Mercedes-Benz has released a video trailer for the GLA Class through its Youtube channel. The car was released on the internet today and makes its global debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month. Mercedes’s fifth SUV may not make it across a river, but is perhaps the most important member, from the perspective of volumes and positioning, in the MFA Platform family.

The Mercedes GLA is 4,417 x 1,804 x 1,494 millimetres (length x width x height) with a Cd of 0.29. The car’s boot space goes from 421 liters to 836 liters when the seats are folded down.

The GLA is powered by three engines, a 1.6-liter (156hp/250Nm) and a 2-liter (211hp/330Nm) firing gasoline and a 2.1-liter diesel engine (170hp/350Nm). Engines are paired to a six-speed manual transmission or to a 7G-DCT dual clutch automatic transmission. All wheel drive technology (4MATIC) is available on both petrol and diesel variants. An AMG model is expected to join this lineup in the foreseeable future.
