Well Range Rover makes the Evoque in 3 door and 5 door layouts. Granted of the 88,000 they sold last year only about 15% were 3 doors, but if the GLA is going to be a vehicle for young people and an aging Europe i dont see why a 3 door GLA cant fly?Not that this will ever be made or anything, but here is a rendering of a 3-door GLA.
There used to be crossovers with only one door on each side, but those days have come and gone. Nobody wants to have to squeeze into the backseat of their "luxury" BMW, and I don't blame them.
I know the backseat is already fairly small but if they bring it a touch forward and rake the rear window a little further we could have a GLA shooting brake!!
the coupe is .5 in shorter than the 5 door...
