Official images of the Mercedes Concept GLA just leaked ahead of its Shanghai debut along with fresh details about the vehicle previewing the production GLA.

Based on the A-Class, the GLA keeps close proportions to its platform sibling, growing slightly in almost every area. Specifically, the crossover is 172.4 inches long, 77.6 inches wide and 61.8 inches tall while maintaining the same wheelbase as the A-Class.

As the photos show, it shares certain design elements with the A-Class and North America-bound CLA-Class, albeit with more rugged styling appropriate to a crossover.

The car gets a roof rack, protection plates under the bumpers and 20-inch wheels. The interior borrows heavily from the A-Class while adding a unique instrument panel and the sort of bespoke trim typical to a concept car.

According to leaked information, the concept features a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 208 hp pushed through a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, although the AMG version will likely be similar to the CLA45 AMG’s 355-hp four cylinder.

Wow! The interior looks beautiful. I like the brown leather and the hole between the backrest and head rest. I wasn't sure if i'd like the hatchback on a Mercedes but, if it ends up looking like these pictures, then Mercedes did a really good job.
