Mercedes exec tweets photos of the GLA & S-Class Coupe

Mercedes-Benz USA President Steve Cannon has tweeted pictures of the 2014 GLA and S-Class Coupe undergoing testing in Death Valley.

The executive didn't have much to say about the models but confirmed the CL replacement will be called the S-Class Coupe and said "It's amazing!"

Speaking of the S-Class Coupe, it will feature a sleek design with soft curves and gently flowing surfaces. Engine options are expected to include:

  • A twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine with 333 HP (245 kW) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque

  • A twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 with 585 bhp (436 kW) and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft)

The GLA, on the other hand, will be an entry-level crossover that battles the Audi Q3 and BMW X1. It will likely be offered with a variety of familiar engines including:

  • A 1.8-liter diesel with 134 HP (100 kW) and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) of torque
  • A 2.1-liter diesel with 168 HP (125 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque
