Concept GLA

The Shanghai Motor Show will not come until April 21. However, Mercedes-Benz already announced the unveiling of the Concept GLA premium compact SUV based on the news released by Autoblog.

According to the news source, the new auto will have a four-cylinder turbocharged engine which is capable of giving off 208hp with an engine displacement of 2.0 liters. In addition, it will come with a 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission. Also, it will be equipped with the 4MATIC all-wheel drive which is becoming the standard of the new releases of the brand.

One of the amazing features that make the new car distinct from its predecessors is its new headlamps that were engineered to utilize laser technology. This will not only enable the car to illuminate the road better, but it can serve as a video projector as well. The projector can be operated with the HD cameras that can be easily mounted on the roof of the car. Moreover, a “sparkle effect” is given off by the headlights too because of its series of fans that serve as a cooling system.

Next, expect a classy interior with the car because it has contrasting leather covers combined with aluminum. A saddle craftsmanship was employed by the interior designers of the car. They made sure that the leather will not only be convenient but also durable by hand stitching its seams. Reportedly, the hand-stitched seams measure up to 65 feet.

Here are the official photos of the car:
