Some new info regarding the GLAs European availability surfaced the other day, we may be able to learn a few things.
First up, GLA order books will open for European business on November 20th 2013, while Euro deliveries are expected to start early in March '14.
As for pricing the base FWD only GLA200 will command EUR 29,304, while ticking the AWD box will ratchet the price quickly up to EUR 37,497. The GLA 200 CDI diesel (likely the most popular derivative) will ask for EUR 32,230.
No word on Edition 1 package pricing but considering it bundles aluminium roof rails, bi-xenon lamps, AMG rims and interior tweaks expect it somewhere in the ~40K EUR range.
To put the GLAs euro pricing in perspective for our Americans I took a look at the CLAs euro pricing vs NA. In Europe the CLA starts at EUR 28,977, while in America its $29,9XX. So its reasonable to expect the GLA to begin at ~$30-32K in America.
Europe has had the CLA for several months before it was made available in America, expect a similar launch strategy for GLA.
