Autocar suggests so;


The styling of the striking Mercedes-Benz Concept GLA has been toned down for the production version, due on sale next year, judging by these spy pictures of an advanced test mule at the Nürburgring.
The Concept GLA was well received on its debut at the Shanghai motor show in April. But at the time, insiders said the styling was “exaggerated” and it would be given a more conventional look inspired by the A-class. These spy images back that up.
Although the flared surfaces have been toned down, the production GLA does still sport a sleeker, more rounded body than other SUVs in the Mercedes line-up. The model is designed to be Mercedes' answer to the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Range Rover Evoque.
The GLA is underpinned by the same front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive MFA architecture used by the A-class, B-class and CLA. The concept's dimensions of 4383mm long, 1978mm wide and 1579mm high, with a wheelbase of 2699mm, are representative of the production car.
Four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines are likely to be cherry-picked from the A-class range, just as Mercedes UK has done with the CLA. A GLA45 AMG model will crown the range, this all-wheel-drive version being powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine with 335bhp.
