  • New Mercedes GLC will go on sale in November
  • Luxury crossover replaces GLK, offers more modern styling and interior
  • Pricing hasn't been announced, but early models will use a 241-horsepower turbo 4-cylinder engine

The new Mercedes-Benz GLC is coming. That's the latest from Mercedes, who has officially announced several key details about the GLC, which will replace the popular GLK when it goes on sale later this year. Mercedes also revealed several photos of the luxury crossover ahead of its official debut.

On the outside, the GLC -- officially the GLC-Class -- will offer smooth new styling, which is a direct contrast to the sharp corners of its GLK predecessor. Shoppers who didn't like the GLK's boxy look will appreciate the GLC's more mainstream design, which easily bridges the gap between the smaller GLA and the midsize GLE.

Inside, the GLC also offers some upgrades over the GLK, including, most notably, a more upscale interior with improved surfaces and a more modern design. Some of the GLK's average interior plastics are gone, too, replaced by more luxurious materials with a high-end look. Of course, the GLC will also offer more room inside -- both for passengers and for cargo.

Although Mercedes hasn't announced a full engine lineup for the GLC, the first U.S.-bound models -- dubbed GLC300 -- will use a 241-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder. We expect more engines, including a turbocharged V6, a high-performance powerplant for an AMG variant and a fuel-efficient diesel, to follow in the future. Of course, we also expect a lot of new features, as Mercedes has promised an adaptive suspension system and the latest in infotainment technology.

According to Mercedes, the 2016 GLC will officially reach dealerships in November. Although pricing hasn't been announced, we wouldn't expect much of an increase from the GLK's base MSRP of around $39,000 with shipping.

What it means to you: The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC represents Mercedes' latest effort in the highly competitive compact crossover segment.
