The Mercedes GLA compact premium crossover is a close relative to the CLA and is based on the same MFA platform. Powertrain options are also shared but the SUV gets an additional Renault-sourced 1.5-litre diesel engine. The GLA 45 AMG packs in the same 355 bhp motor that is found in the CLA 45 AMG and just like the sedan, power is transferred to all the four wheels via the 4MATIC all wheel drive system.
