Our spy photographers had another meeting with a black-cladded Mercedes-Benz GLA test car in Germany where they managed to snap a couple of shots of the dashboard, which appears to be very similar to that found in the CLA sedan and A-Class hatchback, something we expected since all three cars belong to the same family of models.
On an equally if not more interesting note, CarScoop reader Florian D. forwarded us a document containing Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche's speech at the company's Annual Press Conference in Stuttgart last week.
In it, Zetsche reveals many details about the brand's immediate plans, including the presentation dates for the GLA:
"Two months from now, we will provide a first look at our compact SUV in Shanghai [April 21-29]. The world premiere of the series version will follow at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September," he said.
The Daimler boss didn't elaborate further on the GLA, but we do know that Mercedes-Benz's BMW X1 and Audi Q3 challenger will be offered in both front- and all-wheel drive configurations and an engine lineup sourced from the A-Class.
A big hat tip to Florian D.!
