Mercedes-Benz is soon to present America with the smallest crossover SUV they have yet produced in the U.S.  The luxury automaker is determined to create an upscale Mercedes-Benz model for every type of person and family. The demand for crossover SUVs is continuing to rise, especially in the luxury arena.  This new Mercedes-Benz SUV in Tacoma comes with all the luxury amenities, but at a lower cost.

The model will be called the GLA here when it arrives in a year as a 2015 model. It will be the baby of five classes of SUVs for Mercedes in the U.S.

“GLA rounds off the extensive SUV portfolio of Mercedes-Benz,” the automaker said in a statement.

The GLA will be about five inches shorter and three inches narrower than Mercedes’ compact GLK crossover. And it’ll be just about six inches longer and an inch wider than the new sub-compact Buick Encore SUV.  The size is meant to suit SUV fans in crowded cities, though M-B says the GLA will be sturdy enough for off-roading, too.

The SUV will be sold first in Europe and the German maker will display the Euro version at the Frankfurt auto show next month.

For the U.S., the GLA will be powered by a 2-liter, four cylinder, turbo gasoline engine rated 208 horsepower, 258 pounds-feet of torque, mated to a seven-speed automatic. No word on whether the GLA will offer a diesel.  The GLA will offer two-wheel drive or M-B’s 4Matic permanent all-wheel drive.

The SUV extends Mercedes’ move in the small-car direction: The GLA will join the new CLA four-door “coupe” at the small end of the maker’s lineup.

Other premium brands are doing likewise. BMW recently added the small X1 SUV to its lineup and has a smaller 1-series coupe and convertible. Acura adopted a version of the Honda Civic, called ILX, to give it a small, entry sedan. And Audi is bringing a small A3 sedan to replace the current hatch.

Pricing for the GLA has not been set. But the CLA starts at $30,825 with shipping, so the GLA is likely to start in the low 30s.

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class is a roadster of unparalleled luxury.  It is offered in three very different models. At the base end there’s the Mercedes-Benz SLK 250, powered by a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine providing 201 horsepower. What most are probably going to find the best compromise between price and performance in the lineup is the Mercedes-Benz SLK 350 in Tacoma, powered by a 3.5-liter V6 providing 302 horsepower. The top-of-the line, meaning the best and fastest model, is the sizzling V8-powered Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG. The AMG models are specially designed with the best in performance in mind.

Over extensive drive time in the SLK 350, we’ve found it easy to get used to this model’s rhythm and drivability. With any of these automatic models, there’s a paddle-shifted seven-speed automatic pushing force to the rear wheels in a mostly smooth way. Massive, biting brakes are in store, either way, and new torque-vectoring control works with the SLK’s stability control to tighten cornering, giving this latest edition a lot of tech weaponry to tackle corners.

Two beneficial Mercedes traits that have carried over are a rigid body structure and strong, fade-free brakes. Stops from 70 mph are drama-free and use up 167 feet. Brake-pedal feel is excellent; the SLK has traditional hydraulic brakes instead of the brake-by-wire Sensotronic system that is difficult to modulate. A tight structure has always been a Mercedes strength, and the first-generation SLK was blessed with a structure that was largely quiver-free. According to the front office, the new generation increases torsional rigidity by 46 percent and bending stiffness by 19 percent. High-strength steel is used liberally and to good effect: Over even the worst expansion joints, railroad tracks, and potholes, the SLK shoulders the blows with ease.

The top is, quite simply, what the coupe-convertible SLK is all about. You lose some trunk space compared to soft-top rivals, but what you get instead is a tight, refined interior that’s long-distance quiet and comfortable, and essentially a coupe with the top up. Unfortunately, the interior’s still snug for tall drivers and for luggage. Outward visibility can also be difficult with the top up, and there’s no rearview camera system on offer.
