With the intention of recruiting younger customers, Mercedes Benz has developed the GLA45 compact SUV, which was revealed at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. Due to hit dealerships later this year, will the upgraded aerodynamics package in addition to speed and power be enough for the younger drivers?

This compact vehicle certainly does pack the punch with a 355-horse power, 2.0 liter four cylinder turbo engine. It has a 7-speed clutch transmission and is outfitted with ample carbon fiber.

This is the manufacturer’s first compact sports utility vehicle- will it pay off and attract the younger and more dynamic car enthusiasts? Product  Manager for GLA Heiko Schmidt spoke to IBTimesTV and was certain that this compact SUV would have a positive impact and effect on the market ahead of its release later this year.
