Price £53,405 On sale Now What’s new? Ad­di­tional stan­dard kit and spe­cial yel­low trim sets this range-top­ping vari­ant apart from the reg­u­lar GLA 45 THE TOP-SPEC ver­sion of the Mercedes-amg GLA 45 you can buy is this, the Yel­low Night Edi­tion. Kit such as the AMG Di­nam­ica steer­ing wheel and AMG per­for­mance seats, de­sir­able op­tions on the stan­dard car, are in­cluded in the price here, but so is more di­vi­sive yel­low trim for the wheels, rear wing and dash­board.

The 376bhp tur­bocharged four­cylin­der engine up front makes the car a bal­lis­tic mis­sile in jacked-up hatch­back form, one that dis­guises its height well with sharp han­dling and quick re­sponses. But those are traits also avail­able with the reg­u­lar GLA 45, which costs £6485 less, mak­ing it hard to rec­om­mend this more gar­ish vari­ant.
