Default Merc's X1/Q3 rival, GLA caught testing!

Mod Note: Team-BHP's review of the GLA-Class has been taken live at this link (Mercedes GLA-Class : Official Review). Please continue the discussion on the new thread. Thanks!

Merc’s player in the X1/Q3 territory has been caught testing. It shares the same MFA platform as the A and B class. It’s expected to be powered by a 1.6L producing 156hp, a 2.0L producing 211hp and an AMG version with a Turbocharged 2.0 producing 335hp.

If launched in India, expect the same diesel mill as in the A well.

It seems more like a Station Wagon to me than an SUV or even a Crossover.

If this is a Crossover then the X1 looks like a proper SUV!

Looks similar to the CLS Shooting Brake. A sibling perhaps?

Going by Merc's current design language, this will definitely be more visually appealing than it's other German counterparts.
