Mercedes GLA is finally announced. Mercedes’s response to BMW X1 and Audi Q3. And GLA looks way better than the new M-Class! GLA shares the same platform with A-Class and shares the same interior, what a coincident! However, based on the press photos of the Mercedes GLA, the wood interior changed the atmosphere of the interior and makes the GLA more tempting than the ML!
Mercedes GLA will be offered front-wheel and four-wheel drive options. Engines are, GLA 200 with 1.6-lt petrol engine 156 HP and GLA 250 with 2.5-lt petrol engine 211 HP. The diesel options are, GLA 200 CDI with 2.2-lt 136 HP and GLA 250 CDI with 2.2-lt 170 HP. All the engines are coupled with a 7G-DCT double clutch automatic gearbox with ECO stop and go feature.
By the way, GLA does not look boring! Something went wrong in Mercedes headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany. It is impossible to see a Mercedes that looks dynamic, I am definitely sure aliens captures the Mercedes design office and take control of the management, that's the only way I can explain the design of GLA :) Even the video looks fantastic!
