Mercedes MLK to be unveiled at next year Geneva Motor Show
Mercedes will unveil its new compact SUV at the Geneva Motor Show next March, in the same time as the production version of Audi Q5. The 2008 MLK will feature a large grille, smart squared-off headlamps, rectangular exhaust tips, a small roof spoiler and a large vertical tailgate which opens down to the rear bumper.
The newcomer shares its four-wheel-drive platform with the C-Class 4-Matic Estate. However, the SUV will be tuned for on-road handling rather than dedicated mud-plugging.
The 2008 MLK will be powered by a wide range of engines, including the V6 petrol and diesel units found in the new C-Class saloon.
