Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG – Summer and All-Season Tires

Sometimes new vehicles have surprises in store for us! This 2015 GLA45 AMG has the world’s most powerful 4-cylinder and the new owner proclaimed it “cute as a bug.” Unfortunately, we realized the Summer Tires it was equipped with from the factory were not going to be adequate for their winter driving needs.

Here is the solution! From 20″ matte black wheels for the summer…

To 19″ Silver and Grey Wheels with All-Season Tires for the winter!

We could not find a set of all season tires to mount to the 20″ wheels so we went another route. We found a good looking set of 19″ Mercedes-Benz wheels and mounted an all season 19″ MOE tire to that set. Then we simply exchanged them! The 20″ black wheels are bagged up and ready to make their appearance in the spring! Very European, right?

Speaking of the old wheels…I was shocked to find out they easily fit in the back of the GLA45 with room to spare! Impressive!

Here is a close-up of the 19″ wheel we selected. It still shows off those amazing brakes and red calipers and now the car has two looks! Not a bad idea!

2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA250 Edition 1 at Atlanta Classic Cars!

new GLA launch

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLAs began to arrive yesterday and are clean and ready for new homes today! We were lucky to receive not one, but two GLA250 Edition 1 vehicles! By request, here are some additional pictures of the car. It was parked next to the GLA45 AMG this morning and several people got them confused!

The gloss black wheels, mirror housings and the pano roof really jump out with the white exterior. The cloth inserts in the brown leather seats look like an expensive tweed. We don’t normally do cloth in the US but it is very durable, cool and a nice change of pace. The CLA launch edition sold out quickly…don’t miss out this time!

Mercedes-Benz Plug-In Hybrids – Coming Soon!

Mercedes hybrid

Mercedes-Benz has been building hybrid vehicles for quite awhile. We have sold limited numbers of ML450 Hybrid and S400 Hybrids in the US. Recently Mercedes-Benz has announced that they will be adding to our Plug-In Hybrid choices!

Automotive News Article

““On average we will bring a new plug-in hybrid to market every four months,” said Johannes Reifenrath, head of product strategy and planning at Mercedes-Benz Cars.”

“The S 500 plug-in will offer the performance of a V-8 with the consumption of a four-cylinder engine, according to Mercedes. Additionally, it will give motorists the option to drive emissions free for up to 33 kilometers when its 8.7 kilowatt hour lithium iron-phosphate battery is fully charged, which takes anywhere between two to four hours.”

“Part of the savings from the S-class plug-in comes from its predictive energy management system that uses GPS data and radar sensors to calculate a route-based adaptive strategy for when to best drive electrically, use the combustion engine only, or both in combination.”

More choices is a good thing, right?
