Automotive naming schemes can get a little bit weird as they age. Just look at the impending BMW lineup with a rear-wheel drive 2 Series and front-wheel drive 2 Series Active Tourer on sale together – of course, to say nothing of the fact that the 2 Series is actually the successor to the 1 Series coupe/convertible in the States. Crazy. However, Mercedes-Benz might be taking steps in the opposite direction to actually make its SUV and crossover lineup easier for customers to understand.

Like the rest of its German counterparts, Mercedes-Benz seems bent on expanding its crossover SUV portfolio. The R-Class may be driving off into the sunset, along with the two-door Gelandewagen, but Mercedes still offers the M-Class, GLK, GL and G-Class models. The new baby GLA is on its way, but that won't be the last addition to the range.
