Having already seen some renders of the new Mercedes GLA a few months back, it is nice to see some proper eye candy, as the all-new CUV has been spied out and about while being tested. Let’s hope it does not suffer the same fate as the 2014 Corvette Stingray from a few days ago.
Being able to see the new model form Mercedes-Benz up close will be a great opportunity to see if those new Mercedes GLA vs. Range Rover Evoque comparisons were justified, and to see which of the two will come out on top in terms of appearance.
We have just learned from Auto Express that the new GLA will be on show at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show next month, and although it will be compared more to the Audi Q3 and BMW X1 because those will be its German rivals, there is no hiding the fact that the Range Rover Evoque will want a piece of the action as well. Speaking of the Evoque, there is soon to be a new RS version with improved performance.
The 2014 Mercedes GLA price is expected to start at £20,370, this will be about $31,000 based on exchange rates, although there are other factors to consider, such as the UK taxman taking a bigger margin for himself.
Mercedes GLA engine specs for the US market is said to be a four-cylinder 2.0-liter turbocharged engine and will come with a choice of models ranging from 2WD to 4WD. We will bring you more news next month once the GLA shows up at Frankfurt. The Mercedes GLA release date is still unkown, but it will be early 2014.
