Mercedes GLA Gets a Price and Launch Date

Mercedes is currently working on a rival to the Audi Q3 and BMW X1 called the GLA. The GLA will be the first small SUV for Mercedes and is based on the Concept GLA that was seen at the Shanghai Motor Show earlier this year. The vehicle will be in production form of the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The little SUV will be the fourth car to use the Mercedes Modular Front-drive Architecture. Other cars on that same platform include the A-class, B-class, and the CLA. The Concept GLA featured a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine producing 208 hp.

The concept was also all-wheel-drive and used a seven speed dual clutch automatic gearbox. The production version is expected to have a selection engines including a four-cylinder diesel and gasoline engines. The vehicle is also expected to be offered in front-wheel-drive versions as well as all-wheel-drive.
