New-gen Mercedes-Benz GLK spied

The new generation of the Mercedes-Benz GLK has been recently spied while it was being tested and it further compete with its main rivals, the Q5 and the X3.

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLK will slightly grow in size and it will have a longer wheelbase than the outgoing version, in order to make room for the newly unveiled GLA, the company’s smallest crossover. The hood of the model has been stretched and its front axle has been pushed forward to accommodate the longer wheelbase. This will lead to more interior space and improved aerodynamics, which should help the vehicle become more popular than its competitors.

The new generation of the Mercedes-Benz GLK seems to be sportier than the outgoing one and the roof is more steeply sloped towards the rear, hinting at a coupe-like profile. Our spy photographers are saying that the rear window, on the prototype pictured below, is use to fool onlookers. As far as the engine lineup goes, a 1.8L four-cylinder turbocharged unit is expected, probably in the GLK 250, along with a 2.1 liter four-cylinder diesel in the GLK 250 BLueTEC and a V6 in the GLK 350. It’s unknown whether Mercedes-Benz will offer an AMG version. The new GLK will also enter some RHD markets like the UK, Australia and Japan and it’s believed to be launched in 2015.
