Mercedes GLK spotted in Germany, due on sale in 2015, will be sold in the UK for the first time

These latest spy shots show the new Mercedes-Benz GLK testing in Germany.

The model is due to go on sale in 2015, and has been engineered in right-hand drive format so will be available in the UK for the first time.

Already spotted testing in the US, the GLK shares its platform with the new C-class. The all-new C-class will make its debut at the Detroit motor show next year.

This latest test mule looks to be riding much lower than previously seen models, and is noticably longer than the current GLK - suggesting Mercedes is looking to maximise interior space inside the cabin. 

Mercedes is planning to bring in eight new SUVs in the coming years, of which the GLK and the new GLA are two. The brand will also look to produce a new supermini-based SUV, and BMW X5 and Range Rover rivals as well as replacements for the current ML, GL and G-class models.

    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
  • Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer
    First Drive
    13 October 2017
    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
