New SUV Mercedes

Mercedes-Benz (MB) will prepare a new model to catch in the compact SUV segment. Competitors who had already entered this market such as BMW X3 and X1 plus Audi Q3 and Q5 have. In order to compete, Dieter Zetsche, MB boss, make sure it will produce two different SUV segment.

This model will compete with the X1 and Q3 are made of basis A and B Class. It is based on the concept of Modular Front Architecture (MFA), the front wheels with a transverse engine. 2700 mm wheelbase, same as A AAU B-Class.

Only front and rear wheelbase is wider. The suspension system is slightly different because of the distance around the swing arm is longer. Motion will also be available four-wheel (4WD).

One more is not really a new model and was shown in 2008 and 2010, the GLK. At that MB will facing the problems when they wanted to expand production for the right wheel. The biggest problem is the front axle on 4WD system is having trouble with higher moving. Because it requires considerable funds, and finally stop to produce.
