Shanghai Preview: Mercedes-Benz GLA Concept

Posted by: Shelton Kwan onApril 17th, 2013

Mercedes-Benz continues to churn out vehicles based on their new FWD compact platform, and up next for the German company is the GLA compact crossover. While it is set to be unveiled later this week at the Shanghai Auto Show (Auto China), some pictures have been leaked.

From the same platform that powers the A, B and the new CLA class, the GLA crossover will be bigger and taller than its relatives, measuring 172.4 inches long, 77.6 inches wide and 61.8 inches tall. The wheelbase remains unchanged. Powering the GLA250 will be the 2.0L 208hp 4-cylinder coupled to the 7 speed dual-clutch gearbox. Shortly after the arrival of the GLA250, the GLA45 AMG will be introduced, with the same drool worthy 355hp drivetrain that powers the A45 AMG and CLA45 AMG.
