According to a recent report, Mercedes will launch a BMW X4 competitor in 2014.

Tentatively dubbed the GLC (Geländecoupe), the crossover will feature sporty styling and a coupe-like roofline. Measuring 4.4 meters long, the vehicle will reportedly ride on the MFA platform which will underpin the next-generation A- and B-Class. Engine options are expected to include a 204 PS (150 kW / 201 hp) 1.8-liter four-cylinder petrol and a 170 PS (125 kW / 168 hp) 2.2-liter four-cylinder diesel.

As we have previously reported, Mercedes has already confirmed they are working on a B-Class crossover. Known as the BLK, the model will compete with the BMW X1 and Audi Q3.
