Preview:2012 Mercedes-Benz GLA

Back in December 2007, we were talking for the first time about the possibility to see, in the next years, a Mercedes-Benz SUV model based on the second generation B-Klasse.

The B-Klasse-based compact SUV would compete with the upcoming BMW X1 and Audi Q3.

In August 2008, Mercedes-Benz confirmed that the company is working hard to develop and entirely change the next generations of the A- & B-Klasse models. The officials somehow hinted that a possible SUV under the B-Klasse badge would take shape somewhere in 2012. A possible name for the new Merc was also suggested in articles all over the internet:BLK-Klasse. We were also kind to offer you, our readers, some important technical features related to the pressumed BLK.

Now, after two preview CGIs, it was Auto Zeitung's turn to release a possible sketch of the car in their August issue. The editors also raised the possibility of another badge for the compact SUV:GLA-Klasse. But, we still think the rendering they came up with is rather childish. Quite an offence to use the mule of a Qashqai...
