2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA spy shots and video

Mercedes-Benz has just launched the 2020 GLB compact crossover SUV, but the automaker isn’t going to drop its existing option in the segment, the GLA.

In fact, a redesign for the GLA is coming and we’ve just spotted a prototype. It will likely trail the GLB by about a year, meaning we should see it introduced for the 2021 model year.

The spy shots show the new GLA maintains the current model’s hatch-like shape to help differentiate it from the boxier GLB. The GLA also has a much shorter wheelbase than the GLB, and it looks to have taken on a more city chic design compared to its predecessor.
