Spy-Photo

Last month we showed you a rendering and some spyshots of the upcoming Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class. Let’s remind ourselves of the Tristar’s new naming rules – the GLK is to be renamed GLC, because it’s C-Class-based. Look at the interior and see if you can spot some differences.

Unlike its boxy predecessor, the new GLC wears a more curvaceous dress under a slightly larger body, giving the smaller GLA more room to breathe. Also, unlike the GLK, there will be right-hand drive GLCs, reports say.

More potential markets, then – will Malaysia be among them? If so, the Audi Q5 and BMW X3 will soon no longer be on their own in these markets.

Speculated is a base GLC 250 with a new 1.8 litre four-cylinder turbo engine, a GLC 250 BlueTEC with the familiar 2.1 litre four-cylinder turbodiesel and a V6-powered GLC 350. We’ve seen something before that could be a GLC 350 e plug-in hybrid, and our carparazzi expects AMG versions in the future, too.
