2015 Mercedes Benz GLA Class - first new details revealed
|   Monday, August 19, 2013
The new Mercedes Benz GLA Class, programmed for market launch for 2015, will definitely be considered one of the rough competitors of Audi A3, BMW X1 and even for Land Rover Range Rover Evoque. 2015 Mercedes Benz GLA Class can be compared to the Concept GLA which was presented at the Shanghai auto show, most of the supporting structure of the upcoming vehicle have been replicated from several other Mercedes small models' features, especially CLA class which will be launched this autumn.


The model that will be opening this new series is 2015 GLA250 4 Matic and this one will also be available for purchase in late 2014 but only for the US customers. The technical features include 208hp, four cylinder engine and a dual clutch transmission, seven speed exactly as CLA250. Exactly as the name suggests, 4Matic, the power train will allow entire drive of all the four wheels. The other version, front wheel drive GLA250, will be available at the beginning of 2015.

Mercedes has redesigned the GLA Class and CLA Class for a younger public comparing to the previous launched series. The key word is dynamism, therefore, the company has decided to make a change in the age range of the goal public, this time addressing youngsters throughout the new and dynamic wheel long running rear wheel drive design or through the new and extremely efficient front wheel drive systems. All these new characteristics make a huge change in the overall appearance of the vehicle and also modify the price range, making the vehicle a lot more affordable.

The GLA-Class has also been classified by Mercedes in the press release as a "light off road" and presented several demos in which the vehicle was challenged through steep inclines and loose surfaces such as gravel or sand. Compact and tight, this model is a typical crossover: rough hatchback but taller, especially designed to ride on pavement.

Regarding the interior design elements of this new vehicle we can only say that it seems more like an improved CLA-Class. We could tell from the pictures presented by Mercedes that some of the interior design details are just the same. On the other hand, the exterior of this car is, again, really dynamic.
The aerodynamic efficiency was long studied when the hood and fenders were designed so that the car would reach the best fuel economy range it could get for the existing features.

The hi tech features included in the basic options for the previous series will also will considered for this one, as the model will be equipped with Attention Assist, Collision Prevention Assist but further safety equipment regarding the prevention of high impact collision would be available upon request, as optional.
The company has proudly stated that this new and advanced car will certainly be a performance leader as the 4Matic is said to be capable of reaching up to 60 miles per hour in 6.4 seconds – 145 mph.
