Mercedes-Benz GLA Teased Ahead Of Official Reveal
The new Mercedes-Benz GLA has just been teased on brand's official Facebook page with couple of sketches. They give a vague idea of what the new model will look like. The two design sketches show the front and the rear of the car and we can surely say that it will look astonishing when it will be unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The A-Class based small crossover is going to enter a full production starting from next week, and it is expected to be seen in dealerships in the beginning of next year. This Mercedes-Benz vehicle has been revealed already in the form of a concept, which made a debut in June this year at Auto Shanghai.
So we are very much to see the same model in Frankfurt which is 4,380 mm long, 1,970 mm wide, 1,570 mm tall and has a 2,690 mm long wheelbase. The GLA concept is also powered by the familiar 2.0 liter turbocharged petrol unit used in the A250. It generates 211 hp (155 kW).
The engine is matched to a 7G-DCT dual-clutch gearbox sending the power to the 4MATIC all-wheel drive system. Additional highlights of the concept feature bulging hood, raked windscreen, protection plates under the bumpers, roof rails, muscular wheel arches (with moldings), dual exhaust and 20" alloys covered by 255/45 R20 tires.
The only thing left in question is whether we are to see the same specifications in the production vehicle.
