This makes me wonder if companies like AutoArt that make 1/18th scale models will eventually make a GLA.
Mercedes has prepared scale miniatures produced in cooperation with Norev, Schuco and Herpa.
Available in 1:18, 1:43 and 1:87-scale, the GLA model cars have been produced in authentic semblance with the GLA’s CAD design data. Furthermore, they feature original paint finishes and are assembled by hand.
The 1:18 scale GLA-Class built by Norev is obviously the largest and most detailed of the three versions. Available in the genuine paint finishes of polar silver, orient brown and mountain grey Magno, the miniature models are hand-assembled from over 110 individual parts.
Further details of these zinc injection-moulded models include panoramic roof, sports seats, automatic transmission, Intelligent Light System (ILS) headlamps, roof rails and 5-twin-spoke wheels in bichromatic finish. The luggage compartment, bonnet and doors can all be opened and all interior details have been reproduced true to the original GLA-Class. The 1:18 GLA is priced at €69.90 ($95.75) in Germany.
The 1:43 scale GLA is hand-assembled by Schuco and consists of over 55 individual parts. Supplied in a base-mounted box, the scale model is available in South Sea Blue, Jupiter Red and Cirrus White original colors, while the zinc injection-moulded interior features pliable components. The price is €29.90 ($41).
Finally, the smallest scale model available is the 1:18 from Herpa, composed of more than 25 individual parts. Also built by hand, the small Mercedes GLA model car is made from plastic and feature 5-twin-spoke wheels and an authentic interior. Priced at €15.90 ($21.80), the 1:87-scale model is available in Cosmos Black, Mountain Grey Magno or Jupiter Red.
