The rest of the GT line-up also gets a light makeover, with the most obvious change being the adoption across the range of the retro PanAmericana-style grille with its 15 chrome uprights. Also standard on all GTs now is the active air management louvres at the bottom of the front apron. Power is up too: the entry GT boasts 476bhp (14 more than before), and the S gets 522bhp (12bhp up).
The other newcomer at Detroit, the revised GLA is hardly changed over the car that launched the three-pointed star into the compact SUV sector in 2013. A package of mods – new bumpers, wheels, LED lights, birdseye camera and shinier trim – applies to all models. But the pick of the range, the AMG GLA45 complete with its 381bhp, gets more of a front-end restyling and a new diffuser at the rear. 20-inch wheels are now an option too.
The revised AMG GLA (along with AMG versions of the A saloon, coupe, and estate) is marking its imminent arrival with a less than catchily named Yellow Night Edition. There’s more equipment, bespoke trim… and, you guessed, a black paint job with yellow highlights.
