GLA will debut in Frankfurt

Mercedes-Benz USA President Steve Cannon has tweeted pictures of the 2014 GLA and S-Class Coupe undergoing testing in Death Valley.

The executive didn't have much to say about the models but confirmed the CL replacement will be called the S-Class Coupe and said "It's amazing!"

Speaking of the S-Class Coupe, it will feature a sleek design with soft curves and gently flowing surfaces. Engine options are expected to include:

  • A twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine with 333 HP (245 kW) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque
  • A 4.7-liter V8 that produces 455 HP (335 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque
  • A twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 with 585 bhp (436 kW) and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft)

The GLA, on the other hand, will be an entry-level crossover that battles the Audi Q3 and BMW X1. It will likely be offered with a variety of familiar engines including:

  • A 1.8-liter diesel with 134 HP (100 kW) and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) of torque
  • A 2.1-liter diesel with 168 HP (125 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque
  • A 1.6-liter petrol with outputs of 120 HP (90 kW) and 154 HP (115 kW)
  • A 2.0-liter petrol with 207 HP (155 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque

No offence, but, I think the GLA is just a jacked up version of the A-class. What Mercedes should have done was to design a completely new small SUV to battle the Q3 and the X1, since those SUV's have brand new designs instead of just basing the design on it's sister car.

just a quick question, I live in the US. Has the AMG E 63 come out,or the 2014 S class come out and if so do you all know when we will start seeing them here in the states. The MBUSA website is not very informative about news like this. Almost all the time I learn more about new cars from WCF than the automakers web site. Thanks

The 2014 S550 will be out late September with the CLA250. The S63, S550v4 and CLLA45 will be following in November. The E63 (E63, E63s, E63sWagon) will all be out early August.
