Entry-level luxury vehicles are hotter than ever, and the small crossover segment is set to continue that growth with the X3 and RDX soon to be joined by the Infinity EX, Audi Q5, and Mercedes GLK. The folks over at KGP Photography captured Mercedes' upcoming crossover testing at Germany's Nurburgring, and if there is any doubt which vehicle resides within the cross-hairs of GLK, one of the pics has an X3 in the background.
Expect the GLK to come equipped with Mercedes' corporate 3.5L V6, seven-speed automatic, and 4Matic AWD. We'd be really excited if the boys and girls from Benz-land threw an optional BluTec diesel in the mix, and a AMG 6.3L V8 wouldn't suck either. The GLK is scheduled to hit the streets as an 09' model, and it'll have plenty of competition in this soon to be crowded segment.

      "...and the small crossover segment is set to continue that growth with the X3 and RDX soon to be joined by the Infinity EX, Audi Q5, and Mercedes GLK."

      Infiniti is spelled with an "i" at the end. That's like automotive journalism 101.

      Don't forget about the Volvo XC60... even though it's still in concept form.

      One word: Diesel. This market is sagging.. and mileage is going to win the game for any competitor here. If MB can pump a swell diesel engine into this thang.. it really will sell well. Otherwise.. judging from the whopping *4* comments here in 8 hours.. it's not going to light too much of a fire in the market.
