Seriously, who spiked the water. News comes out today that Mercedes is working on a X-class to slot BELOW the GLA. Ok thats fine, no issues yet. EXCEPT, this baby X-class is going to be based on the Renault Captur. Part of this agreement.



what will they think of next...

There is also the rumoured Q30 will share some of the components/platform of the GLA. If you can't beat them, join them.

that is true, but even then both vehicles will be really different from eachother.
seems like they just wanted to split most of the development costs to make it less of a burden

oh indeed, the GLA and Q30 platform was a joint dev between the two. But really a Renault to underpin a mercedes.. The Captur platform was derived from the Clio.

it's a crazy way to spread it out but the more the better.
thankfully they're setting themselves up right, lessen the chances of going into make debt.

Apparently Nissan really won out by getting to do this partnership. Apparently Mercedes (Daimler) looked into partnerships with a lot of the other big brands. So I'm thinking that Nissan is really happy about this.
