SPY: First encounter with the 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA 45 AMG (X 156)

Mercedes-Benz is showcasing the will to become the most competent expert in the premium compact class. No less than five distinct models are planned on the basis of the A-Class and B-Class. In January, next year we shall see the first glimpse of the new CLA and, one year later, the GLA crossover will also be unveiled. Mercedes-AMG is also involved in the game and it is currently prepping its new army of tremendous weapons. After the A 45 AMG and CLA 45 AMG, both slated to appear in the course of 2013, the GLA 45 AMG is also expected to arrive some time towards the end of 2014.

These are the very first scoops which confirm the X 156 rocket has been officially greenlighted for mass production. The car has recently made the premier walk outside the Affalterbach labs and has been spotted wandering around in a German town. The hints that suggest this is an early development vehicle for the GLA 45 AMG are the alloy wheels with clear AMG styling, the double exhausts and the revised front apron, hidden under the camouflage.

The so-entitled SUV of the new compact class range by Mercedes-Benz will receive the same special treatment as the forthcoming A 45 AMG and CLA 45 AMG: a modified 4x4 traction derived from the standard 4MATIC will ensure maximum dynamism through its fixed 33:67 front-rear ratio, whereas the 2.0-litre turbocharged unit rated at 354 hp and the special AMG sports transmission with double clutch will complete the technical package of the new model. Of course, the high-performance braking system and the suspension management assistant will also be offered, alongside other dedicated ride controlling programs.
