SPY: The 2014 Mercedes-Benz GLA 45 AMG (X 156) spotted near Nürburgring

Mercedes-Benz will premiere its fourth premium compact class model this autumn: the GLA arrives in serial production form at the IAA Frankfurt, after the concept car is unveiled next month at Shanghai. The Cross Activity Vehicle, as it is entitled by the constructor, is intended to be a lifestyle crossover with SUV visual attributes and enhanced dynamics. The AMG model follows in spring 2014.

The latest spy photos featuring the GLA 45 AMG were shot near the Nürburgring track, where the sports crossover was heading for some high-speed tweaking. Compared to the standard version, the Affalterbach-prepped GLA-Class is set apart by the revised exterior package, which includes the specific front bumper with generous air inlets, the lowered clearance (through the high-performance suspension system), bespoke alloy wheels with large diameter and outrageous quad exhaust pipes.

The new GLA 45 AMG completes the new compact model portfolio by joining the A 45 AMG and CLA 45 AMG. The car runs on a front-biased 4x4 powertrain (67:33) which works together with M133 2.0-litre 360 hp unit and the 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox to deliver an outstanding level of performance. The AMG RIDE CONTROL, the 3-stage ESP and the specially tuned components and system of the new model further improve dynamics and safety aboard the GLA 45 AMG.
