Mercedes-Benz GLA teased image

Mercedes-Benz has recently released the first teaser images with the brand new 2014 GLA, which is believed to make its public debut next month, during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The brand new 2014 Mercedes-Benz GLA is being placed into the spotlights once again, after it has been spied numerous times while being tested, this time with the help of the carmaker, which has released two teaser images with the model. The sketches below have been posted on the company’s official Facebook account and it’s the first time when the model is highlighted in an official way, getting a sparring partner ahead of the main fight scheduled for Frankfurt.

The final production version of the Mercedes-Benz GLA is inspired by the GLA Concept which has been officially unveiled earlier this year, during the Shanghai Motor Show. The model in question will be a high-riding A-Class with two-bar grille, a tailgate mounted spoiler, bulging fenders and an almost identical cabin. The engine lineup will be carried over from the A-Class and it will include the 2.0 liter turbo with its 360 HP (265 kW) which will make its way onto the GLA45 AMG. The new GLA will rival the BMW X1 and the Audi Q3.
