Mercedes-Benz SUV Range Being Refreshed in 2015


Buried in the press release details Daimler’s sales and financial results for the 2014 calendar year, the firm has confirmed that almost the entire Mercedes-Benz range of SUV models will be updated during 2015.

While the German automaker hasn’t revealed exactly what SUV models are set for updates this year, we do have a fairly good idea of what is on the cards. For starters, work is progressing on the replacement to the Mercedes-Benz GLK with the newly named GLC. Additionally, Mercedes-Benz is in the midst of developing the updated M-Class (now known as the GLE) as well a new version of the GL-Class now dubbed the GLS.

Of those cars, the Mercedes-Benz GLC is shaping up to be the most heavily overhauled. Compared to the existing GLK, the GLC will feature a longer wheelbase as well as a wider track. As a result, the entire body of the GLC will be slightly larger than the outgoing GLK to further distinguish it from the Mercedes-Benz GLA.

Due to the longer wheelbase, the Mercedes-Benz GLC will feature more interior space than the current GLK and should be similar in size to the BMW X3 and Audi Q5. Underpinning the GLC will be a similar mechanical package to the C-Class and the SUV will consequently be made available in right-hand drive for markets like the UK, Australia and Japan.
