Mercedes-Benz GLA taxi car testing at the Nürburgring

What you see is not the new Nürburgring taxi for the upcoming season and it surely won’t be as fast as the BMW M5 or Jaguar XJ Supersport Ring taxis.

The Mercedes-Benz GLA taxi version caught on the Nürburgring hints at a new special version for taxi companies around the world. Currently Mercedes E-Class and B-Class are used as taxi models around Europe.

The GLA concept made its debut in April at the Shanghai Auto Show and the production model is expected to debut in September at the Frankfurt Auto Show with a wide range of 4-cylinder petrol and diesel engines producing up to 211bhp. AMG variant will deliver around 360bhp.

The taxi variant is expected to hit the streets shortly after the standard car is launched.
