Mercedes-Benz is planning a new small crossover, provisionally called BLK, for launch in late 2011 as part of the new A and B-Class ranges.
The BLK will slot into the line-up below the superior GLK and compete with the likes of the forthcoming BMW X1 and Land Rover LRX in a new market segment for small, premium SUVs.
The BLK will get four-circle hammer and there is also the possibility of a front-controls-take ‘eco’ style of the car. A choice of four-cylinder address-booster gasoline and diesel engines are being lined up, sized between 1.6 litres and 2.2 litres.
