LINCOLNWOOD, Ill., Aug. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The compact luxury crossover segment is the fastest growing portion of the automotive industry for the 2015 model year. With new entries from the world's most respected automakers, the anticipation surrounding the releases of these small utility vehicles is at an all-time high. While there are several new models entering the class, the launch of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA near Chicago IL may trump them all.
That is largely due to the success of the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, which debuted last year. The CLA-Class took over as the entry-level sedan for the Mercedes-Benz lineup. Now, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class will serve a similar purpose within the utility portion of the fleet.
In fact, the all-new GLA-Class has quite a few things in common with the popular Mercedes-Benz CLA. The two models share a platform, a base powertrain and offer certain similarities in their cabin styles and features.
When the 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class arrives on the Loeber Motors lot in the coming weeks, consumers can expect to first see GLA250 4MATIC models, which are equipped with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine rated for 208 horsepower. Front-wheel drive models are expected to follow the 4MATIC all-wheel drive versions in early 2015.
As the release of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA and other compact luxury crossovers approaches, Loeber Motors put the all new Mercedes-Benz model up against its competitors in a series of useful comparisons. With comparisons between the Mercedes-Benz GLA vs. Audi Q3 and Mercedes Benz GLA vs. BMW X1, Chicagoland car shoppers have a quick resource to find which model best suits their needs.
