Mercedes-Benz GLA Class
Originally debuted as a compact SUV concept at the Shanghai Motor Show in 2013, the GLA first production version of the vehicle was revealed later that same year at the Frankfurt Motor show and started arriving in dealer showrooms in 2014.

Upon launch, the GLA was marketed in Japan alongside Nintendo’s Super Mario and the car actually features in the Mario Kart 8  game, alongside two other classic Mercedes-Benz vehicles.

The GLA name derives from the company’s existing naming structure for SUV’s, which all carry the GL followed by the current placement in the hierarchy. The letter G is for gelandewagen (off-road vehicle), the letter L is a link to A, which stands for A-Class.
