The interesting thing about crossover SUVs is that the small ones are very similar to MPVs in that they have more headroom and usually a better cargo hold - no load lip, a more practical hatch… that sort of stuff.
Everybody knows how good Mercedes E-Class taxis are, but there could be another airport cab on the way.

It seems like Mercedes will be trying to sell the GLA as a taxi. A familiar test prototype has emerged for Murburgring testing with a taxi sign on top, indicating that a commercial vehicle is being developed. Low emissions, high fuel efficiency and low maintenance costs are a much for this car.

If we were to guess this prototype is front-wheel drive and will be powered by either the basic 1.5-liter diesel.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
