Spied! 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA Prototype

The good Germans from Mercedes-Benz took over a motel outside of Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah last week to test out what looks to be the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA and drive what looked like most of the silver star’s premium lineup.

Based on the company’s A-Class platform, the GLA is part hot hatch, part crossover, even part off-roader and poised as one of the less-expensive entry points to the brand. From the looks of these shots captured by TFLcar reader Aydan Villarreal, the next-generation GLA will be more squared off in the rear (and hopefully) roomier than its current iteration (see photo below).

And here’s a gallery of the some of the vehicles Mercedes-Benz brought to Utah in case you were wondering how their engineers travel. Looks like the entire lineup made the trip.
