The Mercedes GLA was introduced less than two years ago but new details are already starting to emerge about the next-generation model.

According to Autobild, the redesigned crossover will arrive in 2019 and be significantly larger than its predecessor.   Nothing is official but the magazine says we can expect more headroom and legroom which is badly needed.

Little else is known about the second-generation GLA but it will ride on the MFA 2 platform and will reportedly feature an improved nine-speed dual-clutch transmission.  There are also rumors about plug-in hybrid variants and a new GLA Coupe which would follow in the footsteps of the GLC Coupe and GLE Coupe.
