercedes-Benz GLA to launch with Edition 1 model too
Following the successful world premiere of the Mercedes-Benz GLA at the IAA in Frankfurt, many customers are already eagerly anticipating the launch of the new compact SUV from Mercedes-Benz. Now the anticipation is being cranked up a notch to an even higher level. This is because at the time of the market launch in March 2014 there will also be an exclusive Edition 1 variant. It will be available to order from the end of November for approximately one year after market launch.
"With the new GLA we are opening up the compact SUV segment for Mercedes-Benz," said Ola Källenius, Member of the Divisional Board Mercedes?Benz Cars Marketing & Sales. "The GLA adds a new emotional variant to the comprehensive SUV range from Mercedes-Benz with which we aim to win over numerous new customers to our brand. Our exclusive Edition 1 is a particularly alluring proposition to boost the market launch."
The Edition 1 of the GLA impresses with exclusive details both inside and out. The exterior is based on the Urban line with simulated underguard and roof rails in chrome. Further features include bi-xenon headlamps, 19-inch AMG light-alloy wheels finished in high-gloss black, a black radiator grille louvre with chrome inserts, black-painted exterior mirrors, black waistline trim strips and dark-tinted glass starting from the B-pillars. The Edition 1 will be available exclusively in the paintfinishes cirrus white, orient brown metallic, mountain grey metallic and designo magno mountain grey (from autumn 2014). The special model is recognisable thanks to the "Edition 1" lettering on the front wings.
Interior highlights include the DESERT DUST interior with
seats which are only available in the Edition 1 upholstered in nut brown leather and Alvorada fabric with striking moccasin stitching
3-spoke multifunction sports steering wheel in leather, with perforated grip area and flattened bottom section
sports pedals in brushed stainless steel with rubber studs
aluminium trim with trapezoidal grain
air vents with nozzle ring and cross element in silver chrome
cover over the stowage compartment in the centre console
cord floor mats with stitching in the appointments colour
black roof liner and
Light and Sight package (single-tone ambient lighting; illumination of the stowage compartment in the centre console; illuminated make-up mirror for driver and front passenger; illuminated front door sill panels with Mercedes lettering; front and rear footwell lighting; interior mirror with additional lighting; rear lighting with integral reading lamps and locator lighting; windscreen wipers with rain sensor, courtesy and warning lights for driver and front passenger doors).
With its exclusive appointments, the GLA Edition 1 underscores the strengths of the first compact SUV from Mercedes-Benz: progressive in design, serene in day-to-day motoring and with an off-road capability - as a wanderer between automotive worlds, the Mercedes-Benz GLA impressively reinterprets the compact SUV segment. It lightfootedly masters all day-to-day challenges and is also robust enough for off-road excursions.
The first Mercedes-Benz in the fast-growing compact SUV segment is highly manoeuvrable around town (length x width x height: 4417 x 1804 x 1494 mm), lively on country and pass roads and dynamic and efficient on the motorway (Cd figure 0.29).
The GLA is available with the new generation of 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive with fully variable torque distribution as an option.
As a serene day-to-day companion the GLA has a flexible and variable interior. The rear seat backrests can not only be folded down completely, but are also adjustable for angle if required. The large luggage compartment (421 - 1235 litres) is well-presented and can be loaded without difficulty thanks to the low loading sill and the wide tailgate, which opens automatically as an option.
The particularly rigid body structure provides a reliable basis for a wide range of applications. Initially the power range of the 1.6 and 2.0-litre petrol engines will extend from 115 kW (156 hp) in the GLA 200 to 155 kW (211 hp) in the GLA 250.
The two diesel engines excel with dynamic torque and outstanding efficiency: The GLA 200 CDI develops 100 kW (136 hp), has a displacement of 2.2 litres and maximum torque of 300 Nm. It emits only 114 g of CO2 per kilometre. The GLA 220 CDI likewise has a displacement of 2.2 litres and develops 125 kW (170 hp) and 350 Nm.

I expected more sports styling on the interior of the GLA, but the exterior looks really nice. I mean look at the CLA Edition 1 interior. it looks far more sporty.

great photos. the interior resembles the CLA very closely. Which isn't a bad thing. I think its a nice design. The Edition 1 will be nice to get for the GLA. Those extra few features make a difference to me. Plus the rarity of it is nice.

I gave the dealer a deposit today and the Edition 1 is at the port in Jacksonville FL for almost a month now.
They told me it should be here on the 2nd week of September.
Does anybody know the details of the "Night package"?

Thanks

I know for sure that the car is at the port and I got the purchase other with VIN and all prices broken down, even including my trade in. No rush here and the deposit was only $1K and it is refundable. All that I need is to see the car and have my wife drive it, since it will be her car.

Is anybody else getting the Edition 1?

Hopefully you do, if you do, take some pictures of it when you pick it up.
Have you started to think about accessories as yet?

The car comes with nice options, so the only thing that they don't have yet is the neon door sill.
Later on when they have it on the store, I will consider.

Any suggestions for accessories?
