Renderings have now turned up of a long-speculated compact crossover from Mercedes-Benz. The BLK, if it does become reality, is expected to be based on the B-Class compact. This small CUV/SUV segment is a burgeoning one with the recent introductions of the BMW X1 and Mini Countryman along with the upcoming Land Rover LRX.
Autobild is reporting that the BLK would be about 4.4 meters long, splitting the difference between the Countryman and X1. The rendering follows the recent Mercedes styling direction with with a more upright version of the grille similar to the SLS AMG and and the recent F800 concept. We wouldn't expect to see the BLK arrive until later in 2011 or perhaps 2012, following the new B-Class, although a concept will probably show up sooner.
