Mercedes-Benz will give its 2015 GLA 250 compact SUV a North American debut in late November at the Los Angeles Auto Show, according to organizers.

The vehicle will be one of four global or national debuts for Mercedes-Benz at a show featuring 22 global debuts. The show runs from Nov. 19-21 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

The GLA 250 is the first Mercedes-Benz in the fast-growing compact SUV segment and the first from the automaker with an optional permanent all-wheel drive system known as 4MATIC with fully variable torque distribution. Front-wheel drive will be standard.

It will arrive with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 208 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. The European version of the vehicle has been rated to achieve 33.1 mpg, reports Car and Driver.

The GLA 250 would join the GLK, ML, GL, and G in the Mercedes-Benz SUV portfolio. The vehicle made its global debut at the International Motor Show in Frankfort in September. It will be available in the U.S. in the fall of 2014.
