  • The GLA will slot in beneath the GLK offering a raised ride height, aggressive new styling, as well as of course the company’s new 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder in the flagship AMG model.

Mercedes-Benz’s compact A-Class is one of the most important launches from the Stuttgart luxury carmaker in recent years, so it’s only natural that the company milks its latest front-wheel drive MFA platform for all its worth.

Hot AMG model? Check. Hot four-door coupé called CLA? Check. A slightly bigger B-Class? Done and dusted. A crossover to represent the fastest growing car segment on the planet? Well then, say hello to this just-spied GLA baby-SUV…

With a choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive, the GLA will slot in beneath the GLK offering a raised ride height, aggressive new styling, as well as of course the company’s new 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder in the flagship AMG model.

Tuned to the max (this is the highest specific-power output engine around right now) the GLA 45 AMG should put 335bhp to all four corners and make a right mess of some Evoque sales.
