A new report coming from Germany indicates Mercedes-Benz will unveil the GLC compact crossover in June.

Mercedes-Benz is implementing a new nomenclature which also affects the outgoing GLK as the model will be renamed GLC as a reference to the similarly-sized C-Class upon which it will be based. Recent spy shots have shown prototype with a light amount of camouflage, indicating that an official reveal is coming and according to the latest German gossip the compact crossover will premiere in June.

Aside from the more modern design and new platform, the GLC brings some other novelties as it has been engineered for RHD markets and it will likely spawn an AMG Sport derivative with a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 sitting underneath the fully fledged Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 which is getting a beefier twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8.

Mercedes-Benz has decided to make the model a little bit bigger to create enough distance from the GLA so expect a more accommodating interior cabin with a layout heavily influenced by the C-Class as seen in a recent batch of spy images.

Sales of the GLC should kick off in the third quarter of 2015.
