Facebook is slowly but steadily becoming more than just a social network for friends and family, but an online medium where almost all types of information can be exchanged. Such as Mercedes-Benz releasing two official sketches for one of their upcoming models.
The upcoming Mercedes-Benz GLA (X164) crossover is getting nearer to its official production version launch at the Frankfurt Motor Show, in September. So near, in fact, that Mercedes-Benz has decided to start its teasing campaign for the model.

Although as far as we know the event is not exactly part of an official campaign, the sketches for the car that were recently posted on the official Mercedes-Benz page on Facebook are obviously official, since they are also signed by the GLA main exterior designer, Robert Lesnik.

If his name rings any bells, you might have heard of him as being in charge of the Volkswagen Passat B6, modern Scirocco or the Eos. For the last four years he's been at Mercedes-Benz, where his imprint can also be seen on the W222 S-Class.

The production version of the GLA was already previewed by the GLA Concept, shown at the Shanghai Auto Show earlier this year, and these sketches are more in tune with what we saw at that time.

The production version will be based on the A-Class platform, a lot of similar features being shared by the two models, starting from most of the interior to almost every engine in their lineup, including the high-performance 45 AMG variant.
