Uh-oh! Looks like Mercedes-Benz has decided to AMG-ify their upcoming baby crossover, the 2015 Mercedes GLA. Get excited for some Grade-A luxury crossover mayhem.


Details on the GLA45 are coming soon, but it will have the same 355-horsepower, 332-pound-foot 2.0-liter turbo four that sees duty in the A45 AMG and CLA45 AMG. And the show car has been tricked out by AMG's Affalterbach facility with black wheels, an aluminum spoiler, "turbo" badges, and other ostentatious goodies.

If you're gonna drive a small crossover, it may as well be one that's been overcooked by AMG, right?
