This is by far our best look at the second generation GLK set to be sold with the GLC name to highlight its similarity in size with the C-Class (W205) upon which it will be based. As you can see, it will bring a major departure as far as the styling is concerned since the GLK's boxy body will be replaced by more curvaceous lines providing the GLC with a youthful look although many will miss the GLK's edgy design.

 

The interior cabin was spied recently by a WCF reader and doesn't hold any surprises as it will be largely carried over from the C-Class. It's the same story with the engine lineup so there's very little that we don't know about the GLC which will be slightly larger than the outgoing model in order to distance itself from the GLA, now serving as Mercedes-Benz's entry-level crossover.

Set to debut on June 17, the GLC is scheduled to go on sale sometime this fall and will be available for the first time with a right-hand drive layout.
