2021 Mercedes-AMG GLA45 spy shots and video

Mercedes-Benz is working on a new generation of its GLA-Class compact crossover SUV, and we have fresh spy shots and video of one of the Mercedes-AMG versions.

Yes, “versions” isn’t a typo as AMG is offering two performance levels for the latest generation of Mercedes compact cars. In the case of the GLA, there will be a direct replacement for the current GLA45 plus a new GLA35 slotting below. Our latest shots show the GLA45 and prototypes for the GLA35 have also been spotted.

We know this is the GLA45 because of the multiple horizontal slats in the grille. The GLA35 only has a single bar. The prototype also has four exhaust tips at the rear. The design will help differentiate the GLA45 from the GLA35 which is coming with just two tips.
