Models with the index GLA, the youngest in a number of crossovers with a three-beam star and the eighth in a row in the line of entry-level will become a kind of cherry on the cake, made up of new products launched this year.
The teaser of this "state employee for the rich", in which he is shown strictly in profile, yet, it should be noted, is very informative, and besides, the manufacturer has attached to it and three more photos of official origin, in which he appears, albeit in disguise, but still in all three dimensions, and also shared some preliminary technical data.
It is known that due to the relatively small height of the first generation GLA, the definition of "high hatchback" quickly stuck to it, and now the creators of the successor have taken steps to rehabilitate it as an already full-fledged crossover. So, it is reported that the baby has grown more than 10 centimeters compared to its predecessor, and its height is now 1505 mm.it is Claimed that this "is designed to provide a higher, characteristic of the all-terrain vehicle seat position." Also, a higher landing of the driver and front passenger allowed to make the cabin more spacious for themselves and for the passengers of the second row. In this case, the new crossover is 15 mm shorter than its predecessor, but it will not eat the above-mentioned spatial gain due to the larger wheelbase while reducing the front and / or rear overhang.
It is mentioned, of course, that the new GLA in full accordance with the traditions of the brand will be Packed to capacity with safety systems and driver assistance. Among them, for example, a complex of radars and sensors that signal the detection of pedestrians near Zebra crossings, an active braking assistance system and a function that warns the driver when he intends to get out of the car about the approach of other cars, motorcyclists or cyclists.
All other details about the new Mercedes-Benz GLA will be known soon, on December 11, as part of the scheduled online presentation for this day.
