A few days ago, the German manufacturer Mercedes-Benz has published the first sketches with the 2014 Mercedes GLA model. Yesterday, the Stuttgart-based car maker has come with a video teaser and today, they have officially unveiled their model.

The production version of the Mercedes-Benz GLA is looking like an A-Class on steroids. It features a muscular body with bigger alloys, roof rails and a dual exhaust. There is also a tailgate mounted spoiler and an identical cabin.

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz GLA measures 4.417 mm long, 1.804 mm wide and 1.494mm tall. It has a drag coefficient of just 0.29 and the cargo space has a 421 liters. With the rear seats folded, the luggage compartment raises to 836 liters.

If you have a big family and you want more space for the luggage, Mercedes-Benz is offering an optional called Load Compartment. Thanks to this, the load area is increased by 60 liters by moving the backrests and the rear seat bench to a steeper position.

As we expected, under the hood, there will be the same units seen on the A-Class. The petrol engines include a 1.6 liter with 156 horsepower in the GLA 200 and in the GLA 250 will be featured a 2.0 liter with 211 horsepower.

The diesel fans will be able to order the GLA 200 CDI with a 2.2 liter that can offer 136 HP and 300 Nm or the GLA 220 CDI fitted with the same engine but who delivers 170 HP and 350 Nm.

Order books for the new 2014 Mercedes-Benz GLA will open in United Kingdom at the end of November and the deliveries are scheduled for early next year.
