2015 Mercedes-Benz GLK
This model represents Mercedes-Benz’s vision of how compact luxury crossover SUV should like. It was presented in 2008, in Beijing Auto Show alongside its arch rival Audi Q5. It was launched in 2008 as 2009 year model, while in North America GLK came for the first time as 2010 year model. After 2012 update, it seems that it is right time for new generation to be presented. New model will probably come as 2015 GLK and we can expect new design, new trim levels, plenty of new features and many other.
2015 Mercedes-Benz GLK redesign
Last time test mule was spotted, it was totally covered with camouflage. According to new spy photos that we have, it seems that 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLK finally started to take of its cover. For the first time we can clearly see some parts that will be on new model. For example, we can see how new grille will look like, just it is a case with new headlights. Just below headlights you can see a cutout which is probably reserved for fog lights. On the rear end of 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLK you can see that taillights are similar to those that are used for new C-Class Wagon. This could mean that some other parts of this and some other models from current line-up might be borrowed too. Interior look of 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLK is still unknown, but there is no doubt that it will be redesigned too.
