Today we bring the first revealing interior photo of the upcoming 2014 Mercedes-Benz GLA.

As you would expect the cabin is mostly unchanged compared to the A-Class hatchback on which the crossover is based on, including the familiar circular air vents, silver chrome accents and a free-standing COMAND display. This particular prototype also had a wood trim which isn't really compatible with the metallic touches of the cabin.

Previewed by the GLA Concept shown earlier this year at Auto Shanghai, the crossover promises to be one of the most appealing models in its class in terms of design. Engine lineup will most likely be carried over from the hatchback, including the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbo with 360 HP (265 kW) from the A45 AMG which is expected to power the range-topping AMG version.

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz GLA production version will be unveiled in September at Frankfurt Motor Show.
