CAR magazine have picked up some new information about a new mid size GLK Coupe that they plan to release. This will be a midsize SUV and will compete with the Audi Q5 and the BMW X3. It may also provide some competition for the Porsche 2014 Macan which is a small SUV. At the moment it only comes in a right hand drive so has not been seen in the UK.
It is expected to appear in 2016 and will be known as the GLC (second generation GLK). It will be a more stylish car, sleeker in appearance and therefore more appropriate for a three door coupe.
It will also be on the new rear drive Mercedes platform and therefore one of the first models to have this.
It will come will a selection of engine choices. It is expected that there will be 2.0 or 2.2 diesel and petrol engines in most of them with an AMG version that may have a 4.0 litre twin turbo V8. The higher level cars will have Mercedes 4Matic drive and on the cheaper models it will be an option. The cars will start at a price of £29,000.
