This version of the Mercedes-Benz is the last version or this model and his final stages before the showing on the market. That’s why is hard to say what his look have special – is that look like popular small SUV sport and handsome sedan or is his new name? His real new name is one of the Mercedes strategies, the 2017 Mercedes GLK will be renamed to a GLC which will make the similar positioning to the C-class of the vehicles.
Rumors said it will be a slightly larger car than the previous model, and also rather sleek and shapely, so it seems that the C-class sedan still keeps a part of his previous look and his look hasn’t changed even the name is. The new thing is much longer and wider wheelbase, and the whole car is on some level bigger.
2017 Mercedes GLK Interior
The bigger wheelbase means more space inside, so expect the spacious cabin with lots of ads and details, much better than competitors BMW X3 and Audi Q5 for example. We will not mention the possibility of the better interior design, expected from this class of manufacturer. The car’s mechanical package will be same as the all-new 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, so with the new C-Class now being manufactured at Mercedes’ plant in the U.S., we can say that there’s a small chance the new 2017 Mercedes GLK will join it. The GLC will also get a right-hand-drive configuration, which means that this model will be allowed to be sold on entering markets such as the U.K., Japan, India, and Australia, where the left-hand-drive-only GLK was never officially sold.
The basic model will have a standard four-cylinder engine with most likely the 2.0-liter unit found in the 2015 C300, which provides 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. The current GLK’s turbocharged 2.1-liter four-cylinder diesel should carry over, and a gasoline V-6 should also be an offer, most likely the turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 good for 329 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque which is found in the 2015 C400. The good news is that a high-performance GLC63 is has been made by the Mercedes-AMG, so we can expect to see a new AMG Sports variant together with an eventual plug-in hybrid.

The new GLC, which arrives as a 2016 model, will debut later this year together with three other high-riding Mercedes vehicles: the new GLE Coupe, the GLE (M-Class facelift) and the GLS (GL-Class facelift). The price still doesn’t available.
