Having only recently released details of their Vision GLK Freeside Compact SUV “Concept”, Mercedes Benz have now released the preview video. Due to take its first bow at the Detroit Motor Show in a few days time the Freeside Compact uses a four-cylinder 2.2-litre Bluetec diesel, with an output of 125 kW/170 hp running through a 7G-Tronic seven speed automatic transmission.

Mercedes may be calling the Freeside Compact a concept but we all know it is a production ready version of the upcoming GLK, due for a third quarter launch in 2008. Click through for the video.
