Mercedes GLK, a new competitor for BMW X3Mercedes Benz has officially announced its new small SUV set to be launched late 2008 – the Mercedes Benz GLK-Class. This will be the fifth SUV/Crossover model in Mercedes’ lineup, joining cars like the M-Class, R-Class, GL and the old-school G-Class SUV. It’ll offer space for five passengers and will have generous trunkspace, which will be accessible over a relatively low tailgate. New underpinnings, which engineers are calling the “direct control chassis,” promise less body roll, a tighter turning radius and more responsive steering.

 The Mercedes GLK will go head to head against competitors such as the BMW X3 and the Land Rover LR2. Guesses on pricing, however, put it under $40,000 to match the BMW X3’s $38,775 starting price and fall far enough below the M-Class MSRP of $44,425. Predictions are that we’ll see the GLK-Class debut at the Detroit Auto Show in January 2008.
