Spyshots: 2014 Mercedes GLA to Rival BMW X1
These fresh spyshots show a fully built up prototype wearing the production body of the GLA. Don’ be fooled by its cute shape, this is a C-segment crossover, basically the size of a Ford Kuga. 4Matic all-wheel drive will likely be optional, and the engines and transmission will be taken from the A- and B-Class.
So, expect the GLA to be offered with turbocharged 1.6-liter and 2.0-liter petrol and diesel engines with outputs of up to 211 hp. There might even be an AMG version with about 335 hp and a double-clutch gearbox, but the prototype has yet to be spotted for this car.
