SPY: The 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class scooped in RHD version

The GLK (X 204) was revealed in 2008 and, although there were speculations it would hit UK stores around 2010, it was never produced in right-hand-drive (RHD) version. The situation is about to change with the arrival of the facelifted model for 2013.

The latest spy pics show a camouflaged prototype fitted for 'RHD countries', meaning Mercedes-Benz have finally made up their minds and solved the complicated issues of adapting the modified 4MATIC platform of the GLK for the this configuration. Apart from the position of the steering wheel, this version is identical to the standard model. The headlights, the radiator grille and the bumper will be refreshed, in addition to the new tail lamps and the revamped interior, heavily influenced by the C-Class. Moreover, Mercedes-Benz USA will add a diesel option for the new GLK beginning with this autumn. The GLK 250 CDI uses a 2.1-litre 4-cylinder engine rated at 204 hp and is the sixth model to join the diesel fleet for the U.S. market, alongside the E-, GL-, M-, R- and S- classes.
