Luxury carmaker Mercedes-Benz just announced a new crossover, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class. The car will make its official world debut in a few weeks at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt and go on sale in the fall of 2014. Mercedes will first launch the GLA250 4Matic powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, making 208 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
“With the compact GLA we add a fifth attractive SUV variant to the Mercedes-Benz model portfolio in this constantly growing segment. The GLA impresses mainly with its progressive character and agile handling,” says Dr Joachim Schmidt, Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing Mercedes-Benz Cars. “So I am very confident that the GLA with its fascinating design and high everyday practicality will fill many new customers with enthusiasm for the Mercedes-Benz brand.”
