2015-MY Mercedes-Benz GLA Class Slated to Arrive in U.S. in Fall 2014

September 05, 2013

Mercedes-Benz has announced that the all-new 2015 GLA-Class will arrive in U.S. showrooms in Fall of 2014.

The first Mercedes-Benz in the fast-growing compact SUV segment will be length 173.9 inches long, 71 inches wide, and 58.8 inches high. The 2015 GLA-Class is the first Mercedes-Benz SUV to be available with the new-generation permanent all-wheel drive system 4MATIC, with fully variable torque distribution, according to automaker.

The new GLA rounds off the extensive SUV portfolio of Mercedes-Benz. With five model series (GLA, GLK, ML, GL and G), the company said it offers the widest range of any European premium manufacturer, and meets all the individual mobility wishes of its customers.

"With the compact GLA, we add a fifth attractive SUV variant to the Mercedes-Benz model portfolio in this constantly growing segment. The GLA impresses mainly with its progressive character and agile handling," said Joachim Schmidt, executive vice president Sales and Marketing Mercedes-Benz Cars. "So I am very confident that the GLA with its fascinating design and high everyday practicality will fill many new customers with enthusiasm for the Mercedes-Benz brand."

The GLA’s rear seat backrests fold down completely, and the generous luggage compartment is well laid-out and can be loaded without difficulty thanks to the low loading sill and the wide tailgate, which can open automatically as an option. The especially rigid body structure provides a reliable basis for the 2.0L 4-cylinder engine with 208 hp and 258 lb.-ft. of torque.

The all-new 2015 GLA-Class will celebrate its world premiere at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt in September.
