The prototype of the German crossover model year 2021 was seen on the Nurburgring race track on a rainy day. The exact date of the presentation of the novelty is still unknown – most likely the debut will take place in the coming weeks.

Mercedes has not yet introduced the second-generation GLA crossover, and the prototype of the most powerful performance of this car seems almost ready for its official debut. A fully masked prototype Mercedes-AMG GLA 45 was spotted during testing on the German Nurburgring racetrack

  But why do we think this is a test model of the high-performance crossover Mercedes-AMG GLA 45? The fact is that the car received branded four tailpipes of the exhaust system, wheel arch extensions, as well as a false radiator grille with vertical Panamericana bars.

 Another proof that this is the “charged” version of the crossover with an index of 45 are the huge air intakes, similar to those of the new Mercedes-AMG A45 hatchback.

 Foreign journalists also managed to take a picture of the salon of the German novelty and it seems that she, too, is almost ready for the presentation. We can see the red emergency button, which is most likely temporary, but everything else seems to be ready, right down to the Alcantara steering wheel, which is also borrowed from the A45.

  It is known that under the hood of the most powerful version of the GLA 45 S there will be a four-cylinder engine with a capacity of 416 horsepower (500 Nm). The basic version of the new GLA 45, with a capacity of 382 hp, will also be offered (480 Nm), as well as the less productive GLA 35, which can offer 302 hp.(400 Nm). All versions of the compact crossover will have four-wheel drive and an automatic transmission, but models with an index of “45” will have eight gears and a mode for drifting.

  Mercedes did not say a word about when the new GLA crossover will be presented. Most likely, the car will be shown in the coming weeks, and soon after that we will be shown the high-performance versions GLA 35, GLA 45 and GLA 45 S.
