Mercedes-Benz GLA Concept SUV Includes Video Projecting Head Lamps

Say hello to the new Mercedes GLA Concept compact crossover.  It was unveiled at Shanghai auto show this week and boasts some rather surprising technology that most certainly warrants a look.

In addition to what is rapidly becoming an industry standard  turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, Mercedes has outfitted the GLA concept with a set of laser beam projecting headlights.  And while they serve to illuminate the path that lay ahead, Mercedes says that they can also fire an image onto a screen.  Yes, you read that right.  You can create your own drive-in movie theater with the new GLA Concept compact crossover.  It’s also said to come with a set of roof rackable HD cameras that can be removed when needed.

Aesthetic features include 20-inch rims, interior leather trim that boasts 65 feet of hand-stitched seams, and air vents that change color – red for warm air and blue for cool air.  A mess of fiber optic lighting adds further allure and a motorized tailgate, amongst many other features, lend further opulence to the GLA Concept compact cross over.

Sorry, no word on when the GLA will hit showroom floors, but I can tell you that its 2.0l engine will produce 208 horses of power and 258 pound-feet of torque.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
