Mercedes-Benz will reveal the GLC on June 17

Mercedes-Benz has revealed the first official sketch of the company's latest SUV dubbed as the GLC.

Designed to replace the Mercedes-Benz GLK, the five-seater GLC appears to be fitted with sharp-looking headlights, a large front bumper, a soft-nose grill and a sculpted hood. In addition, the vehicle seems to have a sculpted hood as well as a roof-mounted spoiler.

The GLC will be available with Mercedes-Benz's multi-chamber Air Body Control suspension system as well as the Dynamic Select system and 4MATIC all-wheel drive.

According to Autocar UK, the GLC will be powered by a range of engines from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder and 3.0-liter six-cylinder gasoline units as well as a 2.1-liter four-cylinder diesel engine. It will be mated to either a seven or nine-speed automatic transmission. Rear and four-wheel drive will be available. A plug-in petrol-electric hybrid engine that is capable of running on electric power for up to 31 km will also be available.

The Mercedes-Benz GLC is set to make its world premiere on June 17.
