    Mercedes-Benz GLA Concept: First Official Photos of Compact Crossover
    APRIL 17, 2013
    Carscoops

    With only three days left for the grand opening of the Auto China 2013 in Shanghai this Saturday (April 20, 2013), the first official images of the Mercedes-Benz GLA compact crossover concept have made their way onto the web.
    The study is fairly close to the actual production model that Mercedes will reveal at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September this year, before it goes on sale worldwide in the first half of 2014.

    The A-Class-based premium crossover is 4.38 meters (172.4 inches) long, 1.97 meters (77.6 inches) wide and 1.57 meters (61.8 inches) tall, which makes its slightly bigger than the hatch in all dimensions, while riding on the same 2.69mm wheelbase.

    2.69 mm wheelbase sounds pretty small.

    Overall proportions, yes.

    But it has some interesting M-B details.

    I predict (1) taller roof, and (2) less tumblehome. This is pretty, but they're not going to let it look that good when they build it.

    You are looking at the next generation Equinox. Chevrolet just ordered their new Xerox Machine.

    How does this even look like an Encore or a Murano!!??


    It's an inch longer than Evoque, 3 inches wider, and 4 inches shorter. It's essentially Mercedes' answer to the Clubman.

    I wonder if M B thinks this and the CLA are a way to be relevant to the GEN Y buyers / urban buyers

    My guess is $30-35,000 base price.
