Of course, it will be based off of the Mercedes Concept GLA, which first saw the light of day at the Shanghai Motor Show earlier this year. It utilized a 2.0L turbocharged gasoline four-banger good for 208hp driving all four-wheels and an all-new seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. The recipe is expected to be somewhat similar, with a range of four-cylinders taken from the A-Class, driving either the front or all four wheels via Mercedes’ patented 4MATIC.

The prices are expected to start around £25,370 in the UK market, or around $39,321 US. No word on a US-bound version has been spared, but a range-topping performance Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG is expected, donning the same setup as the current A45 AMG.
