Report: Mercedes-Benz confirmed to be introducing new sporty 2014 MLC crossover

Mercedes-­Benz is reportedly jumping on the low-­slung and sporty crossover route a la Infiniti FX and BMW X6 with a new model called the MLC. Due for the 2014 model year with an estimated sticker price of around $60,000, the new 2014 Mercedes-­Benz MLC was recently confirmed with CARandDRIVER after speaking with “two-­high level executives.”

In what will apparently look like an ML-­Class with its ass chopped off and a CLS-­like roofline, the new crossover will run up directly against the aforementioned X6 and FX.

Mercedes-­Benz apparently sees market potential, which was first established by the FX and further perpetuated with the BMW X6—still a hot seller to this day. Demand has also increased in the US, Europe, and China in particular.
Expect the usual range of six-­ and eight-­cylinder engines for the US‐bound version. Of course, you can also count on a new AMG model.
