« Back Mercedes GLA45-S AMG
Win the new Mercedes GLA45-S AMG in the BOTB Dream Car Competition.
There are plenty of people who love hot hatches, but prefer the looks, driving position and view from an SUV. This has led to the myriad of new smaller SUVs on the market and the ‘crossover’ – somewhere between the two.
The Mercedes GLA has been a leader in this market for years and now there’s a brand new model, which has lost the slightly odd styling of the older model and updated it with an A-Class style nose and a much curvier, better proportioned body.
But this is no ordinary GLA – this is the fire-breathing GLA45-S, with the same 2.0 litre turbocharged 4-cyl engine as the A45-S which means it has a staggering 415bhp and 500Nm. That means it can hit 62mph in just over 4 seconds on the way to a 168mph top speed.
Visually it gets the usual AMG Panamericana grille, with suitable pumped-up bodywork and large wheels. If you option the £6000 Plus pack you can also have the awesome Aero Pack along with a load of other kit – who doesn’t want canards and big wings on their crossover SUV!
This is a unique car in the segment and we bet it’ll be a huge success!
