Mercedes introduces new Compact GLA SUV
Luxury automotive brand Mercedes has confirmed that it will be taking the wraps off its newest premium SUV concept, the GLA, at Auto Shanghai on April 21.
The GLA is small enough to settle busy city hubs but thanks to permanent four-wheel drive that should make for a keen leisure-time companion. The interior touches include light-emitting air vents that shine blue when the air conditioning is set below 22°C and start to glow a brighter red as the heat is turned up, apart from the externally mounted 3D/HD cameras that give the driver a clear, birds-eye view of everything neighboring the car.
Dr Joachim Schmidt, Executive VP Mercedes-Benz Cars, Sales and Marketing was quoted as saying “The Concept GLA marks a new approach for us in the compact SUV segment — this is a sporty and more coupé-like evolution of this category of vehicle.”
