Mercedes-Benz will be showing a compact premium class SUV at this week’s “Auto Shanghai” motor show in the form of its Concept GLA. The Concept GLA combines dynamic styling with clear benefits for recreational use. The 211hp four cylinder engine ensures fun both on and off the road. Its power is transmitted to the road via the 7G-DCT dual clutch automatic transmission and 4MATIC all-wheel drive. A new approach is taken here in the form of headlamps featuring laser technology: these not only shine more light on the road, but also function as projectors.
The design of the new Mercedes-Benz Concept GLA is certainly the most impressive – while being very sporty, the car still features very distinctive SUV features and the combination of the two is the real winner. The interior reflects a clear alignment with the interiors of the other new compact Mercedes models, reinterpreted here for a sophisticated and exceptionally high-quality SUV.
All in all, the Concept GLA combines stand-out existing Mercedes-Benz features and technology with innovative new features, especially when it comes to the new light technology. The World Premier of the car takes place at the Auto Shanghai motor show on April 20.
