The petrol engine is paired with a 7-speed DCT gearbox and a front-wheel-drive system, while the diesel engine is mated to an 8-speed DCT gearbox and a 4Matic all-wheel-drive system. The GLA facelift also features mild-hybrid functionality for its engines, which improves fuel efficiency and performance.

The 2024 GLA facelift competes with other premium SUVs in the Indian market such as the BMW X1, Audi Q2, and Volvo XC40. Mercedes-Benz India claims that the GLA facelift has received a positive response from customers and expects to deliver the first batch of vehicles by March 2024.
