Baby crossover could be with us by 2016.
Rumors of a baby crossover to slot in below the GLA-Class first surfaced almost a year ago, and according to Auto Express the idea of a new X-Class remains firmly on the table. The sub-GLA crossover will be based on the Renault Captur. Mercedes head of R&D told the British publication “There is the question of what happens below [the GLA]. We are watching it closely.” He also admitted “there are other gaps in the range that are more interesting” with a sportier variant of the ML dubbed the MLC set for a reveal in 2015. The X-Class would follow in 2016.
