Another video of the Mercedes-Benz GLA Class doing the rounds on the ‘Ring – we first saw the GLA 45 AMG in spyshots back in April, and now the Automedia folk have caught the car on the move on the Nordschleife, adding to the earlier GLA Class video that came about last month.

Expected to debut in Frankfurt in September, the GLA 45 AMG will sit at the top of the Tristar’s new entry-level SUV class. Underpinned by a MLA platform, the vehicle will be equipped the same M132 2.0 litre twin-scroll turbo four-cylinder as found on the A 45 AMG hatch and CLA 45 AMG four-door coupe, with 360 hp and 450 Nm for output figures.

Compared to the base GLA versions, the GLA 45 AMG should be dressed up in similar AMG fashion as its above-mentioned cousins – on the cards should be bigger wheels, larger air intakes and twin exhaust pipes, among other things.
