The most obvious element of the new GLK's cabin is the large screen mounted atop the dash (similar to what we've seen on recent entry-level Mercedes offerings like the CLA-Class) for infotainment and navigation. This screen is controlled using the new Comand controller, which looks almost the same as what Mercedes uses in the 2014 S-Class. Also like the S-Class, the GLK will ditch its three-pod gauge cluster for a two-pod layout with a large LCD screen in the middle.
We expect the new crossover to offer many of the new driver-assist features introduced on Mercedes' latest flagship sedan, including the automated-driving capabilities of Distronic Plus with Steering Assist and Stop&Go Pilot. We're also hearing that an AMG variant could be in the works to compete against the Audi SQ5 and the upcoming BMW X3 M.
