Mercedes to adopt new naming system
German auto giant Mercedes-Benz has announced a reshuffling of its current model nomenclature with the aim of placing more emphasis on its core models; the A, B, C, E and S-class.
As a result, the compact GLK SUV, currently only available in left-hand drive markets, will be known as the GLC to indicate its ties with the C-class compact sedan. At the same the luxury ML SUV will be rebadged as the GLE while the range topping seven-seat GL will become the GLS. The change is expected to take effect next year.
From 2016, the fourth generation SLK roadster will adopt the SLC name. Benz have also announced that the iconic G-class SUV and SL roadster would not be affected by the changes.
The model range is expected to consist out of the following once the changes have been completed:
CLA Shooting Brake (expected next year)
CLS Shooting Brake
GLE Coupe (BMW X6 rival expected next year)
