The second-generation GLA shares several styling details with the A-Class upon which it's based, with the latest images showcasing how it will sit lower to the ground than the previous model. The swollen rear haunches and profile unique to its siblings remain.
The interior image shows that the dashboard is also set to be very similar to that of the A-Class and Mercedes' other new compact models, featuring rounded air vents and the twin touchscreens of the MBUX system.
It also now sits below the GLB, the largest car on that platform and a new, fully fledged rival to the BMW X1 and Audi Q3. That leaves the GLA to compete with smaller compact crossovers such as the Audi Q2 and Ford Focus Active and is why it likely has a lower, more car-like profile.
