The Mercedes GLA is one of the main draws at the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show - and this is incredibly close to what we'll see in Mercedes' dealerships in 2014. The GLA is the next addition to the A-class family, Merc's smallest model range.

The GLA, which is tipped to cost from around £25,000, is a rival to the burgeoning ranks of compact SUVs - an alternative to the successful Range Rover Evoque, in other words. On this first viewing, the baby Merc mud-plugger looks like a svelte and stylish baby 4x4, bristling with the latest tech and gizmos.
