A handful of Mercedes GLC prototypes have been spied undergoing testing in Europe.

Set to replace the aging GLK, the GLC features curvaceous bodywork that echoes the rest of Mercedes' lineup. The camouflage hides of a lot details but we can see the model will have a two bar grille that is flanked by LED-infused headlights. The crossover also has a rounded rear end with a dual exhaust system.

Interestingly, the one of the prototypes was caught testing without rear doors. We're not entirely sure of the reason but there appears to be dummies in the rear seats.

While we can't see much of the interior in the video, previous spy photos have shown the model will be heavily influenced by the C-Class. As a result, there are higher quality materials, a freestanding infotainment system and a familiar dashboard.

Engine options will also carryover from the C-Class, so expect an assortment of familiar petrol and diesel units. There should also be a new AMG variant with a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that develops 476 PS (350 kW) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque.
