Spied a lot of times in various countries around the world, even seen in Dubai too, now the President and CEO of Mercedes-Benz America Steve Cannon, had tweeted the picture of GLA crossover from his Twitter account. The vehicle is doing test rounds in Death Valley.
Vehicle being covered under heavy dose of camouflage, the Mercedes Benz’s executive in his tweet said, “Another day In Death Valley! 110 degrees but this new model coming next year will be hotter!”
And while looking at the image very closely, one would realize BMW X1 is also seen behind it. Hopefully both of the vehicles will rival each other in the future and so we too are drooling over what the comparison has to reveal at the Frankfurt debut.
Adding more of the excitement, one of the leading websites says following engine specification to be found there in the bay of GLA crossover:
- A 1.8-liter diesel with 134 HP (100 kW) and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) of torque
- A 2.1-liter diesel with 168 HP (125 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque
- A 1.6-liter petrol with outputs of 120 HP (90 kW) and 154 HP (115 kW)
- A 2.0-liter petrol with 207 HP (155 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque
Added as a reminder, the GLA will be based on front wheel driven MFA platform of Mercedes Benz and would draw cues from the A Class and B Class.
