Lots of testing going about at the Nurburgring, and the next car caught on video by our trusty spy pix providers at Automedia is the Mercedes-Benz GLA Class.

We’ve seen the disguised mule before, when the GLA 45 AMG was snapped doing the Nordschliefe rounds in April, but nothing like video to see what the form looks like on the move.

The spy guys have also managed to capture some new stills of the car, adding to the bonus crop on it.


When it arrives into the market, the GLA Class – essentially previewed by the Concept GLA in Shanghai (seen again in the gallery below) – will be the Tristar’s entry-level SUV, taking on the likes of the BMW X1 and Audi Q3. Sitting on the MLA platform, which is shared by the W176 A-Class, things are shaping up well to the anticipated Frankfurt debut in September.
