Mercedes-Benz GLC X205 – Spy Shots. For those still unfamiliar with the new Mercedes naming scheme, the GLC is a direct replacement for the current GLK. It’s based on the same ideas, but has been made slightly larger and more spacious, not to mention a whole lot more beautiful.
Codenamed X205, this SUV will share its new platform with the W205 C-Class sedan. This means we are going to see an extensive use of aluminum and much more economical engines. The design will be more focused on practicality, offering the driver plenty of rear visibility though the tall greenhouse structure. A direct rival for the BMW X3, the GLC will also have a premium German look to it.
