Mercedes has released a couple of teaser sketches of its GLA SUV on the company's Facebook page.
The car, which will be shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month, uses Mercedes' MFA architecture and is due to go on sale next year. The car has been spotted testing in recent months at the Nürburgring. The production car is expected to feature more subtle styling than the original Concept GLA seen at the Shanghai motor show.
Engines are likely to be carried over from the A-class range, while an AMG model, equipped with a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine developing 335bhp, is also expected.
