2009 Mercedes-Benz GLK was caught undisguised in the Ã¢â‚¬Å“Sex and the City: The MovieÃ¢â‚¬Â
The “Sex and the City: The Movie” goes in theatres in 2008, but it is not Carrie Bradshaw or even the seductive Samantha Jones that Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts anticipate the most. After the first spy photos of the yet to be revealed GLK-Class on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills during the filming, again a scene leak from the movie, but this time in the form of clear video footage that shows the all new 2009 Mercedes-Benz GLK Class without a disguise. The GLK footage starts in 1:04 min of the video, and shows front, rear and side view of the car.
The clear video scenes shows that the new GLK borrows design schemes from the GL-Class, but in a compact and cute way. The reason is that the new compact SUV from Mercedes-Benz is the younger brother of GL as the name GLK basically means "short version of GL", with K represents "kurz," meaning short in German.
The GLK is based on the all-new W204 Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Although the grand public debut is expected to be in Sex and the City: The Movie, the GLK could debut as a 2009 model at the North American International Motor Show in 2008. It’s expected to come with a 3.5-liter V6 with Mercedes’s 4Matic all-wheel-drive system as standard. All versions will probably have 7G-Tronic TouchShift automatic transmission. The major competitor is considered to be BMW X3.
