The German car manufacturer Mercedes-Benz will unveil at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show the new GLA compact crossover. Today, the Stuttgart-based car maker has unveiled an official video teaser. 

More than that, yesterday, Mercedes-Benz has published the first official sketches of the upcoming GLA production version. 

On the outside, the German crossover is heavily inspired by the A-Class. It only comes with new bulging fenders, tailgate mounted spoiler and two bar grille. Inside the cabin, everything is identical to the A-Class. Under the hood, the engine lineup will be, of course, the same with the one found on the A-Class hatchback. 

According to some rumors, the upcoming GLA crossover will also get a performance version. It will be dubbed GLA45 AMG and it will come with the turbocharged 2.0 liter four cylinder engine that can develop 360 horsepower.
