Mercedes-Benz arrives fashionably late to the compact SUV party with the GLA-Class
14 Apr 2014
MERCEDES-BENZ has fitted the final piece to its compact-car puzzle by introducing the GLA-Class crossover to its line-up this week.
Following on from the B-Class hatch, the reborn A-Class and the CLA four-door coupe, the GLA is the smallest member of Benz’s SUV family sitting well under the ML, GL and G-Wagon as well as the mid-size GLK that is expected to join the line-up next year.
The GLA is available in three specification levels including 200 CDI diesel, 250 4Matic all-wheel-drive petrol and GLA45 AMG performance flagship, however due to global production constraints only the CDI is available at launch, with the others to follow in the coming months.
Is Mercedes’ attractive compact crossover up to the task of taking on the likes of the BMW X1 and top-selling Audi Q3?
