By now you have seen the Mercedes-Benz CLA and CLA45 AMG. Well here is the CLA's brother, the GLA crossover. This vehicle uses the same platform and drivetrain as the CLA-Class but is raised slightly as shown in the GLA Concept. GLA production will start late this year and it will go on sale in early 2014 likely as a 2014 model year car. Expect a GLA250 with the same 208 horsepower M271 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder as under the hood of the CLA250.

Pricing for the GLA250 will be slightly more than the CLA250's $29,900 MSRP. The GLA45 AMG will also be slightly more than the CLA45 AMG's $50,000 mark. Not bad at all for an all wheel drive car wit ha 7-speed dual clutch transmission and a 354 horsepower M133 turbocharged motor.
