Mercedes Concept GLA 45 AMG debuts in Los Angeles

Having seen different prototypes we knew Mercedes is working on a high-performance GLA 45 AMG, following the already revealed A 45 AMG and CLA 45 AMG.

Now the Stuttgart based automaker has unveiled a Concept GLA 45 AMG at the Los Angeles Auto Show, previewing a production model, which will follow in the near future.

Power comes from a familiar 355bhp 2.0-litre turbo petrol linked to AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission, already found in the A 45 AMG and CLA 45 AMG.

Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH: “With the Concept GLA 45 AMG, we are setting a stake firmly in the ground of the strongly growing market segment of compact SUVs. Our customers – a young target group who set great store by styling, dynamism and independence – can now start looking forward to a dynamic high-performance car. Themost powerful four-cylinder engine in the world and the AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system add up to make the Concept GLA 45 AMG a unique proposition.”

The GLA 45 AMG promises a sprint from 0-62mph in under five seconds.

The concept rides on huge 21-inch wheels, featuring modified bumpers and prominent rear wing, which is unlikely to make it to the production model.

Other updates include new rear diffuser, four-tailpipe sports exhaust system, black roof rails, body side graphics and high-performance brakes.
