Meet the 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class, the German automaker's newest crossover. Aside from looking playful, sporty, and powerful, the GLA-Class has a mission to allow more consumers to make the jump into owning a MB thanks to its more affordable entry price. This has been a goal of MB for some time now, and the GLA-Class just may be the ticket to the younger, mid-career level clientele that the brand has hoped to lure into the dealerships. In terms of size, the GLA is slightly bigger than the A-Class and longer than the Range Rover Evoque with a turbocharged and direct-injected 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine producing 208 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque inside. Balancing out the comfortable cabin, performance should also be impressive with a 6.4 second 0-60mph time thanks to its seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Overall, a very exciting and impressive addition to the MB line-up that will definitely stir the pot for some time to come.  Aside from the preview images after the click, expect to see this MD CUV on sale in the US in the fall of 2014.
