TheMercedes SLC is not the only miniature version of a larger car that Mercedes is developing and while the SLC will be the baby brother of the larger SLS, the G Wagon will get the company of GLG, a toned down version that will be based on the A-class’s MFA platform. As reported by us last week, Mercedes Benz has confirmed the development of an A-class based SUV to rival the Audi Q3 and BMW X1. The GLG along with the GLA will mark the entry of the manufacturer in the premium compact crossover segment. "This start of production marks a further milestone in our Mercedes-Benz 2020 growth strategy. The A-Class represents our offensive in the compact segment." "And there is more to come: The compact SUV will be the third model we will build here in Rastatt," said Daimler Chief Executive Dieter Zetsche. The new GLG should debut in 2015 and we expect it to be priced around 25lakhs.
