Mercedes-Benz mulling GLA 'Coupe' - report

The next-generation Mercedes-Benz GLA could be getting a 'coupe' version to tackle the likes of the BMW X2, according to a new report. Speaking with Top Gear UK, CEO Dieter Zetsche said the new version of the A-Class-based crossover will "have two interpretations". "The new BMW X2 is basically like the [current] GLA,” he said. "And you will see a new GLA. As in other segments we’ll have two interpretations. So the GLA will be more in the SUV direction, and that will expand our scope."
