Mercedes-Benz is reportedly considering a baby crossover to sit below its new GLA in the company's growing SUV range.

Dubbed the X-Class, the new small SUV would reportedly be based on the Renault Captur, which was first revealed at last year’s Geneva Motor Show.

Speaking with the UK’s Auto Express, Head of Research and Development for Mercedes-Benz, Thomas Weber, reportedly said the carmaker is considering where to go after the GLA.

“There is the question of what happens below [the GLA],” Mr Weber said. “We are watching it closely, but there are other gaps in the range that are more interesting.”

Both the Renault Captur and the Mercedes-Benz GLA are expected to arrive in Australian showrooms during 2014; with the former arriving in the first half of the year and the latter in the second half.

If ‘Benz was to also bring a new X-Class to Australia, it would join the booming small SUV segment, which saw several new arrivals in 2013 and will see several more this year.

As the German carmaker has many other SUV projects in the pipeline for now - including the MLC - don’t expect an X-Class debut for several years.
