Scoop: Mercedes-Benz starts testing the GLA 200 CDI in India

Mercedes-Benz has begun testing the GLA in India and the vehicle is currently undergoing homologation process. According to our sources only the diesel variants have reached our shores indicating that the introductory model will be available with a single engine option.

Mercedes unveiled the GLA at the Auto Expo and announced that it may launch the car this year. The GLA is a compact crossover built on the platform used by the A-Class and the B-Class, it will also share the powertrains with these cars. 

The car will be sold in petrol and diesel variants in India, however in the intial stage a petrol engine won't be offered. Instead we will get a four-cylinder 2.1-litre CDI diesel engine producing 135bhp and 300Nm of torque. This engine will be mated to a seven-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox with paddle shifts.
