Mercedes-Benz GLAGerman magazine Autozeitung features a rendering of a Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class compact SUV on its front page this month.

If such a project indeed exists, GLA will be a compact SUV to go against the Audi Q3 and the upcoming BMW X1 and might end up being based on the platform of the next generation A-Class and B-Class, which means a transverse engine layout.
