Mercedes-Benz plans smaller GLA, the X-Class, could be based on the Renault Captur

The German based automaker Mercedes-Benz has big plans for its new models and one of these will be the so-called X-Class, a small crossover which is believed to be based on the Renault Captur.

With the economical crisis affecting more and more carmakers, Mercedes-Benz wants to bring something new to its lineup, an even smaller crossover than the GLA, which will be named the X-Class. The model in question will be based on the Renault Captur and this will bring the collaboration between the two companies to a whole new level.

The Renault Captur has been officially unveiled during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, in its final production form. The model is currently assembled in Valladolid, Spain, and it’s offered as a 5-door crossover, with a front-engine and a front-wheel drive layout. The Captur stands at 4,122 mm in length, 1,778 mm in width and 1,567 mm in height. Engine options include a 1.5 liter dCi diesel and two petrol units, a 0.9 liter TCe and a 1.2 liter TCe. Transmissions available are either the 5-speed manual or the 6-speed automatic. The vehicle is based on the fourth generation of the Captur and not on the Juke.
