After all those spy shots and all the hype, we are finally seeing some official detail of the upcoming 2009 Mercedes Benz GLK. AutoBild is reporting that the 2009 Mercedes GLK will be on the road in August 2008. The small SUV, which is Mercedes’ answer to the BMW X3, Volvo XC60 and the upcoming Volkswagen Tiguan will measure 4.50 meters long and will be based on the platform of the C-Class (much like the X3 which is based on the 3-Series platform). In addition to three different V6 variants, the Mercedes GLK will also come in a 2.2 liter four cylinder diesel engine that will produce about 204 horsepower.
The Mercedes GLK will have a trunk space of 450 liters along with a tank size of 80 liters. The car is expected to be priced around 36,000 euros. These images here are probably renderings that closely resemble the GLK.
