The name GLK is an acronym for Geländewagen Luxus Kompaktklasse, taking its name from largerMercedes-Benz GL-Class, which in turn was named after the G-Wagen or Geländewagen. Thus, the GL is the luxury-oriented version of the G, and GLK is the compact version of the GL. It's successor is now called the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class.
From 2015, with the release of the second generation X205 model, the GLK-Class will be renamed toMercedes-Benz GLC-Class as per the revised nomenclature adopted by the brand. Under this scheme, SUVs use the base name "GL", followed by the model's placement in Mercedes-Benz hierarchy. The "G" is for geländewagen (German for off-road vehicle) and alludes the long-running G-Wagen. This is followed by the letter "L" that acts as a linkage with the letter "C"—the GLC being the SUV equivalent to the C-Class.
