Mercedes GLK coming in 2008
The competition on the SUV market is getting bigger every day. After the new X3 and X5 launched by BMW, Mercedes is preparing a new competitor: a small premium SUV, probably to be called GLK. It will be launched in 2008 in Europe and in 2009 in North America.
"The new SUV is a very interesting car for the US market," said Klaus Maier, Mercedes executive vice president of sales and marketing.
The new GLK will be based on the Mercedes C-class platform and will be a smaller version of the GL-Class.
