Last month we brought you photos of Mercedes’ answer to the BMW X1, in the form of a petite SUV aptly named the GLA.
Today, our good friends at GMotors captured the first photos of the new crossover’s AMG variant, the GLA 45 AMG while testing in Spain.
As was previously reported, the GLA will ride on the MFA platform that currently underpins the A- and B-Class. The AMG prototype in the photos reveals larger air intakes in the front bumper, bigger wheels, bigger brakes and, like in many other AMG prototypes in their early stages, one single exhaust on each side.
The AMG variant with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that develops approximately 335 HP (246 kW).
Thanks to Andrus and GMotors for the photos.
